On Maple Street, we are introduced to residents. Then, a flash of light shoots across the sky over Maple Street.
This is all an mistake. I am innocent.
They curious why electricity isn't working. Also, they start to wonder what could of caused it. Then Tommy comes to them tellling them about there could be more than they would think.
It's Pete Van Horn!
You killed him!
It was an accident. I mean it's dark! I couldn't see!
After the meteor passed them all the electricity went off... nothing was working. They all wonder what is it. Steve was going into to town, but Tommy said not to go, for he said this is exactly what happened in all the comic books he read, that there are aliens lurking among them.
Yeah who doesn't want him to go?
First they suspect Les Goodman, for two reasons. One his car started by itself, and was the car that did that. Two a woman claims that sometimes she stays up late and she goes out on her front porch, and she sees Les Goodman staring up at the sky like he's looking for something, like he's waiting for something.
Then why did your car start?
Are you hiding something?
He must be the alien!
After blaming person after person, Tommy sees what he thinks is a monster in the distance. Someone gives Steve a shotgun, he says he can't do it. Charlie then grabs the shotgun out Steve's hand and shots. They crowd all rushes to the "monster," they then see it was actually Pete Van Horn, he was dead. They then all said it is Charlie who is the real monster.
In the end aliens did come, but instead of attacking they used technology to their advantage. One of the alien said that if you take away some of the electronics away they will go crazy and end up killing themselves. All the people on Maple Street killed themselves, because of this.
If you take away their toys they will destroy each other.
We will go to every Maple Street and destroy the people who live there!
