Character profile
Villain – tall, slim well dressed. Grumpy, moody, cruel towards his butler. Not a very good villain. Never succeeds.

Butler – a robot, super villain built years ago. Happy, timid around the villain, keen to help, kind, gentle.

Candidate 1 – Burger Man. Large man, burger cap, carries ketchup guns and milkshake in a tool belt. Never speaks. Always has a burger in his hand, pays little attention to what is going on around him.
Candidate 2 – name??? skinny, clumsy, excitable, moves quickly. Outfit is homemade but badly done. Too short in the leg, poorly sewn. Believes he has a death stare but people actually just think he is odd and so walk away.

Candidate 3 – name?? young street smart boy thinking he is a gangster but still has to be home when his mum says so. Would take anyone on…except his mum! Wears a hoody and a scarf, trainers. Confident. Has tantrums – throws himself on the floor kicking and screaming – childish. Makes people run away from him. 
Outline plan:-
Super villain is hiring for new position as side-kick, as usual side-kick is going on holiday.
 Current side-kick “I need a break, I’ve booked a holiday”
Villain “but we’ve a got job coming up, what side -kick takes annual leave?
Side-kick leaves, suitcase in hand, dressed in shorts and Hawaiian shirt but still with mask on
Villain storms past butler making him spin round, and shouts “find me an apprentice”
Candidates are awful villains – clumsy, useless powers, no common sense,
Candidate 1 – fast food guy – super-power, ketchup guns, large man burger in hand all the time, milkshake in a tool belt. sauce stain down his front, cap is a burger. Does not speak
Candidate 2 – superpower – death stare, that does not actually work, excited, very skinny, clumsy – drops things, falls over, moves too fast, creased homemade outfit, too short in the leg, badly sewn.
Candidate 3 – child, hoody. street – smart, wanna be gangster. Super-power tantum – throws himself on the floor kicking and screaming reverbs people away. Steals stuff, has to be home by certain time as his mum told him to be in.
Interview / fitness trial – which they all do badly.  
Assault course –
-          Candidate 1 just stands there eating burger, walks through tyres but gets each one caught on his feet, so stops and eats his burger, drinks his shake.
-          Candidate 2 – slips over, gets caught in the net, runs in to climbing wall, hands just slip down the rope
-          Candidate 3 – “I’m the best at jungle Jim / park..i own it’.  Completes the course. Pulls out a knife to cut the net to free candidate 2. Falls after, cries “I got a boo-boo’ butler has to put a plaster on his knee and he gets a lollipop and a sticker.
Shooting range
-          Candidate 1 just stands there eating burger drinking shake, bullet from another candidate hits his milkshake which explodes all over him, he continues eating burger.
-          Candidate 2 terrible aim, almost shoots own foot loading gun, misses target, bullets flying everywhere. Swings gun around, everyone dives to the floor except burger man.
-          Candidate 3 very good, hits target plus others, including civilian targets that he not supposed to hit, then throws gun down and starts beating up / stabbing cardboard target. Villain has to go and get him, bringing him back by the scruff of his next / by his ear / under his arm.
At end of trial candidates all exhausted, muddy, candidate 3 says something, burger man pulls out his ketchup gun and squirts him in the face.
One has to be hired. Villain ponders applicants in desperation, talks to butler. In background candidates are getting in to further trouble. Conversation between butler and villain identifies that the boy scored the highest but his behaviour was the worse and he can’t be out after dark.  Offers job to child but he then says “whats the time?...I gotta go, my mums gonna kill me”
- candidate 2 is chosen.
 - candidate 1 wont fit in the car.

As they leave for the job the butler / caretaker / robot says to main villain “Feeling confident?.............
