Title: Twisted Metal TV Show story ideas
Post by TrentMendez on 04/07/20 at 20:53:52
Hello to anyone that may read this. I am a new member of this forum and this is me imagining what kind of background stories for certain characters I want to see for the proposed Twisted Metal TV show by PlayStation Productions.
This first idea is about the duo of Mike & Stu and how they obtain the truck Hammerhead. I imagine them being high school dropouts and their story is trying to get women and they talk about stealing a truck. Mike is told by a friend about the truck owned by a hunter named Catfish. Stu is reluctant and Mike tells him it could help them impress the ladies so Stu agrees.  
They manage to steal the truck but not without trouble from Catfish who starts to shoot at them when they manage to take off with the keys to the truck. They successfully escape unharmed and with Hammerhead, angering Catfish. Soon after they get back to Midtown they are arrested. Thinking that they are going to be locked up for good, they are bailed out of jail by a stranger neither of them had met before. The man meeting them outside of jail is part of a group called Apocalypse 9, a dangerous group that will play a big role in the stories following this one. This will be continued with another character introduction.

This post will explain the rules of the Twisted Metal tournament for the TV show version. I want to change it for the sake of making it fit a real world atmosphere so to speak. Instead of having multiple contestants in each round like how the games have like 8 in each of them. I would want only three competitors in each round where they try to advance to the next one. There will be three  triple threat qualifying rounds and they will have two phases to go through in each round.
The first phase will have the three competitors compete in a triple threat style rule setting inspired by pro wrestling where the first driver that kills another contestant will qualify. The second phase will have the qualifying driver to drive to a rendezvous point that will transport them to the next location for the next round. But if there is a contestant remaining in that round, they can still kill the qualifying contestant to advance and take their spot. Or, the surviving contestant can drive to a different rendezvous point where they will be taken to another location to compete with another bracket of contestants to stay in contention and have a second chance to qualify and get closer to getting their wish.
In between the rounds when the qualifying driver is being transported, I would have them be able to get their vehicle repaired or switched out with another vehicle if they choose to do so. And I think it will give the show time to take a breather or to slow down to have character development. The driver could reflect on what they went through in the previous round and anticipate what awaits them in the next one. And it could create tension or pressure for the contestant who failed to qualify and give them time to reevaluate their strategy or method to try to win.
I think these rule settings could also help establish a rivalry in the series. For example, driver A could be close to killing driver B but driver C would steal the last minute or last second kill from driver A. I would like to see that happen where driver A will hope to see driver C again later in the competition and hope to kill them to build their confidence up in winning the tournament.
Also, I would have outside factors come into play during the competition. I would have police trying to stop the competitors and try to arrest or kill them. I would have ambulance vans driving around trying to rescue people who are in the middle of the crossfire of the fighting contestants. I want these factors to create a sense of panic for the show.
Finally, I will have the three qualifying drivers to compete against each other while also having to compete with the final contestant Minion, who would be a main antagonist for the show. I will also reveal other contestants for the tournament. I already had Mike & Stu competing as a duo and reveal who would face who in the show.

Hello again to anyone reading this. This post is going to provide a sense of time showing how long the Twisted Metal tournament is taking place. A few locations where the contestants are competing in. And detailing a couple of events happening during the battles.
I would have the tournament last a week and during the week there will be the three separate qualifying rounds and the final round. The first qualifying round will happen at the beginning of the week. And the next two qualifying rounds will happen two days apart from each other. The final round would happen at the end of the week closing off the tournament. This could be a good way to establish the passage of time while also giving time for a contestant to be transported to their final location. And also give time for a surviving contestant to be transported to one of the other locations where the competition is happening at for their second chance to qualify in the tournament.
Now the locations where the competitors will be battling at. The first location will be California and the first battlefield would be the Freeway location from Twisted Metal : Black. This area has a hospital that would get damaged during the battle. A construction yard that will be one of the rendezvous points. A go-kart track which will be the second rendezvous point. Another thing that is in the area is a train that I would like to see get derailed creating more panic if it were to crash into something.
The second battlefield will also be in California and it will be Sunsprings from Twisted Metal (2012). This place has a movie theater with the huge metal film reel on top of it and I would have it get taken down and roll down the streets causing chaos. Since it will be a couple days that will pass from the first qualifying round, the area will be on high alert for any more dangerous activity because of the competition causing severe damage in Midtown. And here at this location I would have a couple of characters that are non-competitors trying to save people and try to stop the actual competitors. And one of the non-competitors would get hurt and that would carry over into the next battlefield.
The second location would be New York containing the third battlefield Metro Square from Twisted Metal (2012). This place resembles Times Square and it has an ice rink, a museum that would get destroyed and creates a makeshift ramp leading to the subway system. And the Statue of Liberty which could also get damaged. I would have an important plot point happen here involving a couple of non-contestants based here in New York and include one non-contestant from California. And this battlefield will include any remaining contestants competing here for their second chance to qualify.
The final location would be unknown but it will be the final battlefield for the finalists who made it and they will meet the final competitor Minion. The battlefield would be the Blackrock Stadium, but it would be modified into an underground arena that would be owned by Calypso. Here at this battlefield, Calypso will finally be shown and tell the remaining contestants that if they are able to kill Minion they will win the competition and claim their prize. This would also feature a non-contestant who managed to sneak into the arena by using one of the rendezvous points known only to the contestants.
The next post will feature the non-contestants that I want to see and what important events happen to them in the story.

