Doctor Dockery should have the Duplication power. He kind of needs it, since he has only twelve hours and there are twenty four in a day. :)

Heck, for this scenario, you could have a villain clone Doctor Dockery and have him work with himself. The clone has only twenty four hours to survive...

 

Our Good Doctor Dockery should follow the Nursery Rhyme to the letter of his twisted intentions.

 

Hour One) The Mouse Ran Down. At precisely one o clock, Doctor Dockery releases thousands of rats into the city square. While this is happening, he kidnaps a pacifist reporter. Since there are 24 hours in a day, he has to commit each crime twice. More on this in a minute. (The trick: A mouse is a rat, and also a pacifist)

 

Hour Two) The Bird Looked at The Clock: At Two O'Clock, Doctor Dockery breaks into an Insane Asylum, and frees an insane villainess the PC's really hate. Simultaneous to this, he gives her the plans to burn down a major building in town twelve hours from now, and the equipment to do so. He also kidnaps an intern. (The Trick: A Bird is an insane person, and also a subordinate)

 

Hour Three) The Dog Barked at the Clock: Doctor Dockery now breaks into an animal shelter, and frees all the dogs, but no cats. He uses this to kidnap a man in the Animal Shelter who is having an affair. (The Trick: A Dog is an animal, but also a man who can't keep it in his pants.)

 

Hour Four) The Bear Slept by the Clock: Doctor Dockery breaks into a department store, and kidnaps the person in the accounting department who has done the most chiselling, and steals a number of teddy bears. (The Trick: A Bear is an animal, but is also a person who doesn't like to take financial risks)

 

Hour Five) The Bee Buzzed Round the Clock: Doctor Dockery now has reached Rush Hour, and oh is he going to use it. Doctor Dockery breaks into Traffic Control, and subdues all the workers. He sets all the B trains in the city to crash into each other, and kidnaps the head of the Transit Authority. (The Trick: A Bee is a hard worker, but also a subway line in most major cities.)

 

Hour Six) The Hen Pecked at the Clock: Assuming the heroes haven't totally failed by now, as Doctor Dockery has likely escalated to City's Greatest Threat, and everyone will be looking for him, Doctor Dockery will now kidnap the significant other of a public hero. If none of the heroes have a public id, he will choose a public figure whose wife has a reputation for being nasty. Simultaneous with this, Doctor Dockery will also rob the local Philharmonic, and steal a priceless Stradivarius, along with the violinist, so he can fiddle while the city burns.(The Trick: Henpecked means a man's wife owns him, and Fiddlesticks should be obvious)

 

Hour Seven) The Cat Ran Round the Clock: Our good doctor will now steal a Stutz Bearcat, a classic automobile and sports car. It was a symbol of the wealthy in the early 1900s. Owning one was considered prestigious. Simultaneous with this, he will also kidnap the woman who the dogcatcher was having an affair with. (The Trick: The Bearcat provides a new crime for hour sixteen, as it is both a bear and a cat, and the woman would be linked to the phrase "Seeing a dog about a cat" which not only informs the affair, but also the nursery rhyme.)

 

Hour Eight) The Horse Jumped Over the Clock: Doctor Dockery now steals a prime candidate to win the next big horse race, saddle and all. He then kidnaps a Baker, and orders him to bake a cake while he holds his other hostages. (The Trick: Getting a horse to eat cake is a trick in itself, however, Doctor Dockery has a nasty plan for later.)

 

Hour Nine) The Cow Danced Round the Clock: Doctor Dockery now steals a milk truck with a cow on it. He's not really interested in building a barnyard, and he needs the milk for later. He kidnaps the driver of the truck as well, and adds him to the list of hostages. (The Trick: The Dancing Cow should be the name of the milk company, and no one could feel "finer" than the driver of a milk truck.)

 

Hour Ten) The Pig Oinked at the Clock: Doctor Dockery now kidnaps two police officers who are off shift, at precisely Ten. He blows up their police cars, and generally leaves a wake of destruction behind him. (The Trick: "Pig" is negative slang for a police officer, and after blowing up the city's subway system, holding a couple of cops hostage is really no problem for the Doctor. In this case "He did it again" refers to him committing the same crime twice.)

 

Hour Eleven) The Duck Quacked at the Clock: Doctor Dockery breaks into a Movie Theatre, and kidnaps the projectionist before the final credits roll. He steals the film, too! (The Trick: A duck is the scene after the credits. Duck is also called out by angry moviegoers when the person in front of them is much too tall.)

