♪ ♪

Ladies and gents, Supes and civvies, rip up the history books, ’cause in New York this morning,

Godolkin University all-star A-Train was just drafted into La Siete.

Which of course makes the speedster the first African American on the world’s premier super team.

And so we’re thrilled to welcome A-Train to The Seven, which proves what we have been saying for a long time:

We live in a post-racism world.

Oh, my gosh. All praise be to God first.

Yeah, I just… I-I just want to remain humble…

First Black man in The Seven.

Hey, girls! Come look at this.

No, thanks, Daddy.

No, thanks, Daddy.

This is history.

[camera clicks]

Don’t smile.

I’m not.

You have to do it like Kendall.

He goes clubbing with Jake Paul and Scott Disick.

I will take whatever I can get.


[Annabeth] Use the 1977 filter.

[Marie] No, I’m using Lord Kelvin. That’s the good one.

A-Train’s the most driven kid I’ve taught since Queen Maeve.



That’s the best one! [giggling]

Delete it, Marie!

Delete it.

What’s the matter?

Um… I’ll be r…

I’ll be right back.

Marie. You okay?

Yeah, it’s just a stomachache.

You eat something?

It was probably your tilapia.




…cram it. [laughs]


And you, let me get you some Pepto.

Mm-mm. Really, it’s fine.

[departing footsteps]

[Homelander doll] I’ll always protect you.

[Homebanger] Guess you should’ve made your wife come, snowflake cuck.

[man] I should just get up and leave.

[pants] But you like watching Homebanger fuck me.

Move, perv.


[clock ticking]

[mouse clicks]

[gasps] Oh, my God!


[Vanessa] Wow. Guess I’m just surprised.

But I can go, right? I mean, it’s a full ride.

And I’m 18.


Wouldn’t be surprised if you ended up protecting a city one day.

I think you meant to say “first Black woman in The Seven.”

Well, I stand corrected.

[inhales deeply]

Look, Marie, um…


Most kids around here with a history like yours,

they don’t get adopted.

So they get sent to the Vought Adult Facility in Elmira.


I know.

I don’t think you do.

That place, it-it’s not like here.

You would be locked up.


But a-a God U graduate?

Um, you could… wipe all that clean and start fresh.

So don’t fuck it up.

Don’t fuck it up.

I’m never coming back.

[gentle music playing]

I’m super focused.

I’m super inclusive.

I’m super curious.

I’m super abled.

What kind of super are you?

I’m Dean Indira Shetty.

Welcome to Godolkin University.

We’ve trained the best and brightest young heroes since 1965.

But more than that, we’re a family.

A community of supportive faculty and peers who will accept you as the unique, culturally rich change agent that you are.

You’ll begin with challenging but meaningful core curriculum such as Hero Ethics and Understanding Branding.

Maybe you’ll make the top ten, too.

‘Cause I guess, like, he’s impossible to cut.

[music stops]

First of all,

you’re awesome.

I mean, wow.

Ranked number two.

Yeah, if you want Professor Brink’s autograph,

you got to buy his book.


No, that’s not why I’m…


There’s clearly been a mistake.

I-I signed up for Brink’s Freshmen Intro to Crimefighting, but it’s not on my schedule.

What’s your name?



[keys clacking]

Marie Moreau.

Oh, yeah, I see the problem.

You were rejected.


What do you mean?

I-I, like, quadruple-checked the forms.

Yeah, we just don’t have space for everyone.

No, but I have to take… Intro.

Everyone who majors in crimefighting takes Intro.

Look, most freshmen show up, they think they’ll major in crimefighting, crush their combat and forensics classes and score a city contract, but they won’t.

I mean, you’re competing with kids who have cleared homicide cases, who have over a million followers.

And you… [inhales deeply]

you don’t even have an Insta.

Now, I kind of got to get back to this.

Can I talk to Professor Brink about this?


I made the call. I’m his T.A.

Hold on. This was your decision?

Who are you to reject me?

[door opens]

His T.A.


What the fuck?

[Brink] [laughs] Goddamn, that’s the fastest draw I’ve ever seen.

Uh, gonna need to buy me a new shirt, Professor.

[Brink] [chuckles] Oh, hey, sorry, champ.

So, what do we got?


Ashley Barrett asked you to speak at the Vought retreat in Sun Valley.

Mm, hard pass.

Good Morning America wants to interview you about “how Brink’s technique with super kids can help with your kid.”

Tell ’em to read my book.

[Marie] I’ve read your book.

I’ve read all of your books.

I’ve already handled this, sir.

Sir, she…

I mean, he…

they… rejected me from your Intro class.

But they’re dead wrong.

They don’t know me.

That so?

[Marie] It’s like you always say:

“It’s not about the talent. It’s about the drive.”


And that’s me.