Hello once again. This will focus on some of the non-contestants that I want to see play vital roles in this TV show version of Twisted Metal. Here are the list of villains I want to see: Calypso, Apocalypse 9, a group that was removed from the first Twisted Metal video game and Dr Zemu from Twisted Metal: Head-On. 
Here are the descriptions of the villains roles in the story. Calypso would be the main antagonist just like he is in the video games. He will be the mysterious figure that operates out of secrecy. He won't have his face shown until the very end of the tournament when the finalists reach the final round. I want him to be a bit like Wilson Fisk from the Netflix Daredevil series.
Apocalypse 9 will be a group hired by Calypso that will find the contestants for Twisted Metal. Other roles that they will have are transporting the contestants to the battlefields and away from there when a contestant qualifies or survives that round. And they will serve as distractions to the law enforcement like the police and a SWAT team that will pop up in the story. I would have some members driving around the battlefields in the ATV vehicle from Twisted Metal: Head-On and have their own weapons like a machine gun or rocket launcher to try to protect themselves. They are distracting the law enforcement so that there will be a winner in each of the qualifying rounds. There will be dozens of members of Apocalypse 9.
For Dr Zemu's role in the story, he will be the one modifying each vehicle for Twisted Metal. He will be the one designing each vehicle so that they can carry the signature weapons from the video games, the guns, missiles, explosives such as grenades, mines, and bombs. And he is also there for a secret project for Calypso.
My next post will focus on the rest of the non-contestants that will be opposing the contest. This will include Captain Jamie Roberts, Sergeant Carl Roberts, Agent Stone from Twisted Metal: Black and an unnamed police officer who may or may not have been a contestant in the Twisted Metal video games.

Title: Re: Twisted Metal TV Show story ideas
Post by TrentMendez on 04/11/20 at 01:12:36
Hello again. I am going to be focusing on the law enforcement figures of this version of Twisted Metal in this post. They will not be competing in the tournament. Here are the ones opposing the contest, Captain Jamie Roberts, Sergeant Carl Roberts, Agent Stone from Twisted Metal: Black and the unnamed police officer.
Carl Roberts will be based in Los Angeles, California and is the sergeant of the Los Angeles Police Department just like he is in the first game. One of his top officers will be the unnamed police officer who will have the initials R.C to stand for his name. Their story will begin a few months before the contest when they arrest Needles Kane and have him put in Blackfield Asylum. After capturing the crazed killer, Roberts will have R.C relocated to New York where he will receive his promotion.
In New York, R.C will meet Carl's sister, Captain Jamie Roberts of the New York Police Department. I will have a few months pass that will lead up to the Twisted Metal tournament. R.C will become a top decorated officer in New York just like he was in LA. To describe R.C's look in this story he is at least 6'2, real muscular weighing at least 200 lbs. and is African American.
Agent Stone from Twisted Metal: Black will arrive in the story after the first qualifying round of the Twisted Metal tournament causes many civilian lives to be lost in Midtown. He will ask for the assistance of Carl Roberts for his SWAT team to patrol nearby towns close to Midtown in California. And in the town Sunsprings, which is the second battlefield in the contest, they will be involved in the action when the second round starts. During this round, Carl Roberts will be gravely injured during the battle against members of Apocalypse 9 and the three contestants in this round. And those three contestants would be Twister, Pit Viper and Thumper. Seeing Carl get injured in the battle, Agent Stone will kill one of the contestants on his own and one contestant qualifies by killing the last remaining competitor.
Next, we will see Agent Stone go to New York to inform Jamie in person about her brother getting hurt in LA. Coming there unprepared without his SWAT team, the third round of Twisted Metal starts and Agent Stone, Jamie Roberts and R.C jump into the action. Here we will see Mr Slam, Hammerhead, Warthog and Mr Grimm. One of these competitors are competing in their second chance to qualify in the tournament. We would see a couple of the contestants get arrested by Jamie. R.C would notice one of the rendezvous vehicles that transports the contestants and he sneaks into one of them unnoticed and he will get transported to the final battlefield along with the qualifying driver.
I will focus on background stories for some of the drivers that I mentioned like Twister, Pit Viper, Thumper, Mr Slam, Warthog, Mr Grimm and Needles Kane in my next post. I will go at length for a couple of them like Mr Grimm and Needles Kane in their own separate posts. And one of these drivers will have a connection with Apocalypse 9.

