The Super Babies: Book III: Revenge of Hell Burnbottom is a 2011 The Super Babies book written and illustrated by D. Isaac Thomas. It was the third official book to be published and the second to be available in book stores.
The book begins as the Second NoHead War continues. The S.M.S.B. recruits Telekinibabe to their cause, whilst fighting to save everyone from the invasion of the NoHeads. It was the longest “Super Babies” book at the time, as well as the least action-oriented.
The war against Hell Burnbottom is not going well. With the Grand Army in shambles, the superhero Baby Intelligence must bring together wizards and his fellow superheroes - and a surly alien misfit - for a much-desired battle against the vengeful sons of Mr. Stupid NoHead and their deadly yet seductive sidekick, Annabeth Black.
Hell Burnbottom is tightening his grip on both the mutants and the Fobbles. Indicted by him to make an example of their enemies, Deaformas are running free and war robots are freely roaming the land, burning villages and massacring the people.
MBH attack Edit
Shortly after the mission for Rocken Role, Burnbottom dispatches Rockets to invade the MBH. However, two members retaliate. After having to battle their way through squads of Rockets, Lindsay and Baby Intelligence make their way to the command deck where Burnbottom and Gunray have arrived to, shielding themselves behind blast doors. The babies are more apprehensive of two arriving Bratpros, but are able to defeat them. The babies immediately round on Burnbottom and Gunray, who decide to escape.
Baby Intelligence, Lindsay, and the former's apprentices, Baby Strength and Force Baby, agree it's getting way too easy for the NoHeads to get to them. They decide they need to contact President Aaron Clinton in Maryland, but have no way of reaching him as their phone has been hijacked.
Baby Intelligence notices a net and immediately sees a hunk of meat lying nearby tied to a stick. Deducing it was a trap with bait, he cuts apart the net and heads off. However, the prisoner, a bumbling Tsurb named Lisa Kirke, follows him and insists on following Baby Intelligence to repay her debt, much to the infant's annoyance. Lisa suggests they go to her camp, where she has left her cell phone behind.
To Lisa's irritation, the phone is broken meaning they still can't contact the President. Baby Intelligence urges Lindsay and the two escort Lisa past twenty robot soldiers and a half-built robot camp. Lisa panicks and flees, leaving the S.M.S.B. members to leap up mushrooms to reach the top of the tree and the nearby plateaus to evade their adversaries. They transverse here and proceed into a cave, where they find a snake who seems "way hungrier than helpful". Baby Intelligence reluctantly ends its life, and after he and Lindsay lament over the way of the food chain, they rejoin Lisa at the base of the hill the cave is on. Infuriated at Lisa's cowardice, Lindsay attacks her, even though Lisa defends herself by claiming she has poor long term memory, forcing Baby Intelligence to end the quarrel with a Shield. Lindsay storms into the tent and Baby Intelligence goes in to fetch her. They return to the MBH.
Baby Intelligence has a meeting with the others that Lisa stands around during the course of. They decide to go to the Yellowstone Base to silence the NoHeads and initiate a rematch, thus preventing an oncoming invasion.
Battle in the MBHEdit
When Baby Intelligence awakens, he summons the others. He follows Lindsay downstairs, where Lindsay wakes Lisa and tells her it's time to leave for the garage. However, Hell Burnbottom appears just as the group is leaving, and duels with Baby Intelligence. The fight is cut short when Baby Intelligence manages to escape his assailant by jumping onboard the Pinewood Derby as it takes off.
Discovery of TelekinibabeEdit
Due to the lack of fuel, the S.M.S.B. is forced to land at a junkyard for fuel. While searching for a fuel source, they befriend Tyler, a unanticipated baby and young slave, whose master is Albert Herrington, a junk dealer. Herrington has the fuel in stock, but Baby Intelligence is unable to purchase it, as he does not have the money.
Tyler is gifted with piloting and mechanical abilities, and has built an almost-complete astromech droid. Baby Intelligence senses his strength. By organizing a race which Tyler would enter, Baby Intelligence orchestrates a gamble in which the baby will be released from slavery while also acquiring their needed fuel. The night before the race, Baby Intelligence asks him how he feels about his power. Tyler wins the race and joins the team as they head for the NoHead base. On the way, he is renamed Telekinibabe.
Baby Intelligence knows they cannot defeat the NoHeads independently. Telekinibabe suggests they go to the police for help. At the station, Baby Intelligence attempts to locate the police there, but Baby Strength, after searching it, informs them that it was abandoned. Baby Intelligence then leads them to an older station which he was certain they were at. Upon arriving at their destination, Baby Intelligence negotiates with Sheriff Bladepoint to form an alliance and unite in battle against the NoHeads.
