Aphorisms for a Superhero Universe

Recommended Posts

"Nature abhors a hero. For one thing, he violates the law of conservation of energy. For another, how can it be the survival of the fittest when the fittest keeps putting himself in situations where he is most likely to be creamed?"--Solomon Short

Never hold super team meetings in someone's home.  Eventually, the villains will attack during the meeting and you'll lose your security deposit.

"Just do right. Right may not be expedient, it may not be profitable, but it will satisfy your soul.  It brings you the kind of protection that bodyguards can’t give you.  So try to live your life in a way that you will not regret years of useless virtue and inertia and timidity.

 

Take up the battle. Take it up.  It’s yours. This is your life.  This is your world."---Maya Angelou

"The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing we can ever truly control: whether we are good or evil."

*Always* treat the villains like a friendly foe that you find amusing. It will often become true.

 

*Never* assume that the villains *are* a friendly foe, happy to amuse you. It is not always true.

 

(Because, lets be honest, the stakes are always suddenly lower for "comedic" storylines, despite how powerful and serious the same villain and same macguffin are in a "serious" storyline.)

"No, we will NOT take shortcuts on the path to righteousness. No, we will NOT break the rules that protect us from our basest instincts. No, we will NOT allow desperation to destroy moral authority."