I could go all the way. I just… I just need the chance.

Performing Arts is a fine program.

You could be on Dancing with the Stars.

[door creaking shut]

[siren wailing in distance]

[young man panting]

[tires screeching]


[tires screeching]





What’s going on?!

He’s tweaking on meth. [panting]

He’s on the north lawn.

We need backup.


[Marie groans]


[grunts, panting]

[tires screech]

Let’s just… calm down.

[tires screeching]




I’m not going back to the fucking Woods!






[guard] I got him!


[Marie pants]

Hey, hey, who is that guy?!

[gas hisses]


[clacking, whirring]



[lock clicks]

Please don’t-don’t leave me in here.


Please, please!

[wailing] Plea…!

Godolkin is a safe space for you to thrive.

So then security just dragged the kid off?

So fucking crazy.

And you didn’t film it.

Kind of had other stuff on my mind.

Yeah, but you could’ve got a million likes.

I wish I got attacked.

Oh, come on. They live on our floor.

Hey, performing arts won’t be so bad. Just… try and make friends like a normal human.

[chuckles softly]

So, my guys at Innovative are sending me out for this limited series on Vought Plus.

It’s an elevated superhero thing.

Really a meditation on grief told through 70 years of sitcoms.

And Zach Braff is directing.

We’re friends, so… fingers crossed.

[Marie chuckles]

Damn. My manager only sends me out on broadcast, but…

Sorry, you’re Justine, right?

[chuckles] Yeah.

Okay, so I loved you in Pretty/Deadly and Babysitter School.

Um, so I’m Emma.

That’s-that’s Marie.

That’s so sweet.

Thank you.

And… [sighs]

I’ve seen you in something.

I did do a small reoccurring in Chicago Fire.

Burn victim.

No. Wait.

You’re Little Cricket.

Oh, my God.

You are so funny.

Holy shit. No, that’s right. Um…

[Justine chuckling]

Fun Sized with Little Cricket.


I’m a huge fan.

Your channel’s the fucking bomb.



And where have I seen you?

Uh, right here.



I got to go.

[inhales sharply]

[Emma] I’ll-I’ll see you guys around.


What’s wrong?

No offense, but this shit is very, very not me.

Okay, well, this shit is 90% of being a hero.

Marie, only five kids a year score a city contract.

The rest of us… sing and dance and sell merch for Vought.

But we’re superheroes.

That’s really what you want?

I can’t fight bad guys when I’m the size of a pickle, so yeah.

I mean, I’m also hoping for a three-way.


[Brink] You remember when we first met?

Chapter nine of your book.

I had to sit on a folding chair in your folks’ living room ’cause you kept burning holes in the furniture.


Shy little nothing that could barely make eye contact.

You remember what I told you?

You said that I’d be bigger than Homelander.

Did I?


Hafnium carbide alloy.

Won’t melt no matter how hot you burn.

No more showing your balls to America.

I mean, this thing is low eight figures, easy.

No one’s actually gonna pay for this.

New York already has.

They’re building it as we speak.

Would you rather take Maeve’s old apartment or Starlight’s?

Now, it’s gonna take the lawyers a… couple months to paper the deal, but you, my boy, are going to The Seven.

No draft, no nothin’.

It’s done.

We did it.

[chuckles softly]

Huh? [laughs]

[boy] [echoing] Luke.

[inhales deeply] You okay?


I’m great.

[indistinct chatter]

You lost?

I got it.


Those were some sweet moves last night. [whooshing sound]

I was coming up with your superhero name.

You want to hear it?

Bloody Marie.

That’s terrible.

Yeah, it is.

[laughing, sniffles]

Well, um… that skinny kid, did you… You seen him before?

The way they dragged him off was just fucked, right?

He was out of control.

Okay, Coagula.


Even worse.

I’ll k… I’ll keep workshopping.

I’ll show you what I come up with?


A few of us are going on a… field trip.

Off campus.

Golden Boy, myself, a few others. You should come.

[stammers] Uh, me?


Out with you guys?

I mean, that’s how socializing works, right?

We’d be breaking curfew.

If we get caught.

We’re not gonna get caught.


for the invite, uh, but no.

I can’t afford the trouble.

[clicks tongue] Well…

Crimefighting Building at 10:00 if you change your mind.

[Emma] Okay, this is me changing your fucking mind right now.

You have a chance to go party with Golden Boy and you aren’t sure?

Are you insane?

I think he has a girlfriend, right?

Yes, and she’s hot!

Oh, my God! You’re gonna have a three-way.

You are literally living my dream.

Then you go.

I wasn’t invited.

Marie, this is a huge opportunity for you.

And, much more importantly, for me.

Because if you get in good with those guys, that means I will.


You don’t understand the world-ending trouble I’ll be in

if I’m busted.

