X9 Pyramid Power

[G-II #9: The Impact of Pyramid Power]

A number of ships and airplanes have disappeared in the Mediterranean Sea. Mickey has been sent to investigate the area, and crashes his Bird of Paradise in spectacular fashion on a small island. He is found by a small girl named Cassandra.

Cassandra cures Mickey’s headache by constructing a pyramid around his body. She is using ‘Pyramid Power’ to do this. Mickey is surprised by this technique and talks to the girl, learning that her father works with pyramids (both physical and metaphysical) and lives on the island. Her father, Dr. Embry, appears, seeing Mickey and his daughter from a distance. Dr. Embry recognizes Mickey as an Eagle Rider and is not happy to see him there. Embry quickly takes his daughter and leaves, while Mickey returns to meet the rest of the team.

Dr. Keane has discovered that an exact replica of an ancient Egyptian city has been constructed on the island, and suspects that the Vorak are using Pyramid Power. Frankly, this is where I’m throwing my hands up in disgust. To have Dr. Keane lending this Pyramid Power idea credence makes me doubt the Doctor’s sanity. Kelly is skeptical too (Way to go, Kelly!) but Hunter assures her that if there’s even a chance that the Vorak have developed such a power, they must stop them. I guess he has a point, so I’ll go along with Hunter on this one, albeit reluctantly.

When the team reaches the island, they are in time to witness a lavish party thrown by Dr. Embry. Embry introduces his Pyramid Power to the scientific community, and explains how it will power his city. But as the demonstration is taking place, a huge Pyramid robot rises from its hiding place in a nearby volcano, sucking up all of the energy from the Doctor’s smaller pyramids. The ground shakes and the guests run. Cassandra falls and is hurt. Dr. Embry has somehow made it inside the giant Pyramid robot with Mallanox, and he is shocked to see his daughter hurt outside on the viewscreen. Mallanox threatens Cassandra's life, and Embry is angry. Seriously, what did this guy expect when he partnered with the Vorak? Embry begs Mallanox for mercy and when the Vorak Leader refuses, Embry grabs a gun and starts spraying bullets everywhere. Amazingly, this technique works long enough to allow Embry to escape, find the Eagle Riders, and tell them everything he knows.

It seems that the only thing that can defeat Mallanox’s pyramid is an even larger pyramid, but how can such a thing be found, and in time to stop the Vorak? Joe suggests that the Eagle Riders use their individual vehicles to do this. The team agrees, performing the Fire Eagle Maneuver, using their individual vehicles to create a fiery pyramid around the Vorak robot. The Vorak are destroyed, and the Global Good is defended.

Cassandra lives, but Mickey is angry with Dr. Embry, because he sold himself to the Vorak and endangered Cassandra’s life. Hunter pulls Mickey back from storming toward Embry. Hunter explains that a child’s love is a strong thing, and that Embry’s love for his daughter saved him, and therefore his actions should be forgiven. If you say so Hunter, but I’m not sure the judge will agree with you! But for now, the Global Good is safe.