Title: Re: Twisted Metal TV Show story ideas
Post by TrentMendez on 04/11/20 at 02:12:23
Here are the background stories for the contestants Spectre, Twister, Thumper, Mr Slam, Warthog. I will also include the brackets each competitor will be in and where they are battling at. Needles Kane, Mr Grimm and Pit Viper will have their own detailed posts at another time. Apocalypse 9 will be responsible for all of these competitors being made to compete in Twisted Metal.
The first bracket of contestants will see Needles Kane driving Sweet Tooth, Chuckie Floop driving Spectre and Mr Grimm driving his motorcycle to battle each other in Midtown at the Freeway location. Angela Fortin will drive Pit Viper, Amanda Watts will be driving Twister and Angel from Twisted Metal: Head-On will drive Thumper and they are competing at Sunsprings in the second qualifying round. The third qualifying round has Mike & Stu driving Hammerhead, Simon Whittlebone driving Mr Slam, Cage from Twisted Metal : Black driving Warthog and Mr Grimm, who failed to qualify the first time, competing at Metro Square in New York.
Apocalypse 9 will have already gotten Mike & Stu to compete after they bail the duo out of jail. Chuckie Floop will have his story from Twisted Metal: Head-On where he wins a car from a radio contest that will be set up by Apocalypse 9 to get him to compete in the tournament. Twister will be entered in the contest after winning a fixed race against members of the group posing as racecar drivers with the winner getting a mystery prize which is competing in the tournament. And Angel is entered after another rigged  contest by Apocalypse 9 is made to find another competitor.
Simon Whittlebone would be entered after getting arrested for demolishing another architects project out of jealousy with a frontloader vehicle that he steals from a construction worker after shooting him. I would want the construction worker to be Buster Cobb from Twisted Metal 3. This is where he would try to go on a rampage before getting arrested by the NYPD led by Jamie Roberts.
Cage will be someone who actually turns himself in to the police. He spent 12 years killing others and had remorse for his actions. But this changed after learning of Needles Kane and his killing spree. He saw the attention Needles got and was even more jealous that Needles was getting the death sentence, unlike Cage who was going to spend life in prison. This would set off Cage on a killing spree in prison and the only thing he wanted was to kill Needles himself. He would then get himself freed after his killing spree in prison and then found by Apocalypse 9.
I will focus on Angela Fortin, Needles Kane and Mr Grimm in their own posts. This will continue with Angela Fortin next.

Title: Re: Twisted Metal TV Show story ideas
Post by TrentMendez on 04/11/20 at 02:55:09
Here is the background story for Angela Fortin, the driver of Pit Viper in this version of the Twisted Metal TV show. I want her to be a double agent where she is a member of Apocalypse 9 and a member of the FBI. She is hired by Agent Shepard from Twisted Metal: Head-On.
Her story begins when she is recruited by Agent Shepard to infiltrate the secret group Apocalypse 9 who have gained a big gang following. It's only after she becomes a member of Apocalypse 9 that she learns of the group being hired by a mystery person which she would never discover. She is present during the process of Apocalypse 9 rigging contests for Amanda Watts, Angel and Chuckie Floop. And she was also there when they get Simon Whittlebone, Mike & Stu out of jail and when they find Cage after he breaks out of prison.
Her initial thoughts are that they are recruiting members to join Apocalypse 9. But her suspicions rise futher when they go to a secret base to steal prototype technology. The technology is for a secret project between Calypso and his scientist Dr Zemu. After stealing the technology the group would report to their mystery benefactor over the phone. It's here that the group learns of Angela's true story from their benefactor and they have her hostage and forced to compete in Twisted Metal and win it if she wants to be free.
I wanted Angela Fortin to be in this because she was not seen in any other Twisted Metal video game. I feel like her background of being a double agent inspired the stories of other characters like Agent Shepard who only wanted to have Calypso brought to justice. And she is one of the originals of the series. I will continue with the background story for Mr Grimm or Needles Kane next.

Title: Re: Twisted Metal TV Show story ideas

Here is the background story for Mr Grimm. In this version of Twisted Metal Grimm will be human. This would see him as a stuntman and caring for his sick brother. They are both from Midtown.
Mr Grimm is a struggling stuntman trying to help his brother who has the disorder acromegaly. It's a disease that caused enlargements in his brother's body making him larger than a normal person's body. His disorder causes a tumor to form in the body that is too large to operate on. His brother is at the end of his life. Grimm's work hasn't met his financial needs either. He's grown more frustrated and upset that his brother is dying.
After one of his work days is finished he's scouted by the group Apocalypse 9 posing once again as people hiring him for stunt work that will give him the money to help his brother. He's told that the work will last a week, which is the length of the Twisted Metal tournament, and he will be expected to show up days before the first day of the competition. After meeting them in Midtown he is drugged by the group and sent to the first battlefield. And when he awakens, he will see his competitors Chuckie Floop and Needles Kane.
I based this interpretation of the Grimm brothers off of the two main characters from the book "Of Mice And Men" with Mr Grimm being George and the little brother being Lennie from the story where George had to care for Lennie since Lennie was incapable of being by himself. I wanted to have another human character origin for Mr Grimm. My favorite is the Twisted Metal: Black interpretation of Mr Grimm and inspiration came from that. And at one point will Mr Grimm will get his signature skull helmet and that will be a crucial point that happens at the end of this story. My next post will focus on Needles Kane.

