OK, this is how it all started.

Four kids with nothing in common

got lost in a forest

and ended up in an alternate universe

where they were never born.

Bummer, right?

That was Felix's fault - my brother.

He discovered that hidden inside

some people are elemental forces

that can be used together

to create powerful magic.

Felix is a fire element.

He controls the living flame.

Andy is the brainiac of the group.

His element is water.

Sam is air -

in element and in nature.

Jake is earth.

Solid, dependable and normal...

sort of.

Then there's me - Oscar, the spirit

that holds everything together.

I have kind of magical visions.

Fighting demons and each other,

they finally found their way home,

bringing with them a magical talisman,

and discovering a secret lair

hidden in Bremin High School.

But who bum it?

And why is it there?

You're never gonna give up, are you?

Has to be a clue

in here somewhere.

- Too bad they didn't leave a name tag.

How can someone leave all this

but no clue of who they are?

Agh. I need more light.

Felix! Careful!


Lucky I'm a water element.

I hope those spells aren't crucial

to the survival of the universe.

Knowing my luck...

Even if we can't find the owner,

this is still the perfect headquarters.

- For...?

- The greatest magic group of all time.

Not sure if you've noticed, Felix,

but Jake and Sam are only interested

in themselves these days.

Yeah, and Andy's off

on some top-secret nerd quest.

He's barely even at school.

And without all four elements, no


They've just been busy.

I'll get 'em back. We're a team.

What if it's time for a change, Felix?

You're fire, I'm water.

If we find new earth and air elements,

we can form a new team.

And dump the others?

Technically they've already dumped you.

No-one's dumping anyone, OK?

- A secret compartment.

- In a secret compartment!

That's a lot of secrets.

A Book Of Shadows.

Ancient. Cool.

- It won't budge.

- Need some girl power?

Why won't it open?

Magically sealed.

Whatever's in there must be good.

Insanely good.

So, how do we open it?

This is just what we need.

Make sure you film me putting

the vanguardium into the magnetic field.

Andy, I know.

Where the ley lines intersect, there is

an increase in ambient magnetic fields.

The vanguardium acts as a sensor.

My research says this has to be it.

Your research?

This is it!

The camera!

My studies linking science and magic

will change the foundations

of scientific knowledge,

the very way we see the world.

Why aren't you filming? Look!

Andy, who discovered

the ley lines in the first place?

Who told you about these intersections?


Well, yes, your data

has been very helpful.

Can you hear yourself?

You're an egomaniac.

It's Felix.

- Why is he calling you?

- Because you never answer him.


Maybe he can film your experiments,

'cause I'm done.

Yeah, right

That was mad, bro. Sick move.

Well, what'd you expect'?

And that's it.

My first pro video with Gleamer.

I'm super excited

to be a pan of the crew.

Mad props to my brand-new Gleamer board.

I couldn't do my tricks without it.

- Welcome to the family, kid.

- Sweet.

- I'll be right back.

- Do your thing.


Where are you going?

Really, Sam? You asked me here

to admire you, using your powers?

Well, yeah.

No, I-l mean... I mean...

Hurry, rescue him

before he says something intelligent.

Please sign my board.

20 bucks for selfies, 10 for phones,

pencil cases and T-shins.

- How much to sign body pans?

- That's just weird.

Right. That's the last of it.
