“In this lifetime we are like Superman who must remain disguised as the nerdy newspaper journalist Clark Kent, or Harry Potter and his friends who are not allowed to do magic while they are on holiday, away from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry... but even Harry Potter and Clark Kent get to tap into their ‘special powers’ once in a while, especially when the going gets tough.”

Reece Hirsch
“During the years of struggling to make partner, he had sometimes entertained the comical notion that making partner would imbue him with new powers, like a budding superhero who had been bitten by a radioactive spider.

“You ask for happiness, Ms. Stuart. Certainly, that’s what everyone wants–Aristotle said happiness is the ultimate goal of all people, and that the desire for wealth and fame and power are all just paths to happiness. And yet…happiness…it’s a bit abstract, isn’t it? As the front door says, I deal in antiquities and tangibles. Which is not to say I can’t cope with more aspirational requests–if you asked for the aforementioned wealth or power, or for youth, or beauty, or inspiration, I have items that can grant all those wishes. But happiness… Can you be a bit more specific? Can you tell me what would make you happy?”
Tim Pratt, Antiquities and Tangibles and Other Stories

“It is remarkable that a fist-gnawingly dire England performance still has the power to shock, when in some ways this one had all the exquisite unpredictability of Norman Wisdom approaching a banana skin in the immediate vicinity of a swimming pool...
The England shirt is the precise opposite of a superhero costume, turning men with extraordinary abilities into mild-mannered guys next door. Were Stephen Fry to pull it on, he would struggle to string a sentence together. Were Lucian Freud to slip it over his head he would turn his easel round to reveal a childlike scribble of a cat.”
Marina Hyde

Kipjo K. Ewers

“Superman helps everyone, but who helps Superman?
What happens when he’s the one in need?
Does he have someone to call to save him?
Superman needs a hero too, but when he does will they still call him Superman?”
Lidia Longorio, Hey Humanity

“When you’re a teenager, everybody is waiting for you to be something or someone else - your friends, your parents, your teachers. Sometimes you lose track. Are you the shy kid in the back of the room who apologizes for even accidentally touching Susan Childress’s arm, or the guy making bombs in the backyard? Are you the helpless nerd with the backpack on hoping you don’t get the snot beat out of you by the school bully, or the helpless nerd with the mask on, hoping you don’t get the snot beat out of you by the town’s newest supervillain?
Or maybe you’re just the helpless nerd staring at the helpless nerd in the mirror, talking to yourself, wondering which one of you needs more help.”
John David Anderson

Steven Magee

Steven Magee

“They say "never say never".Well, I can assure you that, you will NEVER make me feel bad about being black, being a woman, and being ambitious. If this offends, sounds like a personal issue and you have my thoughts and prayers (cuz I'm a Christian too). Live in and for your purpose. You were not created to be mediocre. And continue to pay it forward. Someone can always learn from your testimony.”
Liz Faublas, You Have a Superpower: Mindi Pi Meets Ava "Why Can't I Go Outside"

“You did this somehow, didn't you? You changed Misha's memories about last night!"
"Not just Misha's," the voice said. "Everyone who witnessed it, including the police who were called. I even fixed the counter you smashed, so there’s no evidence of anything unusual happening last night. You have nothing to worry about anymore."
​"Who are you that you could do that? I know you helped me, and I'm grateful, but you messed with all those people's minds! You even made Josh forget!"
"Would you rather I killed them all? Because that was my alternative. I've done it before."

Allen Steadham, Mindfire

“It’s brave of you to do this. But there’s still time to cancel and all of us get out”, Deaton said as Kyle flopped backwards and sprawled on the bed. With eyes closed he answered.
“Can’t do that. I once chose to do nothing. The price was too high. Anyway, this may be the only chance we’ll have to rescue those taken. I’m all in.”
R.L. Arenz III, Aegis
