Super Different Fashion Sense

Superheroes: Same goals, very different fashion senses

Spiro loved his black latex suit.
Not because it showed off his muscles.
Not because it hid him reasonably well at night.
He liked it because Megalo-Don found it absolutely repellant.
Said it made him look like a giant eggplant.

Best two out of three? Not an option.

An unthinking astronaut is sucked into the void after missing the dartboard.

By mid-summer the entire social media team was generating increasingly bizarre content,
controlled by the wild invisible strings emanating from his dark cubicle.

Just because you’re paranoid...

Munchley, the paranoid but astute crocodile

Munchley knew he had paranoid tendencies. 

Still, Linus had never been late with the ledgers before.  
And they were warm to the touch.

If Linus had, in fact, cooked the books, he’d soon be cooking his own left hand, no mistake.
And eating it too, all while still attached.

“Wonder how that’ll go,” Munchley mused.
