Sheesh, first he get's blasted with some sort of weird eye-beam, now he's frozen. Ben just can't catch a break. Of course, it might help if he didn't do shooting dolphin beams haphazardly.
Metroid, Samus Aran, Space Pirates, and all that other stuff are properties of Nintendo. Contra is a property of Konami. All other characters are property of their respective owners. Pretty much everything else is property of me, unless specifically noted otherwise.
