He made us all heroes.

If we listened.

Malign him not.

Billions wear the cape because of him.

Billions found their strength beyond strength.

Children raise their hand with imaginary powers.

Grown-ups adorn themselves with the shield.

Every time you make a fist, you feel the claws at the back of your hands.

The Helmet, The hammer, The Armor, The Anger, mutant, mutate, alien, or god.

Modern mythologies.

Billions are mighty.

Rest well.
