RIPPER

You thought you knew him. You were dead wrong...

Story by Stephen Petrucha

The Ripper

Carver is trying to find his father. Too bad he isn't able to travel outside of New York. He lives at Ellis Orphanage with Delia and others. He steals a note in his file and it seems to be letter a from his father.

Days later it is an adoption day. Delia gets adopted by a rich family and Carver gets adopted by Albert Hawkings. Albert tells Carver that he has been chosen to be a Detective at the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Carver is excited.

Albert takes Carver to the base under a clothing store. An elevator takes them down. The agency has very intelligent people there and they made a jet powered elevator. They also made a steam-powered carriage.

Anyway, they get started on the ripper copycat. Every week a woman is killed. Each woman corresponds with a woman the ripper killed in Whitechapel. Carver starts to suspect that this really is Jack, and that is when things get crazy.

Hawkings starts to disappear and show up at the crime scenes injured. And when the next victim Carver suspects turns out to be Delia's rich guardian, he becomes confused because the ripper only targeted poor woman, not rich. He stakes out their house and is ambushed by Saucy Jack himself!

Days later, Carver is on a train back from Ellis Island from looking for info on his father. He sees Hawkings on it and on his way there Hawkings gets up, pops his back into place, peels off a face mask, and smiles. Carver realized that there never was a Hawkings, just the ripper. The ripper explains to Carver that he is his father and runs. Carver follows and they end up on the top of the train. Carver knocks off Jack the Ripper and he then falls as well. When Carver wakes up, he is gone.Carver ends up in the hospital and Roosevelt is there to greet him. They never found the ripper...
