    The steel door burst open, allowing the metallic scent of the wet city into the corridor. Struggling forward into the night, Andrew lost his balance, smacked his shoulder on the door frame, tripped over something on the concrete stoop and went face fir...

  • Superhero Convention

    “So, what’s your power?” James looked at the eager face in front of him and sighed quietly. He hated questions like this. He only came here for the free food, which was provided by the city, who relied on the heroes every time the pol...

    She kicked the can farther than the rest of the boys who looked on from perches that dressed the sides of the alley way. It wasn’t her plan to beat them at their own game, something she found silly and arbitrary in determining social status, yet ...

  • One Order To Go

    “You like? Me make more!” You have to admit, for a Trelea, he was a good cook. Enthusiastic, boisterous, and really, really annoying. “No Gea, I can’t eat any more. It’s good, but I’m human, we take time to digest ou...

  • All You Can Eat

    I could eat a horse. No, literately, thanks to that pill Gea the Trelean had given me, I could eat a complete horse in one sitting. Each bite would be digested nearly instantly by my supercharged digestive system. The side effect? I’d die. The hu...

  • Lick The Plate Clean

    I pushed away from the table, feeling a bit woozy. Even though I weigh my food, I have to pace myself or my supercharged digestive system will spike my system and I can faint. Still, it was worth it. Everything tasted great, including the silverware an...

  • Aggressively Normal.

    The council watched in solemn silence as the video played on the gigantic presentation screen. Napalm’s fires went out in an instant and she skidded to a bloody halt on the pavement. Tinman’s metal skin fell away from his body like foil, le...

  • Dieter touched his fingers to the wall.

    And pushed, cracking plaster and crushing concrete, pushed with both hands then strode through the weakened barrier. Above him, the building groaned as it shifted, trying to settle with one of its load-bearing structures now fragments beneath steel-toe...

  • SuperHero Black Hole

    I won’t give you my origin story. There’s no point dwelling in the past. Which is ironic, given my power. Yes, you read that correctly. POWER. I’m what comicbook geeks would call a SUPERHERO. Only, unlike nine-panel Supermen and anime...

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part II

    Time to explain the limits of my ability. Ready? You see, every second that expires of every hour of every day becomes part of The Past. Once it’s past, it’s gone. Geronimo. Adios. Whatever. But every second that has YET to happen, that has...

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part III

    You have to understand that my ability, as freaky as it sounds, is as weird to me as it is to you. The time I first realised I had this ability was on Monday, September 28th, 2009. It was 6:05pm. I had finished watching a repeat of the last ever episod...

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part IV

    Seeing my dad this way, MINUS the ugly scar that had cut a vicious curved line into his face for nearly two months after the anti-climactic aftermath of the car accident that had left him with that gaping, bloody gash in his face, was…well, if yo...

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part V

    Now, before my story goes any further, there is one last facet of my power you must know about. And it’s the most critical part of my power. Using me as an example, and pretending that someone else might have the same power as me, I’ll desc...

  • Chew

    The apple rolled across the shack’s dusty floor, its body vermiculate and emaciated. It tucked into the corner of the room near a large mouse-hole. Not long after, a rotund mouse padded out of the hole. Circling around behind the sickly fruit, th...

  • Sidekick

    The Avenger and the purse-thief spiraled up the fire escape to the roof where they jumped gap after gap across the high-rises. Eventually the man dropped the purse and stopped to catch his breath, holding his hands up submissively. “Stop! I give ...

  • Even Heroes Get the Blues

    A sparce wind flicked bobbing weeds this way and that. The field stretched in all directions, a sea of green and tawny brown. Solitary and still, a hulking figure sat in the middle, eyes downcast and hands idly pulling apart seed clusters. Face red fro...
