A Thought

Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about super heroes, which probably doesn’t shock anyone out there. But I’ve come to a conclusion about my thoughts. I want to write something that is super hero based and see where it takes me. I have always been interested in them. Why shouldn’t I at least pay tribute to this in writing?

Now, I know that I am another fanboy thinking about writing about something that he loves. I am not under any delusion that what I write is going to be amazing. But I think that it will be interesting and will be something for me.

Now to my idea. My thought is about what happens to some of the B-list superheroes after they have become older. What happens to them when the only ones who remember their names are the ones that seem to still try to get to them for past transgressions? I would want to deal centrally around characters that people don’t necessarily know. Now, given, some of them will have to be known because for an off character to exist there has to be some notable around them.

As much as I don’t really like him, I am pondering using Quicksilver from the X-Men/X-Factor as my central character. I would make him older somehow whether this be by natural aging or because he has an unstable molecular structure due to his “superspeed’ tendencies. I would want to develop this idea out, but in my head, I already have a villain and motivations as to why this idea might work.

I will continue to keep toying with this in my mind. There are still a lot of variables to negotiate, but I’m going to try to put something together really soon.
