The Genesis of Henry

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

Of course I was not always a superhero. I used to be just this average guy, until a series of freak accidents gave me my powers.

After falling from the sky, mere toddlers both my sister and I, and being rescued by a kindly old couple who raised us as their own, I was bitten by a radioactive spider, accidentally inhaled some "heavy water" vapors, was involved in a labratory accident in which lightning struck a rack of toxic chemicals causing them to spill on me, discovered that my sister and I had been exposed to cosmic rays during our space voyage, got dropped in a vat of acid, was sugically altered by the government in a secret lab and, finally, had my nappy changed.

Man, that was a busy day.

Well that certainly explains everything...waiting so long to have your nappy change, that's just, well freaky.

lol well spotted.

lol well spotted. Ok, well some of the bits in today's episode might have been not quite entirely original, but the radioactive spider bit was just totally mine and it's a mega-coincidence that the exact same thing happened to spiderman. Really.

Glad you cleared that up. Just looking out for your integrity and all that shit.

Yes, have heard of integrity. I am definitely familiar with shit, because that's the stuff I am usually up to my neck in.