My dad is… really strict.

The point is, I can’t fuck up.

I’m gonna be jerking off about this the whole night, so if you don’t go, just be prepared for that experience.

And I’m loud as fuck.

I don’t… have anything to wear.

Please borrow whatever you want from my closet.

[hangers rattling]

[gasps] Okay.


You need to load up your legs with lube to get into these.

I’ll help you get out of them tonight.

How am I supposed to pee?

Oh, you don’t.

Like, literally never.

This is Marie.

Now I do.

But no.

[inhales deeply]

I didn’t even know I had powers until I was 12.


My parents gave me V as a baby.

But it didn’t hit till puberty.

Oh, they must’ve been excited.


It’s still the only thing my dad talks about.

Brags about it to all the guys at his pickup games.

[chuckles softly]

I’m sorry. Uh…

I’m lying.

M-My parents died.

I don’t know why I do that.

My brother passed away, too.

I’m sorry.

That’s, uh, why I’m here.

At this school.

For my sister.

I want to… prove to her that I’m not…

Can I give you some advice?

That you’re not at all asking for? [chuckles]

You’re not weird.

Well, that wouldn’t really work, ’cause, like…


[both laugh]

Yeah, obviously not that.

Well, you know, it’s not so easy for me to get little.

This woman appears. She saved the girl’s life.

Okay, sure, you’re the hero, but I’m the one who made you go, so in a very real way, I’m the hero.

Sorry for all the…

blood on your clothes.

Oh, God, worth it. [grunts]

Wait, so what did Golden Boy smell like?

Like cookies, right?


Like cookies and hope?




Marie, right?

Professor Brink’s office called.

He wants to see you.

You mean now?

And… just me?

I don’t know.

Also, I’m not your assistant.

Get a fucking phone.

[door closes]

Dude! He’s seen Instagram.

You’re in his class for sure.

…who will accept you as the unique, culturally rich change agent that you are.

Ah, Marie Moreau.

You saved that girl’s life.

Good for you.

Thank you, sir.

You know, kid, I’ve dedicated my life to studying superheroes.

Three masters, countless hours of research.

I think it’s safe to say that I know more about Supes than just about any soul alive.

And they are something.

But there’s one fella that’s got ’em all beat.

Fred McCallister of Scarborough, U.K.


Who’s that?

Just a guy.

Some powerless schmuck. [chuckles]

See, his old dog Arnold jumped into the ocean, and he started to go under.

So, Fred, he hopped into the drink and he managed to save his old mutt, but he drowned in the process.

And, see, that is what most superheroes, even the big ones, they just don’t get.

That being a hero, a real hero, is not about glory.

It’s about sacrifice.

You understand that?

I think so, sir.


[chuckles softly] Good.

[inhales deeply] ‘Cause…

And I can’t tell you how sorry I am to tell you this, but… you’re being expelled.


See, Golden Boy, Andre, Jordan, they’re going all the way.

They could save thousands of people.

But not if TMZ finds out that they almost let a woman bleed to death because they were high.

Somebody’s got to take that hit.

You get that.

Look, you saved that woman.

But, you know, you kind of slit her throat accidentally first.

And that’s grounds for removal.

Wait. Just… wait.

I-I didn’t. I…

You… you can’t kick me out.

Oh, I’m so sorry. I really am.

I… And I like you, for what it’s worth.

No, you don’t understand.

I can’t go back.

They’re gonna send me to this adult facility that…

Oh, you’re a resourceful girl.

You’ll figure something out.


I think you’re wasting your time here at G.U.

Those blood powers of yours, they’re a nonstarter in Middle America.

There’s no four-quadrant appeal there.

You’re wrong.

Look, honey, you get to save your friends.

Just like that guy in the U.K. [chuckles softly]

I mean, that is more hero than most Supes ever manage.

And that’s something.

What if I say no?

Good evening, students and patriots.

Let me personally assure you that the terrible news coming out of Godolkin University this evening

is in no way reflective of the institution as a whole.

Golden Boy’s death was an isolated incident involving a chronic drug user suffering a full psychotic break.

Remember that Vought News has selected Godolkin as the Safest Campus in America seven years running, and the faculty prides itself on creating a safe space for every hero to thrive.

Despite tonight’s incident, here’s a look at what students can expect from this esteemed institution in this upcoming semester.

If you’re watching this, guess things got fucked.

I’m sorry.

[indistinct chatter]

[Shetty] You could be the first top-ranked freshman in history.

For what?

For fighting Golden Boy.

Currently, we’re testing “the Guardians of Godolkin.” Even when I’m saying it now, it feels like it’s too many syllables, so we’ll see.

Figure out the rest later. Is The Woods part of what happened?

[Andre] But I found something.

Don’t say another fucking word about this.