Title: Re: Twisted Metal TV Show story ideas
Post by TrentMendez on 04/12/20 at 06:05:34
Hello. Here is the post focusing on Needles Kane's TV storyline. I will break it up in two parts. This will mainly focus on when he gets arrested before the tournament. Needles will have his head on fire which I will get to at a different time. That will be after I will have him advance in the tournament.
It will be the year 2023, it will also be the year of the first Twisted Metal contest. Needles has been on the loose murdering dozens in California. The L.A.P.D are in a car chase pursuing Needles Kane in his ice cream truck, Sweet Tooth. Sergeant Carl Roberts leads this car chase along with his officer R.C and they manage to capture Needles after a lengthy car chase throughout Midtown.
Needles will be sent to Blackfield Asylum. Here he will spend three months here as evidence racks up against Needles for his string of murders as he spent years murdering people in one state after another. He had been traveling through out the U.S in his ice cream truck killing innocent people. It's decided that he will get the death penalty for his crimes.
I would have the execution happening at the Asylum. It's right here that Apocalypse 9 shows up and they start a riot to free Needles. This is where I would have Needles go through the Asylum like he does in Twisted Metal: Lost's Sweet Tour mode where he is in a cage that is being lowered and he will go through the Asylum and starts killing guards, inmates and a couple members of Apocalypse 9.
Apocalypse 9 will attack the guards with their own guns and go through the Asylum trying to find Needles who had went on his own killing spree throughout the Asylum. Needles will go around the Asylum retrieving a machete of his and starts killing people like he does in the hospital scene from Twisted Metal (2012) when he was looking for his daughter Sophie.  Eventually Apocalypse 9 will locate Needles and instruct him to follow them to leave. Needles refuses as he wants his ice cream truck back first and he kills a couple of the members until they finally agree to get his truck with him.
Next, they will go to the impound lot and the guards are still after Needles and Apocalypse 9. There would be dangerous trap zones where the guards and Apocalypse 9 members get caught in killing them like the metal grinder in the area of the impound lot in the Sweet Tour mode. Finally, they locate his truck and escape the Asylum. After getting to safety, Needles has his sight on the cop R.C for putting him away. Apocalypse 9 then tell Needles that he will have to compete in Twisted Metal to get his wish. They tell Needles that R.C has been relocated to New York. Needles accepts the invitation to compete in the tournament.
I will go through the results of each round in the tournament and expand on the story of Needle next time.

Hello everyone. I will be giving the results of each qualifying round and who will win. I will go into detail for the story as well. Now I will begin.
It's October 2023 and it is the first year of the Twisted Metal contest. The winner will be granted any wish they want. The first qualifying round begins the contest with Sweet Tooth vs Spectre vs Mr Grimm!
These three competitors battle at Midtown at the Freeway location. Every contestant is drugged and placed into their own vehicles and we see their point of view as they awaken and see their own personal dashboards have a monitor displaying the other contestants and rendezvous points they must reach in order to be taken to their next battlefields. They get their cues to begin seeking the other competitors when members of Apocalypse 9 in their own personal ATVs derail a train off of its tracks starting the mayhem to ensue.
Needles first spots Mr Grimm and begins his chase after him. The police who were headed to the sight of the crashed train see the infamous ice cream truck and report it. Apocalypse 9 shoot off a couple of warning shots leading the police away from the competitors as they start to fight. Grimm begins his escape and nearly gets sideswiped by Chuckie Floop in his car. Needles starts to accelerate faster as he now sees both of his competitors. Needles unloads a flurry of gun  shots from his vehicle at both men. Grimm using his experience as a stuntman sharp turns away from the gun fire and Chuckie gets his car pelted by the bullets as he tries to swerve away from the psychotic clown.
Grimm stops and panics about the situation he is in realizing he was lied to by the group who had hired him for stunt work. Police drive by and spot him so Grimm has no choice but to evade the police and kill one of the other men. Needles still pursuits Chuckie and gets t-boned by a police vehicle giving time for Chuckie to get far away from Needles for a moment. Needles then fires a missile from his truck at the cop car that wrecked into him and kills the officers inside it and laughing at the death he just caused.
Grimm sees the grenades in his sidecar and drops one behind him to blow up the cops following him. Chuckie spots Grimm again and sees the button for a missile to launch at Grimm but misses his shot. Grimm gets to a spot circling a building to get behind Spectre and starts lobbying grenades at his enemy.
This would bring Spectre to a stop and Grimm thinks he has this round won. Out of nowhere comes gunfire hitting Chuckie inside it and Needles drives by to stop by the car examining Chuckie. He laughs and drops a grenade inside it for good measure to ensure Chuckie's death. Needles has qualified and drives away to his rendezvous point. Grimm being shocked causes the police again to spot him and the chase is on again for him. Grimm is going to have to head to his rendezvous point to stay in the contest. He still had a missile he never used and he shoots at a building in front of him to cause debris to fall behind him cutting the cops path off to catch him and Grimm makes it to his escape.
Needles Kane has won the first qualifier! Mr Grimm now has his second chance to continue his journey in another qualifying round. The next battlefield will be Sunsprings for Pit Viper vs Twister vs Thumper!