 

Hour Twelve) The Mouse Ran Up the Clock: Doctor Dockery now issues his ultimatum, since he now has twelve hostages. Plus, he has to wait an hour for the mouse to run down.

 

"Ladies and Gentlemen of our fair city! For the past twelve hours, I have run you and your miserable superheroes ragged. If I am not delivered the following chemicals necessary to construct an electrolytic proton/gluon bath within twelve hours, all of these people will die. I will kill one per hour until my demands are met. I would say "Bwah ha ha ha ha," but I would very much like my clone to live. The question is whether or not you want these people to die. Time's a wasting...(Evil Chuckle)

 

Hour Thirteen) Doctor Dockery throws the pacifist off a clock tower.

 

Hour Fourteen) The Insane Villainess attacks the building to burn it down. Unfortunately, extra bombs secretly planted by the Doctor will kill her, too. Can the PC's save their crazy, murderous nemesis? Should they? If they do, will they have to save Doctor Dockery from their nemesis?

 

Hour Fifteen) Doctor Dockery throws the man having the affair to savage, angry, starving dogs, thus completing the nature of the trick.

 

Hour Sixteen) Doctor Dockery puts the Accountant into the Bearcat and drives him into oncoming traffic full tilt by remote.

 

Hour Seventeen) Doctor Dockery puts the Transit Authority worker on a bus, loading him up with explosives. It should be just about time for the earliest of morning rush hours.

 

Hour Eightteen) Doctor Dockery destroys the throat of the violinist with her own fiddle stick, and leaves her body in the chicken aisle at the supermarket.

 

Hour Nineteen) The woman who was having the affair will now be forced to run around a city block. If she stops moving, she explodes. Whoops!

 

Hour Twenty) The good doctor kills the baker and delivers him in a horse shaped cake to a bakery. Four hours to go.

 

Hour Twenty One) The Doctor delivers the Milkman's dead body to the dairy from whence he came.

 

Hour Twenty Two) The Doctor sets up the two police officers on explosive platforms at each end of the city, and challenges the heroes to save them both simultaneously, or else.

 

Hour Twenty Three) The Doctor kills the projectionist and films it, sending the film to the movie theatre that he kidnapped the projectionist from.

 

Hour Twenty Four) The Doctor awaits his ultimatum. If the PC's still haven't found him, or delivered the ransom, his clone dies.

 

Have a good time.

Re: Not a Dream, Not an Imaginary Story!

 

The clock struck one,

he planned his fun.

 

(But if I told you his secret plan, it wouldn't be a secret!)

 

The clock struck two,

and he struck too!

 

(Taking out the security system and the guards quickly. Don't you wish you knew where?)

 

The clock struck three,

the lab mice are free.

 

(Has he joined PETA? Do the mice carry plague? Does he control them and plan to use them as his mini-minions? So many question!)

 

The clock struck four,

he's out the door.

 

(And far away as now, two hours after his first overt move, law enforcement knows there's something going on and begins contacting animal control, calling and waking up research scientists who worked at the lab, and otherwise doing exactly as he expected.)

 

The clock struck five,

he took the hive!

 

(The chief of police gets involved as it is confirmed that not only did some of the missing mice carry dangerous diseases, he took a hive of bees being bred for a special secret project for the Defense Department....)

 

The clock struck six,

he stole the flicks.

 

(All the security footage that might have revealed who did this and how - gone.)

 

The clock struck seven -

film at eleven.

 

(Reporters turn up at the lab...guess who tipped them off to the story?)

 

The clock struck eight,

is it too late?

 

 

 

Hickory-Dickory's at the dock,

His boat departs at eight o'clock.

The mice running 'round are healthy and sound,

He's got the infected stock.

 

Hickory-Dickory's at the dock,

His boat departs at eight o'clock.

He's very pleased to have the bees,

Their secrets to unlock.

 

Hickory-Dickory's at the dock,

His boat departs at eight o'clock.

He's things to sell, secrets to tell,

To some sinister power bloc.

 

Hickory-Dickory's at the dock,

His boat departs at eight o'clock.

The mice unharmed, the bees have swarmed

He notes while taking stock.

 

Hickory-Dickory's at the dock,

His boat departed at eight o'clock.

He missed his boat, and he's afloat,

Dead of anaphylactic shock.

 

 

Lucius Alexander
