♥ I'm the guy with electrodes attached to his testicles. Obviously, this isn't what I had in mind when I first pulled on the mask. I thought it would be more leaping over rooftops and pitchy put-downs to purse snatchers. But this is the reality of the situation. This is what happens when you mess with bad people.

♥ The first time I ogled myself in the bedroom mirror I realized how far off the mark the comic books had been. It didn't take a trauma to make you wear a mask. It didn't take your parents getting shot, or cosmic ray or a power ring... Just the perfect combination of loneliness and despair.

♥ And so, after four operations, two months of counselling, three metal plates fitted inside my head, and endless weeks of physical rehabilitation, I finally realized why there's no such thing as superheroes in the real world.