Two days pass after the first qualifying round from Midtown in California. The incident there is seen as a tragedy as many lives were lost because of the chaos brought on by Apocalypse 9 and the first three contestants. Our next location is now in Sunsprings.
We go to Sergeant Carl Roberts as he sees the newscast of the aftermath. It's seen as a big gang attack by Apocalypse 9 and in comes Agent Stone from Twisted Metal: Black. He informs Carl he's brought in to assist in looking for members of Apocalypse 9.
They discuss their feelings among themselves of what happened. Carl remembers the time Needles was arrested and thought things were going to be better in his city. Stone kind of thinks otherwise as he believes that they should have killed Needles on the spot. Carl disagrees but remained silent. Both men patrol the town of Sunsprings in their own vehicles, Carl driving his cop car and Stone driving his armored SWAT van.
Apocalypse 9 arrive in Sunsprings and drop off the unconscious competitors inside their own vehicles. Amanda Watts driving Twister, Angel driving Thumper and finally Angela Fortin, the double agent for Apocalypse 9 and the FBI driving Pit Viper will battle in this second qualifying round! All three awaken and Apocalypse 9 start the round after firing a rocket launcher at a nearby water tower in town. The tower collapses as Carl and Stone see this from a distance and spot the gang in their ATVs.
The three competitors now have to fight. For Angela it's personal as she starts to go after the Apocalypse 9 members while Amanda and Angel chase after each other. Angela Fortin decided to fire a missile at one of the members but is accidentally bumped into by one of her opponents that the trajectory of her missile accidentally goes upward and hits a gigantic metal film reel that rolls down the street crashing into many buildings, parked cars and civilians. The reel finally gets to a stop and one of the victims caught in its path is Carl.
Agent Stone now goes into a rampage and chases after Angela in his van. Angela now cannot get out of this situation and must compete. Stone goes into this frenzy and mows down member after member of Apocalypse 9 in his van. He's not going to show mercy for any of them or the contestants believing they are all members of this gang.
Stone loses Angela as she made a successful escape using the grenades to her use. He then spots Thumper and Twister and goes after them. Stone catches up to Thumper and kills her. This now only leaves Angela and Amanda in this round so there must be a winner. The remaining members of Apocalypse 9 focus on Agent Stone seeing the threat he poses. Angela is able to kill Amanda and she qualifies to advance.
Angela Fortin is the winner! Stone is able to survive. Carl is in critical condition. Next up will be the final qualifying round in New York at Metro Square featuring Mr Slam vs Hammerhead vs Warthog vs Mr Grimm! And there will be an update on both Mr Grimm and Needles Kane leading to the final round.

We go back to Needles Kane. He is now being driven on his way to the final battlefield. His transportation takes days but it also leaves him time to reflect on his life with his father.
Needles was born as Marcus Kane to his father Charlie Kane. Charlie was proud of his son. Marcus loved going around in his own ice cream truck he purchased as his first vehicle to serve anyone. He had this joyful personality and it made him a role model. Someone who was kind, caring and friendly.
Marcus was helpful to anyone as well. Charlie Kane suggested Marcus to try to help with a local church. Marcus liked helping others but felt no other purpose as he was lonely most of the time. Marcus took his fathers suggestion to help with a church and meets a preacher.
Things seemed to be okay with Marcus learning about religion and even saw his own name shown in the Bible as a person to be polite and shining like he could have his personality to be reflective on others. But, his mind was complicated as he went on to read the Bible further and see these things in it that was contradicting. This is when he decided to go see his preacher to ask questions and saw with his own eyes an unspeakable act that Marcus was appalled to see his preacher do.
Marcus was now having to live with what he saw. He decides to tell his father and questions him why would their preacher do something so terrible. Marcus is conflicted. He seeks out others help to cope. He meets a man that wants to help him. His name was Mr Ash.
Mr Ash was from a different religion. Marcus tells him of what he saw his preacher do to someone else. Mr Ash tells Marcus that his religion is very different and that his Bible does not condone the type of act the preacher did. Marcus felt more complicated in his own mind after this revelation. But he decides to go further in Mr Ash's Bible.
Going further to study the two different religions had driven Marcus into this crazed mindset. Why the preacher did what he did. Why his father had this blind midset of his own being naive to believe that it could lead Marcus to something better. But now Marcus's mind was at his worst. And Mr Ash had opened his eyes.
Charlie Kane was expecting a second child, a baby boy. Marcus did not want his unborn sibling to live in a world that needed fixing. Something he felt a responsibility to do. Marcus had visited the preacher again and kills him. Marcus would then hide the body in his truck.
Marcus would take the body to Mr Ash to show him. He was proud of Marcus. Marcus was proud of himself as well. Marcus wanted to have something that would symbolize his good nature he believed he had like how his name was said to be something shining. Mr Ash would have Marcus be part of a ritual and his head would be lit on fire to symbolize that trait in the Bible.
Charlie found out what Marcus did. He was ashamed of what his son had done and Charlie blamed himself as well. He didn't want the guilt to turn in his own son. Marcus had pushed his father away and he would leave with his wife and unborn baby. Marcus was now upset. He would decide to try to find his father but to no avail. This drove him on his murderous rampage looking for his parents and baby brother. He saw his father as responsible for how his life is now. This would lead into how he finally got arrested.
I will continue with final qualifying round.

