END ANIMATED FLASHBACK / BACK TO PRESENT

INT. SKATE’S APARTMENT
Felix puts down the copy of the graphic novel.

SKATE
You wore your heart on your sleeve,
man. No shame in that.

Skate puts a hand on Felix’s shoulder.

SKATE
But whatcha gonna do, Felix? She
wasn’t feeling it. You had to know
that.

Felix is silent.

SKATE
Come on, man. You finished your
book. It served its purpose. Time
to put it to bed.

FELIX
I know.

Felix stares blankly at the graphic novel.

Skate smiles.

SKATE
You need to come out with me
tonight. Time to get you back in
the game, pimp.

FELIX
I’m not ready for that, ISKATE
No. You are definitely ready. A
night at The Thirsty Whale is just
what you need. I’m meeting my
brother and his boy at ten. You
need to be there, too.

EXT. FELIX’S NEIGHBORHOOD – DAY

Felix walks toward his apartment. He reaches his place, and is surprised to see GWEN knocking on his door.

FELIX
Gwen?

Gwen is startled. She regains her composure and smiles at
Felix. She’s holding a stack of letters and papers.

GWEN
I guess you really weren’t home.

FELIX
How long you been knocking?

Gwen steps aside as Felix puts his keys in the door.

GWEN
Not long. Twenty min-

FELIX
Tony send you? You can tell him
the script still isn’t done.

Felix enters the apartment. Stan Lee comes to greet him. Felix blows him off.

GWEN
Not exactly. I mean, he’s still
stressed about it. But I thought,
maybe you could use some
inspiration, and…

Stan Lee goes to Gwen instead. She smiles and bends down to pet him.

GWEN
…Aren’t you the cutest! What’s
his name?

FELIX
Stan Lee.

GWEN
Of course. Love it.

Stan Lee, happy, runs off into the other room.

FELIX
So, why did you-

GWEN
Right. Why am I here? Fan mail.
It’s been piling up at the office.

She hands him a stack of envelopes.

FELIX
Huh. Okay. Thanks.

Gwen hangs on to a few pieces of paper, hesitant to give them to Felix.

GWEN
And, I um- I wrote out some notes.
Just, they’re probably stupid, but
I figured I’d tell you what I’d
like to see happen in issue twelve.
You don’t have to-

Felix reaches out for the papers.

FELIX
I’ll take a look.

Stan Lee trots back into the room, his leash in his mouth.

Gwen smiles.

GWEN
Can I?
