Henry Flashback

My name is Henry the Adequate and I am a superhero.

When I was in high school I wanted to play sports, but couldn't because of my superpowers. One time I got so frustrated that when nobody was looking I kicked a football as hard as I could and it went soaring away into the distance - almost twenty meters. Ok ten.

Luckily nobody saw what I did.

Dirty Henry

"I know what you're thinking. Did he fire five shots, or six? In all this commotion, I really can't remember. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself, do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

Now I have a bullet lodged against my spine, and the doctors tell me I may never walk again.

Apparently he felt lucky.

Henry and the Continuing Quest for Supervillains

My name is Henry ... etc

Tonight I roam the footpaths in search of supervillains.

I see some guys stealing a car. They do not look super enough, so I move on. Ever wandering, roaming further in my lonely quest for those elusive supervillains. My feet ache and my heart is heavy with the tedium of the hunt.

I stop for donuts.

Henry In Search of Supervillains

My name is Henry the Adequate and I am a superhero.

Tonight I roam the streets in search of supervillains. A bus almost runs me over. Only my superpowers save me from a fate worse than not being run over by a bus.

Henceforth I shall roam the footpaths in search of supervillains.