Title: Re: Twisted Metal TV Show story ideas
Post by TrentMendez on 04/15/20 at 07:37:29
We are now on day five of the week of the Twisted Metal contest. Two days had passed from the second qualifying round and we are now in New York. Here we have Captain Jamie Roberts of the New York Police Department. Agent Stone is here to give an update on her brother Carl. We also see the police officer R.C, the one who arrested Needles Kane.
Jamie is grieving over her brother being injured back home and wished that she never left. R.C and Stone try their best to comfort and have her mind put at ease. They don't know if it can be safe for anyone to go to California except emergency personnel.
Apocalypse 9 arrive at Metro Square with the contestants once again being dropped off already in their vehicles. Mr Slam vs Hammerhead vs Warthog vs Mr Grimm is about to happen! Mr Grimm knows that he can't mess up again. He's doing this for his brother who is dying. Apocalypse 9 fire at the Statue of Liberty and the round begins!
Jamie hears on her radio of the Statue of Liberty being destroyed. Stone is reminded of what happened at Sunsprings and he hears that the suspects are men driving ATVs near Metro Sqaure. Stone realizes that it's Apocalypse 9. Stone then asks for the Jamie's help as he does not have his SWAT team with him at all this time. Jamie, Stone and R.C jump into action.
Grimm goes to find his competitors and realizes himself of the advantage against him this time because of the size of the competitors vehicles being a monster truck, a front loader and a makeshift tank. But he is not going to quit. Mike & Stu wake up from being drugged thinking that they had the weirdest dream that they stole a truck from a hunter, got shot at, got arrested and was bailed out by a dude they never met. Next, they see Cage who is driving Warthog in front of them. They question if that is the guy who freed them. But they freak out once Cage shoots at them and both go into hysterics about WTF is going on right now.
Simon Whittlebone then finds Hammerhead and Warthog who chased after Hammerhead. Simon manages to capture Cage in his front loader, rams it to the inside of a museum and slams Warthog through the ground where a subway system is underneath the building. Mr Grimm is being chased by the police since he gets recognized as being the individual driving  his motorcycle in Midtown on the first day of the contest.
Police focus on Grimm and Whittlebone after crashing through the museum which takes away Simon's opportunity to finsh off Cage. Grimm escapes by going to a downstairs entrance to the subway system to make sure he isn't followed for some time. He will pop in and out of the entrances to the outside to take shots at his competitors and go back underground to get the best moment to take out one of the competitors.
Cage fires back at the police after he gets out of the subway system he was thrown into earlier. Mike & Stu still don't know what the hell to do even with the weapons at their disposal and they get distracted seeing all the different types of stores like the toy stores and restaurants. And both men now just realize they are in New York once they see the Statue of Liberty. They are mainly here in this series to be comic relief.
Stone focues on Cage. Jamie focuses on Whittlebone. And R.C handles getting people to safety. The rest of the police force focus on the members of Apocalypse 9. At one point R.C spots a suspicious armored truck at an ice rink. R.C leaves his vehicle to investigate. Nearby the damaged museum are Cage, Stone and Mike & Stu. Cage wins his gun battle incapacitating Stone. Hammerhead accidentally push a button that fires a missile at Warthog and flips his vehicle over. They think are they heroes for helping the police. This hesitation causes Whittlebone to catch Hammerhead in its lifter and it gets slammed repeatedly to the ground.
Mike & Stu bail out of the truck screaming for their lives since they don't want to die. They wave down a cop car and it's Jamie. She arrests both of them while Mike & Stu claim that they helped her. Whittlebone is still dealing with the truck in his lifter and inside the museum he is near the entrance by the opening to the subway system that was made earlier. Grimm drives up the makeshift ramp  and it launches him high up into the air and while airborne Grimm throws all of his grenades at Whittlebone causing a huge explosion killing Simon. Grimm has now qualified and he races to his rendezvous point.
Cage manages to escape his vehicle and runs off to safety and away from the scene. He survives the contest. Mike & Stu are being taken to jail. R.C then sneaks into the other rendezvous vehicle that Grimm did not go to and is also being transported to the final battlefield unknown to Jamie. The finalists are Needles Kane, Angela Fortin and Mr Grimm. They will finally meet their final competitor Minion and the man behind Twisted Metal, Calypso.

Hello everyone. We are reaching the finals of first Twisted Metal contest. We are having a small focus being placed on Apocalypse 9, Dr Zemu and Calypso.
This happens before the Twisted Metal contest and after Apocalypse 9 discover the truth about Angela Fortin. She was a double agent for the FBI and now she is forced to compete in the contest. This occurred after the group stole prototype technology called XJ-39. It's a vehicle with a helmet that could be able to read the wearer's mind seeing their fears and desires.
The tank and helmet are delivered to Dr Zemu and Calypso. Calypso is impressed with having possession of the vehicle but more importantly the helmet itself. He has other uses for it since he wants it to be duplicated and have other capabilities added onto it which requires Dr Zemu's expertise.
Dr Zemu asks Calypso what he would like done for it. Calypso explains even though he has supernatural power, there are some things he isn't powerful enough to perform yet. In the mean time, the helmet shall make due for him for the time being. This is to create a sense of wonder for what Calypso can actually do with powers that he required from The Devil in Hell.
Now Dr Zemu asks Calypso what they should do with the rest, like the tank and original helmet. Calypso wants to have it tested out in action by members of Apocalypse 9 in his contest. He wants to see how powerful the helmet could be and leave a foundation for his future projects and the type of uses for his version of the XJ-39 helmet.
Now I will focus on the finals of the first Twisted Metal contest next.

