Defining a Superhero

This was my first original fiction blog. I started writing it in January of 2012. it has progressed for 4 years, I have occasionally lost the thread and promised when I rewrote it I would get the continuity fixed at that point. Most of it works, the story went in directions I never suspected or planned for it to go.

This is the story of Nemesis, told from his perspective.

The Lone Wolf

Nemesis starts out as a nameless largely faceless vigilante seeking no real reason for wanting to do what he does. He justifies what he sees as his balancing justice because he can. He claims he has no overall motives for being a vigilante. The lies that we tell ourselves.


The Beginning of Heroism

By rescuing Maggie, a bartender in the now famous Quickie Mart sequence, Dixon finds that he as a reason to be a hero more than just a brutal enforcer of his own code of justice.

clothing changing their density & color to
match his will (so far) For instance he can change
a hoodie into a material that has the same
