“The story so far… Grigori Rasputin and his 'fiendish followers' have been cornered in the dimension of the Ogdru Jahad by a band of heroes led by Lobster Johnson. Having already lost Federation Space Commander Travis to the fists of Moon Knight, the Mad Monk realises he must appeal to his mighty masters if the Dark Gods' latest nefarious plan is not to be foiled..."

“28mm ZTV2 Battle Report: Lobster Johnson, Molly Hayes, Moon Knight & Doctor Who Verses Rasputin, The Joker, Travis & The Grey Hulk - Act Two
The Fifth Turn of Act Two started with a “Continuity Error” creeping into the show’s filming, as the Weakened status marker on Rasputin was placed upon Molly Hayes instead. Inspired by this devious move the mad monk then utilized his Leader(2) Special Effect in order to additionally activate the nearby Joker without the need to spend a plot point, and charged into Lobster Johnson. A quick slash of the Villainous Star’s Crystal Knife and the New York City vigilante was down for the count. Cackling evilly to himself Grigori claimed three plot points on account of the Flamboyant Agent’s untimely demise and moved East towards the back of Moon Knight…
Sensing the approach of the silver-haired Timelord, the Clown Prince of Crime spun around and started to shoot away at Doctor Who with his Jokerfish pistols. The time traveller received a +2 to his defence because he was in Hard Cover behind some boulders. However that still didn’t save him from being struck by a bullet and getting wounded. Meanwhile the Grey Hulk continued to try and pound Moon Knight into the ground but found the Fist of Khonshu to be too fast for him.

The Finale’s opening saw the production team attempt to employ some “Colour Separation Overlay” into the scene and as a result Doctor Who was able to become Invisible (for the Turn). Using this Special Effect to his advantage, the Crackpot Inventor rather uncharacteristically charged into the Joker. But despite his punches counting as an ‘attack in the rear’ due to his inconspicuousness, the Timelord failed to land a solid blow on his giggling opponent. Having used her Hard Special Effect to remove the Weakened Status she received earlier, Molly Hayes used her Luck to overcome any Fear of the Grey Hulk and charged the Marauding Monster. A flurry of punches later and Bruce Banner’s alter-ego was not only Weakened himself, but wounded… and then knocked out by a well-placed blow courtesy of Moon Knight; the Fist of Khonshu had out boxed the Hulk!?!

Turn Two of the Finale allowed Rasputin’s cast to get a bit “Gung Ho!” and the mad monk used his “immediate move action” to charge into the back of a disadvantaged Moon Knight. Once again Grigori’s Crystal knife flashed out and yet another of the heroes fell to the ground… Sensing that victory was in his hands and that the Dark Gods would soon smile upon him, Rasputin then moved into (base-to-base) contact with Molly Hayes and savagely slashed at the little girl. However Princess Power was able to dodge the Villainous Star and look to seek her revenge upon him in the following turn. Meanwhile it was now all up to the Joker to dispatch Doctor Who with a fishy slap across the face and win the day for the baddies. Amazingly however the Evil Mastermind was unable to land a telling blow upon the time traveller. The battle was not over yet…

Turn Three saw “Fan Favourite” Moon Knight make a shock return to the show (with 1 Health) near to Doctor Who. Charging a speechless Joker, the Clown Prince of Crime wasn’t laughing now, the Fist of Khonshu socked the Dark Knight’s arch-nemesis in the jaw and then made a beeline for where Rasputin was menacing Molly Hayes. However just like that the programme was finished and the end credits started rolling.
Deciding that Rasputin would favour flight rather than tackle both the Strongarm Molly Hayes and the Action Hero Moon Knight, we decided to bring the “7TV2” game to a close and calculate the Victory Points. The despicable Villains received 1 VP for the Objective Marker taken by the Grey Hulk and an impressive 6 VP’s for removing both ‘The Lobster’ and Marc Spector (albeit he made a most welcome reappearance) from play. The Heroes on the other hand received a telling 4 VP’s for the Objective Markers which they acquired throughout the show and 8 VP’s for defeating Bruce Banner’s alter-ego, Space Commander Travis and the Joker; earning the Forces of Good and Justice a Decisive Victory, for now at least…