We are finally here at the end of the week of Twisted Metal. At an unknown location we see a monitor recapping the the tragedy in New York at its Metro Square location being destroyed by contestants and Apocalypse 9. We see Dr Zemu watching the monitor and notices another monitor showing Apocalypse 9 and the final qualifying contestant Mr Grimm reaching the final battlefield.
Grimm is released from the back of the armored truck and is directed to the battlefield by Apocalypse 9. Needles is then seen at a secret room  at the same place ordered to go the battlefield. Finally, we see Angela Fortin directed at gunpoint by Apocalypse 9 to go to the battelfield. Their history is still fresh among themselves.
All three competitors go to the battlefield one by one with introductions by Calypso, Sweet Tooth vs Pit Viper vs Mr Grimm! Needles laughs at his opponents and notices Grimm, who was one of his first opponents at Midtown and Grimm notices Needles as well. Angela is eyeing down Calypso as he's seen on a huge Jumbo tron at a seemingly dark location. Then, everything is lit up showing an arena with a circular track, ramps, a trap room with spikes on the ceiling linked to a pressure pad to activate it and a bulletproof glass window with Calypso and a group of women watching the action behind it.
Calypso then introduces their final competitor being lowered from an overhead elevator to the arena Minion! Angela recognizes the tank as the same one from the secret base she broke into with Apocalypse 9. Grimm is exhausted at this point knowing this is his third battle in the contest and being surprised at every turn in the contest. Needles simply laughs at the over the top theatrics by Calypso and at his opponents once again.
We go to another interior location at this underground arena with R.C. He leaves the truck he was inside of and goes around the area being on alert for any hostile threat. His radio is useless at this point and must rely on his own skills to get to the bottom of the situation he got himself into. We see him spot a lab in this place and sees different types of technology displayed in a separate room. The type of stuff he sees are the weapons like the missiles and bombs that were used in New York. And what catches his eyes are non weapons, a helicopter, a pair of robotic limbs and a huge set of tires like they could fit a monster truck but takes close examination of it and notices a couple of entry points like something can go into the tires and a small platform connecting the massive tires. Finally he spots a person and it's Dr Zemu. We see Zemu walk around with members of Apocalypse 9 and the scientist has successfully duplicated the helmets and sees them walk into a different room.
R.C decides to follow the group into this room. He is keeping his distance and notices something else this time, a person locked into a room. R.C makes no noise as he only looks into the window with the person turned away from the door. The person stands up as if he senses someone at the door. They turn their head around facing the door and R.C who is frightened at the sight of the person's face as they don't have a set of lips or eyes, only stitch marks where the lips and eyes should be. R.C had accidentally let out a scream which causes more commotion down the hall where Zemu and his assistants went to and they retreat back to the noise was made.
One Apocalypse 9 member goes to investigate and notices the person dubbed No-Face pounding at the door. The member believes that's all that was causing the commotion but is then surprised by R.C who he has a brawl with and another gang member runs down to fight R.C. This second fight forces R.C to start opening fire at the other gang member attempting to rush him and the gunshots heard make Zemu radio in an emergency in the lab.
R.C ends up having to prepare for any member to burst into the door looking for him. This would result in R.C having a gun fight with Apocalypse 9 but eventually losing and being captured by the group and Zemu. His fate will be decided later.

Back to the arena, the action between Sweet Tooth vs Pit Viper vs Mr Grimm vs Minion is beginning! The only way to win is to defeat Minion. Angela Fortin wants to win so she can take down Apocalypse 9 and Calypso. Grimm needs to win to save his dying brother. Needles wants to win to kill the man who arrested him.
Angela starts unloading shot after shot at Minion but to no avail. Needles wants to eliminate his chances of losing so he focuses on Grimm. Grimm uses the ramps in the arena to his advantage to evade Needles and must rely on his speed to try to win. Angela is also having to escape Minion after her first attempt of offense failed. Suddenly, walls start to go up and down in the arena causing everyone's focus to be thrown off. At one point both Grimm and Angela team up on Minion and trade back and forth on Needles and Minion. Grimm then decides to try to bring the jumbo tron down on Minion. Angela helps shoots it down but it backfires as Grimm accidentally gets crushed by it when Needles had bumped Grimm back into the path of the falling jumbo tron.
This now only leaves Angela , Needles and Minion. Angela has no more missiles and decides to blow up Minion and Calypso who has been watching the action behind his bulletproof glass window. She flies off a ramp pulling the pins off of her grenades and hopes of killing her opponents. When the explosion clears Pit Viper is decimated with no sight of Angela being alive at all. The explosion nearly kills Calypso but remains his posture. Now Needles and Minion remain. Minion has been greatly damaged and wants to finish off the contest. He notices the trap room and with Minion being unable to drive , Needles pushes the tank with his truck into the room, drives on the pressure pad and watches, laughing , as the spikes crush Minion to death.
Needles Kane is your winner of Twisted Metal! Calypso then proceeds to congratulate Needles and to ask for his prize. Needles wants to kill the cop who arrested him. Calypso informs him that the cop , R.C was killed in New York during the bout with Mr Salm vs Hammerhead vs Warthog vs Mr Grimm. Needles still wants his prize and Calypso offers a consolation prize. Needles can kill the sergeant, the one who lead the chase that had him arrested, Sergeant Carl Roberts. Needles takes the offer and Calypso grants his wish.
The epilogue will happen next time.