Wilcox keeps her promise and tells Dorber via cell phone that she has chosen to join the fighting after all. In the meantime, Willie has fled to Yellowstone and informs Hell Burnbottom of a weakness in the outer wall of the Golden Gates, which Annabeth Black plans to exploit in response to Burnbottom's initial indifference. Burnbottom dispatches his army to the Golden Gates, ordering them to spare no one apart from Baby Intelligence, who is needed for "reckoning".
Journey to the Golden Gates Edit
The thousands of robots besiege the Golden Gates.
On the Grand Army's journey there, the S.M.S.B. is attacked by Deaformas. During the skirmish, Carol Wilcox is struck with the Deaforma's Lash: Baby Intelligence, Lindsay Kellerman, and Telekinibabe believe her dead and journey on to the Golden Gates. Kellerman says they should inform Dorber of this, but Baby Intelligence says it can wait whilst denying either Wilcox nor Dorber have feelings for each other.
Battle of the Golden Gates Edit
Baby Intelligence arrives to find the situation poised on the edge of war. The Grand Army camps on a plain opposite the vast armies of Hell Burnbottom.
Catching RC-4 by surprise, Force Baby fires at his arm, disabling him and requiring that several angry robots carry him off.
The battle of the Golden Gates begins with a flurry of gunfire from the defending members of the Grand Army, cutting down dozens of robots. At short range, Bratpros roll in and unleash their whips against the enemy. Then Walters and Bartholomew Gales pop up as if out of nowhere and project fields to allow robots to scale the walls. Many officers were killed during this stage of the battle as the pressure increased. Despite losing many men in this stage, Telekinibabe notes that they have managed to keep the robots from getting a foothold of the gate. they had managed to keep the robots from getting a foothold on the gate.
Initially, Baby Intelligence is intensely reluctant to participate in the fight, as he does not want Telekinibabe, Carol, and Gobbles hurt. However, Ford forces him to realize that it is madness not to interfere, so he relents. Baby Intelligence sends his pupils into the fray, encouraging his friend Carol to rain down death who in turn encourages Gobbles, and he himself dives in, skillfully wielding his sword against the forces of evil. Suddenly, two mines that Hell Burnbottom created detonate, allowing the robots entry into the outer defenses, blow up the gutter in the Gate C. Despite Baby Intelligence and Telekinibabe's best efforts, the war robots manage to penetrate the third gate and soon the stronghold is overrun.
As the fighting continues, Baby Intelligence quickly comes up with a ready force of police, along with Baby Strength and Lindsay Kellerman to capture a NoHead tank, Transport 509, to approach the Yellowstone Base without being detected by NoHead forces. The group navigates the transport to the entrance of a secret passage at the base of the cliff face. To their utter shock, Carol is there, very much alive. Baby Intelligence apologizes for losing Gobbles, but Carol reveals that he is with them. She reflects on the state she and the S.M.S.B. are in, on how their story may yet come to have a happy ending, even when so much bad had happened. Kellerman is doubtful of this, but Wilcox insists that they must still hold on to what they are fighting for each other and the fulfillment of their quest. The ready force disembarks.
Baby Intelligence and the others now know that things have been set in motion that cannot be undone or avoided. Hell Burnbottom will surely seek retribution for the defeat of his sidekick and strike at the Grand Army again, only stronger and with greater fury. He accepts that with the Grand Army returned, the time has come to "show the NoHeads what a real war is like".

Deleted scenes Edit
Visiting Empress Zira GroverEdit
In order to bet on Tyler during the Great Sky Race, Baby Intelligence agreed to meet Empress Zira, Queen of the U.S.A., in order to borrow money from the monarch. He met her assistant soon after. He gave him directions, which led to an arena under Zira’s throne room. Zira offered Intelligence 25 dollars if he could defeat her monstrous champion in a death match. Intelligence was able to achieve victory over the beast, and took the money. He then left the arena after Zira. Impressed by his skill and cunning, Zira opened the exit. Intelligence found himself in a lounge and asked the tailor where to find his transport. The tailor took him to the transport, and he hurried back to New York City. After returning the transport, Intelligence regrouped with the others in the grandstands.
This scene is completely canon.
Skirmish at the RacecourseEdit
After meeting with Empress Zira Grover, Baby Intelligence then headed down to the starting line, and met with Tyler. When he arrived there, Tyler told him that someone had stolen the ignition key from Tyler’s racer. After searching the arena, Baby Intelligence located the thief and demanded he return the key. The scavenger, who refused to return the key, attacked Baby Intelligence. During the fight, mechanized blasters appeared and fired at Baby Intelligence. Baby Intelligence was forced to kill the scavenger and destroy the guns; he then brought the key back to Tyler.
