How odd... posted 14 Apr 2006, 16:04 by Quinthane, Candidate

. Wow. Who knew? I went to the gym today and discovered that I am endowed with super-human strength. I'm pretty sure that yesterday this wasn't the case. I can't swear to that, but I don't recall being able to uproot trees or bend steel or nothing. that I think on it...I didn't really try any of that yesterday. Anyway, today I seem to be capable of feats of godlike strength. I bench-pressed the entire aerobics room, did shrugs with the reception desk, and dead-lifted the smoothie bar. Then I was asked to leave. After doing some curls with a Jeep 4X4 in the parking lot I decided that I'm probably not going to get much more out of conventional lifting so I came home. I've opened all the jars in the house and rotated the garage three feet to the left. (better angle on the driveway) But, I'm not sure that this is the best use for my new-found uncanny prowess. Feels like I out, I dunno, humanity or something. I've left the house three times with the intention of going out to save the world, but haven't made it as far as the street yet. Not sure if this is a 'What would Kellhus do?' situation or more a Cnaiur-beat the crap outta anyone who tapes a 'faggot-weeper' sign on my back. You folks are pretty bright, any thoughts?

use your new found strengtgh to feed orphans in Africa, cure AIDS, and find a cheap, effective energy source that doesn't f*ck up the ecosystem....then i'll be impressed. until then, vigilantes don't get paid that well, so i suggest that you keep your day job view post

Hmmm. Well, you could do me a favour. See if you can rip your own arm off. I always wondered why that didn't happen to the guys in the comics. I too have a super power, you know. I can talk to animals. But they pretend not to hear me, just like people. *sigh* view post

Hey guys. Thanks for your tips on how to handle this. I've thought about it and decided that I should pick a super hero name and get a costume put together. Then I'll hit the streets. Have to admit, this part is tougher than I expected. I've been sitting here for two hours now and nothing I come up with seems to sound right or convey the benevolences and valiance that I plan to unleash upon the world. (Doesn't help that there's been some terrible accident outside in the street and all the screaming children and sirens have made it really hard to concentrate. Something about a bus of orphans on fire, or.....nuns, maybe? I don't know. I'll check CNN during my next smoke break.) I initially wanted to go with Captain something (Captain Chaos, Captain Strong, Captain Krusher, Captain Sarge, Captain Order, Captain Logos, Captain Coal Crusher, Captain Etc., Captain Larry, etc.) but I'm not sure how that will go over with the military. Plus, people start calling you 'Cap' and that's no good. Kinda run into the same problem with Doctor. Thought for a while about going the 'Color' route. Maybe with an animal or animal part attached. (Red Talon, Black Cougar, Black Angel, Crimson Claw, Green Gopher, Sepia Nail, Red Fox, Blue Whale and so on) but I don't know. I've never known what color "was me" and never really cared. Plus, that kind of title’s going to limit your costume choices. (Christ, I haven't even come close to dealing with that yet.) Mostly I want to pick a name that say's "Hey! I got your back, Society!" but also insinuates "My wraith is terrible and my vengeance swift!" It should also be something dark and brooding..."tortured soul in a world he never made" kinda flavor. Like Batman, only without the homosexual overtones. A name that say's "Don't fuck with me when I'm Brooding in the shadows of the roof-top gargoyles in the pouring rain"….but is also a green light to the ladies. Crap, this hard. Maybe they have a "Rooms To Go" type dealie for super heroes. I'll google search it and get back to you. Any more recommendations are welcomed, guys. And WarriorPoet, I'll take you up on your arch-nemesis offer. Let's get together soon for coffee and work out the details. Quinthane (aka- DestructoMagma, Gorga-Herc "Eater of Worlds", Ronin the Nazgul, MegaThorn, MogRumsfeld,...Biscuit....nah, those all suck.) view post

InexOR. You have to put the accent on the OR or else it sounds like a hair care product or diet supplement. Was also thinking Inexorable Man, but it would sound horrible if someone was saying it in a hurry (which people tend to do with superheroes and such). That, and the 'man' part is just way too mysogenistic for this day and age. view post

Hm... Maybe I can spare some of my character's names or the temporary nicknames I had... Falne Ett could be one, it means "Fallen One" (actually, I'm not sure if I paired it wrong and it says the other way around... damn Norweigain (sp?-_-) dictionary >_o)... Or Exper/Esper... Perhaps, White Lance? view post
