> Scripts > Open Roles > POWERMAN and KIDS

The kid thinks I’m a real robot. So I do my best to oblige.

Kids need people to look up to. But real heroes are too busy saving the world to show up at birthday parties. That’s where I come in.

I found the armor in an old trailer while doing some scavenging.

I want to take it off, but not in front of the kids.

My alter ego’s name is Sam. If you see me with my friends, try not to tell them I moonlight as a robot.

It gets real sweaty in here. There’s gotta be a way to vent out the smell before I get used to it. That’d be even worse.

I don’t know what all the gauges in here mean. What’s AP stand for?


Kid 1

Powerman will stop any raider, just you watch!

It’s Powerman here to save the day!

He’s the hero the Commonwealth needs!

This is the best birthday ever!

At night, Powerman shuts down to conserve energy.

Kid 2

When I grow up, I wanna be a robot just like Powerman!

(Make a couple of robot noises first) That’s Powerman powering up!

I’m gonna make a Powerman song!
Power, power, he’s got so much power…eh, it’s a work in progress.

Powerman doesn’t like to play at night, that’s because he knows it’s past our bedtime.


Scene 1

I heard there’s a deathclaw in Salem as big as the great green wall!

You think size scares Powerman! He’ll destroy that deathclaw and eat its baby eggs!

Ew, gross!

He’s gonna do it. You’ll see. Right, Powerman!

Well, deathclaws are pretty dangerous. I may be a superhero, but I’m not invincible.

Aw, come on! You’re not afraid, are you?

Um, well…

Of course not. Powerman isn’t afraid of anything!

A deathclaw, huh…(sigh)

Scene 2

What do you think happened to Powerman?

I don’t know, but I’ve been reading about this new hero. Grognak the Barbarian! He’s so great, he doesn’t need robot powers to smash the bad guys!

Wow, can I meet him?

He’s not real dummy, he’s in a comic book!

Kid 1

Powerman hasn’t been back for ages. I hope he’s okay.

I guess Grognak’s cool too.

Kid 2

Grognak the Barbarian is part of a group called the Unstoppables. That means they can’t be stopped!

Powerman? Eh, I’m sure he’s around here somewhere.
