Awesome / Double Duck

  • The very fact this series exists. Disney Italy already had a series with Donald working as a secret agent for his uncle (the PIA stories, actually mentioned in "Time Crime"), but had gone from their origins as Affectionate Parodies of James Bond to Flanderized comedies (as shown by Donald's main partner being switched from Daisy at her most competent to Fethry, of all people) with Donald as an unlucky klutz. Double Duck, on the other hand, shows the skills Donald acquired in years of doing everything (including being a superhero)... And it's still funny, as much if not more than the early PIA stories.
  • "Double Duck":
    • During the test mission, Donald is trapped on a roof and surrounded by enemies, and his only gadget is a cell phone that will do only a single call. Who does he call to deal with the enemies? The city employee dealing with his parking ticket, and provokes him into sending dozens of cops there.
    • After she saw him with Kay K during a mission, Daisy went to Donald's house for her usual show of jealousy. In two minutes, Donald had her convinced that Kay was a road cop.
    • Believing that agent B-Black is a traitor, Donald decides to keep him under surveillance. The problem is, B-Black is an experienced spy, paranoid even for a spy, and holds a grudge for when Donald stole his liquorice wheels during the three forgotten days. A bugged snack machine filled with liquorice wheels later, Donald has him under surveillance and trusting. He later tails the paranoid spy with ease by going by the one way he wouldn't think to check: the roofs.
    • Donald talking the bouncer into telling him the password-and calling him an idiot in the process.
    • The barman who outsmarts Donald: first he gives him informations of where B-Black went and has Donald pay him a lot... And then warns B-Berry (who is in the hideout).
    • As he's B-Black and B-Berry's prisoner, Donald is tied up and cannot recover the CD with (what he believes) the list of the Agency's agents. Then one of Burke's men comes in... And as everyone's distracted, Donald knocks them all out by dropping a bookshelf on them and escapes with the CD. Oh, and he's still tied up when he drops the CD on them.
    • Burke's plan to get the list: once he saw that B-Berry's computer didn't have it anymore he allowed the Agency to get it, knowing they'd track down B-Berry and the CD with the list... And have one of his men feign he was a PBI agent to have Donald trust him for help, so once they got the CD he'd steal it. And just in case the fake agent was exposed (as it happened), the cell phone he had given Donald had a GPS tracker, allowing him to complete the job anyway and capture Donald and Kay as a bonus. Had it really contained the list, Burke would have won then and there.
    • When B-Berry and B-Black try and use the CD to recover the evidence of Kay's embezzling the Agency's funds, Donald, believing they're traitors trying to recover the list of the Agency's agents, confronts the more experienced spies... And takes them down. And when Kay arrives and tells him the truth while holding him at gunpoint, Donald drops a shelf on her, forcing her to escape and go to her emergency plan.
    • Right at the end, Donald exposing Jay-J, the boss, as Kay in disguise-and the legendary thief Red Primerose, who nobody had ever seen in the face, let alone captured. Even Kay admits it was awesome...
    • One for Kay: she had replaced Jay-J months earlier, and had she not slipped for a single second she would have got away with it and stealing from the Agency.
  • The 2016 story “Pk vs Double Duck: Timecrime”. The existence of the story itself: as you likely noticed from the title, it's a Crossover between Paperinik New Adventures and Double Duck. You can't get a much more awesome setting using only the classic Disney characters…
    • Rogue Time Cop T32, alias Kay's descendant John Konnery, breaks into an apartment in Duckburg... And gets promptly beaten up by the owner Kay K, resulting in a broken chronosail. And he even choose it because it belonged to his ancestors...
    • Chasing T32 Kay gets on the roof and unwittingly distracts Lyla, stopping her from catching him and mistaking her for an accomplice. What does Kay do next? Wreck Lyla.
    • Paperinik breaking into the Agency to rescue Lyla, and making almost everyone look like fools before casually defeating Kay and Gizmo. The only reason he doesn't succeed is that, due the marvels of time travel, Double Duck is there too...
    • Pk versus Double Duck. An epic fight that ends only when they both realize that no, the other isn't an imposter (Paperinik comes from right after PKNA #39, and this story is set after "The Banks of Time", possibly after "The Black Beam").
    • To try and recover Lyla, and with her what he needs to repair his chronosail, T32 asks for help from local informants, who try and doublecross him. Too bad for them that the chronosail's damaged in such a way it can't travel through time, but can travel through space just fine. The poor fools quickly learn what happens when you fight someone who can teleport...
    • Axel Alpha's first appearance on page, getting the drop on T32 and immediately realizing that, with what he had seen in his job, a time machine was possible.
    • Paperinik and Double Duck convince Kay to help rescuing Lyla as soon as she's moved out of the Agency's base. Axel and T32 beat them to the punch and escape to the Horizon Labs at Belgravia.
    • Paperinik's Bavarian Fire Drill at Belgravia's customs.
    • As he waits for the chronosail to be repaired, Axel's getting bored. So he convinces T32 to help him having some fun... By kidnapping every single leader of the Division and the 20th century Organization and dropping them into the entry hall of the Agency's headquarter.
    • Horizon Labs are just as guarded as the Agency's headquarters, possibly more. Paperinik, Double Duck and Kay breaks into with embarrassing ease... And just as at the Agency, someone doesn't fall for it: Axel and T32.
    • T32 manages to teleport Paperinik into a makeshift death trap... And promptly gets socked by Double Duck with the Extransformer.
    • Double Duck, Paperinik, Kay and an auto-repared Lyla versus T32 and Axel. The only reason the bad guys even had a chance (and forced Paperinik to use the infamous Device 87 bis, and teleport the Extransformer somewhere and somewhen, as a distraction) was surprise and Kay's shock at learning that T32 is her descendant.
    • Our heroes versus the guards. The heroes are disarmed, the guards aren't. Curb-Stomp Battle ensues.
    • The guys at Horizon Labs successfully reverse-engineer the broken component of the chronosail.
    • After repairing the chronosail and erasing all the data Horizon Labs got from Lyla, Axel and T32 escapes in time. What do they do with a single chronosail and Axel's genius? Create the 23rd century Organization.
    • What happened to the Extransformer: it went in the past and was recovered by a nascent Agency, thus explaining both their advanced technology (reverse-engineered from that) and where the Extransformer seen in Gizmo's lab a previous Double Duck story came from. Also, the exact place and time the shield went: Villa Rosa, right before Donald came there for the first time and found Fantomius' journal.
  • In "Reboot" Donald does something that many fans have wanted him to do for years: gently kick Daisy out of his home when her jealousy interferes with his secret agent job. And he does it twice.
