Cleopatra Vs Frankenstein - Copyright October 2023, Cleaner Ocean Foundation






Having located the tomb of Cleopatra VII and Mark Antony, John Storm finds a heavy wooden box that was used to send messages securely between high ranking officials. As soon as he saw the scroll holder, he began to tingle all over.

Uncharacteristically, he forced the lock and opened the ornately carved box, made of lignum vitae. A cloud of sediment obscured his vision for a moment.

He saw a scroll made of what looked like parchment inside it. Incredibly, it was in one piece and soft to the touch, presumably being starved of oxygen had preserved the message.

He took out the scroll and very gently unrolled it. It did not disintegrate, or he would have stopped immediately.

He saw writing on it in Greek, Latin, and Egyptian languages. John could understand Latin, though he'd not studied the language formally.

It was a letter from Cleopatra to Mark Antony, written on fine treated vellum.

It read:

"My dearest Antony, 

By the time you read this letter, I will be no more. I have chosen to end my life rather than surrender to Octavian’s tyranny. I have taken poison from an asp that I hid in this box. I have also instructed my loyal servants to bury me with you in this secret tomb. I hope you will forgive me for leaving you alone.

I want you to know that I love you more than anything in this world or the next. You are my soulmate, my partner, my king. You have given me happiness, passion, honor, and courage. You have fought with me against our enemies until the end.

I want you to remember me as I was when we first met: young, beautiful, powerful, and free. I want you to remember our love as it was: pure, strong, eternal, and divine.

I want you to join me in the afterlife, where we will be together forever. I want you to take this dagger and pierce your heart with it. I want you to die with me and for me.

Do not be afraid, my Antony. Death is not the end, but the beginning. We will meet again in the realm of the gods, where we will rule as king and queen of Egypt and Rome.

I will be waiting for you, my Antony.

Your Cleopatra."

John Storm read the letter and felt tears in his eyes. His heart was pounding from a mixture of emotions, adrenaline enriched blood coursing through his veins.

He felt some kind of deeper connection with Cleopatra and Mark Antony, than from just reading this letter.

Somehow, he felt their love and their pain, taking him back in time to 30BC.

He felt their history and their legend.

He felt their spirit and their soul, as if being invaded by some mystical genetic bond.

Momentarily caught up in the tragedy, John unerringly played out the scene all over again as the male counterpart, as if fresh to Cleopatra taking her life - as if he were Mark Antony.

He took the dagger trancelike and held it to his chest. He said:

“I will join you, my sweet Cleopatra.”


Just then, a buzzer sounded on his diving rig, bringing John back from 30BC to the present day. He snapped out of his almost trance like state.


"What the." John shook his head, quickly put down the dagger, fearing the lapse of control he had just experienced, and wondering just how he had been carried away like that.


Incredibly, he felt a connection with the twisted skeletal remains of the great Roman General. An empathy, as if he were related by some means, making him feel part of the story rather than a simple observer. The hairs on the back of his neck stood up.









Cleopatra was a curvaceous, charming young woman with an extremely high IQ. She looked exactly like Cleopatra in her prime, and dangerously seductive. She had inherited her personality and talents as well. She was curious, adventurous, ambitious, and fatally attractive. She wanted to see the world for herself. She wanted to visit Egypt and see its pyramids, temples, and tombs. She wanted to meet other people and learn from them. She wanted to experience life and love, and find out about herself.













SCENE 1. Cleopatra's tomb lay lost for centuries. Then one day a shift in the tectonic plates triggered a tremor off the coast of Alexandria, causing alarm in Paris. (Flashback: The destruction of Thonis & Alexandria by a tsunami, sinking the great civilization and port in 365 AD.)


SCENE 2. As an agent of Blue Shield, John Storm, surveys Egypt's coast off Alexandria, finds Cleopatra's tomb, verified using the Ark and Hal, keeping location a secret, pending salvage and Blue Shield site protections.


SCENE 3John reads a letter from Cleopatra to Mark Antony from Cleopatra’s mausoleum, 30 BC, the combined suicide of Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra, a death wish love pact. 


SCENE 4. William Bates auctions his CyberCore Genetica nano-super computer. Secretly purchased by the wealthy Professor Krafenstein, via an anonymous sealed bid.


SCENE 5. A team of European scientists, including Franco Francisco, are gathered together and funded by the wealthy Baron as cloning technology champions, regardless of potential illegality or ethical consideration. Though, Replication and gene manipulations treatments are held to be legal by the cohort.


