SUMMARY:  The All-Awesome Squad meets with Benny Hill in London. He's a time traveler from the future as well. He explains that he's so rich that he purchased Liberace's time gauntlet, which he liked to use to visit the Court of Versailles. Later, in 2007, Dane Cook started buying up the routines of dead comedians, passing them off as his own. He got the time gauntlet from Hill's estate. When he found himself friendless and alone, he spent a lot of time smoking meth and watching the History Channel... and then travelled back in time to help Hitler win the war. But how did Hill get back to WWII?  He used his backup device: a time codpiece. Suddenly, Pvt. Whilikers races in, dying - killed by robot Nazis. The rest of the men are trapped on the boat. The All-Awesome Squad, with Benny Hill in tow, go off to avenge him and save the others.

Danger just isn't a hands-on-hips kind of guy. The death of Pvt. Anson Whilikers! 'That's the last man I lose to Nazi Robots!' Benny Hill joins the All-Awesome Squad! All-Awesome Squad! GET SOME AWESOME!


The World's Greatest Warrior, Captain Battle, is created through good ol' American SCIENCE!

Danger informs Pvt. Whilikers' twin brother Benjamin that his brother was killed, and Benjamin swears vengeance. As the All-Awesome Squad prepares for all-out, non-dance battle with the Axis of Jerks, Dane Cook freezes time. "Why would you pick a fight with a man who has a time machine?" Benny Hill unfreezes. "Because I have one, too," he says. "Looks like you'll have to have a fair fight after all!"

SUMMARY:  The epic battle commences!  Dane Cook and Benny Hill unfreeze their compatriots so that the battle may begin.  Hitler presents Dane Cook with the Sword of Sigfried, which confers invincibility.  It seems Cook may win... but the sword's power wanes after just one minute.  After all, Hitler wasn't going to give anybody ultimate power that lasts forever!  The Axis of Jerks summons Doomhilda, and all seems lost... but the Royal Consorts come to the rescue, defeating Doomhilda and all of Lady Lucifer's robots!  Hitler, Dane Cook and Lady Lucifer escape... and Hitler reveals that this battle was all a trap.  The robots were merely analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each member of the All-Awesome Squad.  Next time they meet, the robots will be invincible.  Meanwhile, Benny Hill says that he managed to synchronize his Time Codpiece with Cook's Time Gauntlet.  The All-Awesome Squad can now follow the Axis of Jerks throughout time.

SUMMARY:  As the All-Awesome Squad regroup, Lady Lucifer prepares her latest creation: the sexy and deadly G-Bots, whose speed will be enhanced with her new Speed Cream.  Meanwhile, the Squad, attempting to gain access to Lady Lucifer's lair, send the hapless Whillikers brothers to their deaths, tripping Lady Lucifer's various traps.  Captain Battle finally intervenes, triggering the final trap: a ray gun that devolves him back into 4-F weakling Pvt. Roger Stephens.  He is unaware of his transformed state... and of Lady Lucifer and her minions closing in on them.

In the Grip of the G-Bots! Sea-Man (Ryan Johnson) is feeling fabulous. "It's real simple!" Sgt. Dick Danger brings us up to speed on the story so far. Lady Lucifer (Erin Holt) shows off G-Bot Drei (Megan Alexis Stier). As the Whillikers brothers (Colin Willkie, David Mayes & Rick Steadman) stand by, Sea-Man notices a piano he's just gotta play. "They should have just killed him!" Captain Battle has been devolved back into Pvt. Roger Stephens (Corey Klemow).


The luckless Whillikers brothers are called upon to deal with Lady Lucifer's booby traps.
