Takeena, to guarantee that she's the fairest of all, sends Crumummy to ruin the looks of all attractive maidens on Terra Venture. A stunner herself, she infiltrates the station to set about poisoning Magna Defender Mike. Scorpius, however, has an unpleasant surprise waiting for her back on the Scorpion Stinger, a cocoon by which to finally transform her into an immortal insect like her father. Written by
Did You Know?
Allusions are made to two stories with witches: "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" and "The Wizard of Oz." The former is reflected in a talking mirror and in a disguised witch (Trakeena) trying to kill a Snow White (Mike) with poisoned food (orange juice). The later is reflected in Wicked Witch of the West phrases uttered by Crumummy. See more
Tell me, mirror, who's the most beautiful girl in the universe?
[inside the mirror
I am Crumummy, and I can tell you what you seek.
Go ahead, then. As if I don't already know the answer.
Oh, YOU are the most beautiful - as well as a lot of other girls on Terra Venture, of course.
A lot of OTHER girls? You get down there and steal the beauty from every single one of them or I'll feed you to my father. Got it?
