Acmegeddon Part I
Secrets of the Guardian Strike Sword
Acmegeddon Part II is the thirteenth episode of the first season and the season finale.
Last time on Loonatics Unleashed, a new villain freed some of the Loonatics’ old enemies to plant a device in their headquarters. The villains defeated most of the team and while watching over them in Tech’s own jail made for Mastermind, Sypher stole Duck’s powers.
When the Loonatics are freed and escape, Optimatus takes all the villains he freed back to his headquarters with Duck tagging along for the ride. Zadavia then showed up in person to explain that the new villain none other than her brother.
Zadavia explains that her brother Optimatus will do anything to destroy Acmetropolis and herself. Ace then asks, “So chief, you gonna spill the beans or do we wait for Duck to end up as your brother’s main course?”
She answers, explaining she’s from the planet Freleng. She and Optimatus were born into the royal family, but Optimatus was had other plans to use his governmental power. Nobody found out his plans until the day he was a young man and announced to the council of Freleng that he wanted them to help him take over the universe. When the council refused to help him achieve his goal, his robotic minions took them hostage and Optimatus installed himself as dictator of Freleng. Fearing his sister would plot against him, he tried to capture her too, but she fought off his robots and Optimatus himself with her own powers. Ultimately she fled Freleng in a spaceship.
Optimatus was accidentally caught in the thrust as the ship blasted off, explaining his mildly mangled features. She fled to Acmetropolis. “I thought I left no trace for him to follow. I was wrong. Somehow, my brother found me.” It is revealed that Optimatus tossed the 2772 meteor that gave the Loonatics their superpowers. With the Loonatics planning on going after Optimatus, to which Zadavia felt his presence on an asteroid, she explains that they can use her ship to do so. Ace then looks at the ship and comments, “You been holding out on us.”
On the asteroid, Optimatus berates the villains and has one of his robotic troopers take Duck away. As the Loonatics speed to the rescue, Tech finds a gadget similar to that of the one the villains used on the Loonatics computers. Zadavia explains that her planet’s technology is universal and can be used to control any kind of technology. Optimatus then calls them and sends a taunting message that they’re about to meet their doom, then launches ships to shoot them down. When the Loonatics start to get overwhelmed Zadavia herself flies out of the ship to blast and throw the ships into each other with her own powers.
Zadavia is then zapped and starts to get dragged away by one ship. Ace tells the other Loonatics that they need to get out there into space to save their boss. The other Loonatics fly out in red jet-equipped spacesuits. Though they are able to take out a few ships they were not able to save Zadavia. Then their ship is shot down with Ace and Rev still inside. They’re all torn up inside at the demise of their leader until Ace and Rev come back unharmed. Lexi then hugs Ace with relief and Rev tells how he and Ace survived the wreck.
We then cut to Duck as he is held captive by Optimatus’ robots. Duck then escapes by tricking the robot into giving him a glass of water, then throwing it on the robot while it touches the electrified bars, shorting them both out.
Optimatus has his sister brought in to watch as he destroys Acmetropolis. The villains Optimatus had help him protest that he promised to let them rule it. They attack him, but are easily overwhelmed. Duck sneaks in and takes his powers back from the unconscious Sypher just before Optimatus sends his former accomplices back to Acmetropolis to await its demise. Duck, now with his powers returned distracts Optimatus from getting doomsday started, and wreaks havoc on his robotic forces. He keeps the robots busy long enough for the rest of the Loonatics to get there, and then Zadavia and Optimatus themselves start to fight.
While this goes on the Loonatics try and stop Optimatus’ new plan to destroy Acmetropolis. He plans on using a giant wormhole to send Acmetropolis to a location where the planet would be destroyed. Unfortunately Tech is too unfamiliar with Freleng’s technology to stop it. He then he remembers the chip Zadavia told him about that can be used to run anything, like Optimatus' computer. It allows him to stop the doomsday weapon.
The Loonatics keep the robots busy while Tech tinkers with the doomsday machine. As Zadavia wins the fight with Optimatus, the wormhole appears and begins to suck up the asteroid. The Loonatics and Zadavia escape in Optimatus' ship, but Optimatus is revealed to be onboard and attacks them. Ace blasts the villain with his laser vision, knocking him out. Zadavia then opens a wormhole that sucks Optimatus into a cold, remote part of the universe. Back on Acmetropolis, everyone starts to realize the world isn't about to end after all, including the villains. They figure the Loonatics sacrificed themselves to stop Optimatus and nobody’s left who can stop them from taking over the world. The Loonatics then appear behind them ready to stop them all before they start anything else.
