These days (Friday Fictioneers)

June 4, 2021

The fallout after a superhero vs super villain fight was getting out of hand. Insurance stopped paying, the city delayed rebuilding, and around every corner you found something new and dangerous to alter your path. A car that hangs over the protection rail bordering the local library carpark. Though, I guess the rail did what it was designed to do and stopped the thrown vehicle in its tracks. My commute through town is an obstacle course. Today I am frozen mid-step by a red cape as the car is lifted down. At least they are now cleaning up after themselves.

  1. It’s getting harder and harder to tell the superheroes and the supervillains apart. Great fun, Laurie

  2. I can’t help but think of “The Boys” – the series on Amazon Prime… these “Supes” ain’t all that Super. And they are definitely not saving peeps for the sake of saving them, either!

  3. Sounds as if the Super Hero and Villains are just being themselves, damn those blockbuster movies they always leave a trail of destruction. Look at all the popcorn wasted on the floor>>>

  4. I love this. What a unique idea to let the normal people give their opinion on the mess the superheroes leave behind.

  5. Dear Laurie,

    One has to wonder in those superhero action films who cleans up the aftermath mess. This made me chuckle. Nicely done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  6. The sordid underbelly of the superhero. An accountant’s worst nightmare! Inventive, Laurie!

  7. Yeah, if they’re going to behave like that they should damn well clean up after themselves
