I get the feeling Tyler’s story won’t go down that well with his classmates…
I don’t know, if you ask me, Moonshadow is way cooler than someone who actually has superpowers. Heck, even Batman has quasi magical powers he won’t admit too.
Of course, I’m of the opinion that everyone in comic books has some advantage that they aren’t yet fully aware of. For Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark it’s immortality, which I find ironic.
Tyler is odd one to place. Knowledge of other universes, possibilities, is not outside the reach of most human beings. So, it’s not really a super power. I refuse to acknowledge money as a superpower, it is a tool, quite possibly the greatest tool ever devised by man, but it is not a legitimate superpower.
However, if I were to guess, Tyler’s power is related to his birthright. Then again, that could be classified as luck, which is also not something i consider a super power.
Actually, now that I think about it, Super Position could be considered a legitimate super power…being two or more places at the same time could be a real talent if it weren’t for the fact that he was cloned and his twin doesn’t share all of the same memories…
So, I guess the real question is why do you think Tyler’s story won’t be well received by the rest of the class?
Because almost all of them see Moonshadow as the great hero with plus-super powers, and there is a subtle undercurrent of contempt for mundanes. Some of the other kids may feel he’s badmouthing their hero, whereas others are going to laugh their silly heads off.
Hero and martyr, that’s how they remember him.
But truly, no powers is fine with me. Which of Tyler and Toby is happier right now? I think I’m a little surprised there aren’t more powerless heros, as both major comic universes have a bunch who don’t have any. So why is Revenant the ONLY one?