Here is the epilogue. We will look back at the finalists of Twisted Metal, the competitors who were arrested, the victims of the contest and R.C.
Needles Kane is the first winner of Twisted Metal. He wished to kill the one who sent him away to Blackfield Asylum but is told that the officer was killed in action from the battle in New York. He gives Needles the option to kill the officer's sergeant and Needles accepts. Calypso thanks Needles for competing and tells Needles to come back to compete next year and he sends Needles on his way to California for his wish. Calypso is actually lying to Needles about the officer R.C being killed in New York. Calypso has that problem he wants to handle himself.
We are still at the arena and we see Mr Grimm still alive crawling out of the debris on top of him. Calypso instructs members of Apocalypse 9 to get him taken to a doctor immediately. Mr Grimm is kept with Calypso to be healed and possibly experimented on. Calypso wants to honor Grimm for his display in the contest and knows that he can't let a man with his talents to go away.
Next, we go to R.C. He was captured after infiltrating Dr Zemu's lab. R.C is met by Calypso and is told that he can never leave now. He wants R.C to be a new volunteer to test out his modified XJ-39 helmet which has mind controlling capabilities now. He will be the guinea pig testing out Dr Zemu's prototype vehicle, Axel.
We return to New York with Jamie Roberts and Agent Stone. News reports keep coming in tallying up the number of civilian lives lost from the contest in California and New York and with a report saying R.C had gone missing in action. Mike & Stu are still in hold up for being a part of the action in the contest. Their fates will be determined. Jamie is distraught as she sees a report discussing the ones who were injured from the contest which included her brother Carl. Stone pleads to Jamie to go see her brother in California.
We then go to California. But not with Jamie, instead with Needles. He's here to kill Carl Roberts as he was the one leading the police force that lead to his arrest. Needles crashes into the hospital entrance in his truck with a couple of members of Apocalypse 9 that he manages to have them help him in this. Needles finds Carl helpless in his hospital bed as he drives his machete through Carl's chest and repeatedly drives it to his chest over and over again while laughing.
Needles starts to leave but notices something at the corner of his eye and spots another man in his own room. Needles goes inside and he sees this man who is unusually large and very sick. He looks at some decorations in the room and on a shelf he spots a portrait. The portrait is of this man and someone in a motorcycle outfit. The man in the motorcycle outfit is Mr Grimm and his sick brother are in this picture. Needles comes to the conclusion that this man in the bed is Grimm's brother. He orders his new henchmen to take this man with him so they kidnap Grimm's brother.
I will be leaving this off right here as the end of the first Twisted Metal. I will continue this with the buildup to the second Twisted Metal contest. I will reveal the fate of Grimm's brother and how it will haunt his older brother Daniel. I will also introduce Agent Shepard in the buildup as well. Cage will be returning as well since he never died in the contest.
My decision on the character R.C being Axel is done because of the fact that Axel was never given a full name in any of the Twisted Metal games at all. I wanted to take advantage of that fact and give him a nickname that is rather unfortunate to have because of his new fate with his mind being controlled by Calypso and Dr Zemu in this story. He is now this unfortunate victim of Calypso when he was doing his duty to protect others and he will now be serving Calypso against his own will. The name R.C comes from Twisted Metal :  Small Brawl  and the vehicles in that game being R.C cars. And how R.C's story ended here is based off of Axel's endings in Small Brawl and Twisted Metal Head-On where he is being controlled by Calypso in the first one and by Dr Zemu in the second game.
I like how I am having Needles Kane leave a haunting effect on nearly everyone he comes across. He kills Carl which will effect his sister Jamie greatly in a negative way. And kidnapping Mr Grimm's brother and what he will do with him will haunt Grimm greatly as well that will see him getting pushed to the edge in the second Twisted Metal. Needles does feel like this horror movie villain in this story as some of them like Freddy Krueger  and Michael Myers leave traumatizing effects on their own victims.
I will continue this story and I will introduce one character that I will reimagine in my own way in one of my next posts. Thanks to the people reading this.

Here is the introduction of Minion for the second Twisted Metal Contest. This will actually be the demon from Hell that Calypso defeated in order to be alive again and doing The Devil's work.
We will be located in Hell for this scene. We see a race going on with a few vehicles including Simon Whittlebone and Chuckie Floop and Minion himself. Chuckie gets knocked off the track the drivers are racing on. Simon and Minion remain in this race now and Minion knocks Simon off the track and into a pit below before crossing the finish lane.
Minion in his demon form goes to see The Devil. The Devil is Mr Ash. Here in Hell he is this large round man wearing a black undershirt, blue jacket and dark red neck tie. He congratulates Minion. Minion asks to have his powers back.
He pleads to The Devil that he is tired of going through so much without his powers and wants to be his top guy again. The Devil, Mr Ash, tells Minion he lost that right when being defeated by Calypso when he first arrived in Hell. He now sees Calypso as a top prospect as he gets more powerful. He was really impressed with the Twisted Metal contest as it  brought him many victims of the contest down to Hell. We would see members of Apocalypse 9 down here as and even some of the police force that were killed in action from California and New York from the contest.
Minion continues to plead and The Devil finally says yes. But under a couple of conditions, Minion will be human and he has to compete in the next Twisted Metal contest. Minion accepts. A lady brings a vial for Minion to drink from. This sends Minion to Earth to a grass field seemingly in the middle of nowhere and Minion's journey begins.
This interpretation of Minion is based off of the Twisted Metal 2 story for him. I will continue next time with an update of Needles Kane with Mr Grimm's brother or an introduction for Agent Shepard.