SCENE 6. As part of their human enhancement regime, ingredients of the CRISPR virus, a bacterial DNA Cas9 enzyme delivery system, that allows precisely targeted DNA enhancement in adult subjects, is developed as cousin technology. The team realise that this could form the basis of a cure for cancer.


SCENE 7. Charley Temple alerts John Storm to the consequences of the joining of dots of the technology that Professor Krafenstein and his partners are working on. She is being fed information from, and nurturing contacts at the ETH university in Zurich. With Sam Hollis being in contact with Colonial athletes in attendance. Some of which have given blood samples, in connection with the Baron's research.


SCENE 8. John is courted by Jack Mason, purporting to represent the USA, asking for his help in their investigations into cyber crime, and technology that might one day pose a threat to international stability.


SCENE 9. Storm is asked by Professor Krafenstein to relinquish a small Cleopatra tissue sample. The carrot is that their cohort will share their DNA archive, to add to John's collection. 


SCENE 10. John relents, persuaded by Blue Shield. The knowledge transfer (swapsie) proves to be irresistible to John.


SCENE 11. Having taken delivery of a sample of Cleopatra's DNA, Professor Krafenstein perfects his replication technique, after one or two costly mistakes.


SCENE 12. The scientists develop a prototype biological implant, an interface for the human brain, which they call BioCore™. This flexible microchip communicates wirelessly with the CyberCore Genetica, and from there to the internet. They are streets ahead of a system developed by Elon Musk, some years earlier.


SCENE 13. The Birth. Replication work proceeds, with Cleopatra grown and her brain programmed (conditioned) with her past, to include simulation of her synapse firing sequence, based on the fact she spoke nine languages, and was a mathematician and an accomplished political and military strategist. Other elements are included to soften the culture shock, as the reincarnated queen re-enters life in the 21st century, the prophesy comes true.


SCENE 14. John requests a visit to see the progress for himself, but is given the brush off, and shown a facility that does not seem to have all the equipment necessary to have recreated Cleopatra. Then he is denied access to the subject with various excuses, that do not gel. His suspicions are aroused, and he investigates further with help from Dan (hacking) and Hal.


SCENE 15. Charley persists with her own investigations, agreeing to meet with John, where she thinks the real work is going on convenient to the ancient port of Genoa, Italy. She is captured, and John has to effect a rescue, with some background help from the CIA's Jack Mason. During the struggle to overpower Charley's captors, John is injected with an experimental CRISPR virus. Dan manages to make off with the CyberCore Genetica and Biocore, equipment, plus a download of all the experimental files. Jack Mason turns a blind eye, at the time, biding his time.


SCENE 16. From the recovered data, Dan and Hal work out that Cleopatra is being repatriated in a secure facility in Rome, where the former queen had visited with Julius Caesar in 46BC. John raids their sanctuary just outside the city, rescuing/freeing Cleopatra in the process, with Interpol questioning all the wrong people, on suspicion of kidnap. Cleopatra expresses a wish to be with John Storm, who she instinctively trusts implicitly, leaving Interpol and Blue Shield, little choice in the matter. And Jack Mason with a problem. He was hoping to acquire Cleopatra in all the confusion. But Cleopatra reveals that Dr Krafenstein had given her, her freedom. She was free to leave when she felt ready.


SCENE 17. Jack Mason continues to plot to part John Storm from the CRISPR technology, and kidnap Cleopatra on grounds of homeland security, looking to take control of the replication technology. As the US representative, he talks John and Cleopatra into the replicant queen having a check up at Uncle Sam's expense at a private hospital in Egypt, to coincide with the unveiling of the Cleopatra VII mummy exhibits in Cairo and Giza. Though a disingenuous ruse, Cleopatra agrees, just to please John. She is curious to see what her own mummy looks like as an exhibition of her past glory.


SCENE 18. Storm is double crossed by Jack Mason, who spirits Cleopatra overseas to the secure US facility at Guantánamo Bay. Way off the beaten track, and extremely well guarded. Such military location eliminating any chance of a rescue.


SCENE 19. Despite the obstacles, John rescues Cleopatra from Guantánamo Bay in a daring night raid.


SCENE 20 CIA, covertly try to terminate the Swann and crew, including Cleopatra, who is now a witness to their evils.


SCENE 21. John does a deal with US President Lincoln Truman, Jack Mason is chastised.







The cure for cancer is the Holy Grail of medical achievement, a Crusade that is within our grasp.
