Like most nerds of the comic world I did come up with my own idea for a superhero. The name of my book: The Gradual Death of Doctor Justice. Now, I know you're thinking, "Ryan, what the hell are you talkign about?... and by the way, you sure are attractive". Thank you. And I'll tell you about my comic right now:
The main character is a man named Oliver Drake. Like most would-be superheroes Oliver Drake is a leading scientist in his field. Oliver lives in a world where superheroes are all over the news, magazines and seen on the the streets fighting crime. Oliver Drake wants in. He's tired of being a penicl pushing, nine to fiver; he wants to be a superhero. Being a scientist, he starts plans on a way to turn a normal person into the most power super person in the world. All his tests with animals are hit or miss, but Oliver knows that if he could just have a human subject his new super potion would work.
One night Oliver goes into the local pub to drink his frustration away and he meets a man sitting at the bar by himself. This man turns out to be a drifter; no family, no home, no one who would miss him. After buying this man a few, Oliver persuades him to be involved in a few "tests" for matters of "national security". They go back to Oliver's research lab... which Oliver thinks is empty. Oliver injects the drifter with his elixir. At first everything looks great, the man has super strength, super speed and even super intelligence. Then, all at once, the man drops dead: heart failure, brain aneurysm, and multiple other complications. Right at that moment one of Oliver's collegues walks in and sees the dead man on the floor. Oliver has no idea what to do and rushes out of the room.
Oliver had to disapear, he was now wanted for murder, he went into hiding. He spends the next several years, and his life savings, perfecting a belt that would turn him into a superhero. When he finally gets it to work he puts it on and does infact become a fantastically powered super being. He calls him self Doctor Justice
Doctor Justice becomes loved around the world. He's able to stop villians other, more popular superheroes, had tired and failed to. he is truly the superier hero.
But after a few months of being Doctor Justice, Oliver realizes that his body can't handle becoming Doctor Justice. Whenever he uses the belt it deteriorates his body (and mental well being). He also realizes that if his body dies as Oliver Drake, not even his belt, with it's seemily limitless power, could keep him alive. The real problem is: Oliver is addicted to the raw power, respect, and influence he has as Doctor Justice... even though he knows it will kill him.
That's all for now.
