Quote1.png What are you talking about? I'm in the secret H.Q. of a society of freakin' awesome! I've seen them! Amazing powers and those pretty uniforms! Everything I've ever dreamed about, it's all real! And me being bullied at school and lonely and fat! All this time thinking I was different in some amazing way. That was real too! Look, they said it's dangerous, but that's okay. I was meant for this. My whole life is about this moment. It'll work. I know it will. Don't be a jerk. Make me a superhero. Pleasepleaseplease...

Quote1.png I'm not saying I wasn't scared. I totally was! I mean, how fast could I go? How high could I fly? Would I be able to stop his fall? Would he take me down with him? So, yeah. It was scary. But this is what heroes do, right? They throw themselves into the void for strangers without a second thought. They hold the line of compassion for other human beings in a world built on chaos. There's only one reason why I didn't go to the great cosmic comic-con in the sky with mom and dad in that car crash all those years ago... I'm still here because the world needs me. My name's Zephyr. I'm a superhero. Quote2.png

Quote1.png I don't care if I fall again. I don't care if I die from flying right now. Thank you. Thank you for this life. Quote2.png

Quote1.png What are any of you saying? These are innocent, weak children in trouble! I'm sick of this - this bull hockey! All of it! I'm sick of stealing people's cars and robbing banks! I'm sick of picking fights with disabled people in bars and getting drunk and wiping people's memories and brainwashing the police! Do you really think we were made special so we could do nothing for nobody?! When are we going to stop being a bunch of selfish jerks and start helping others?! When?! Quote2.png
