I have reached the fifth chapter of my new superhero book. This chapter will feature another flashback to the superhero’s past and what would eventually lead him to the path of becoming a vigilante. Every superhero has an origin story and my new superhero’s origin story is a combination between science and tragedy.
I have reached an epiphany regarding my new superhero book. At first, I planned for it to be a standalone book, but I am noticing aspects f the story that would lead to the formation of my own superhero universe. In future sequels, I will be depicting a different kind of superhuman army. There will be two superhuman armies, one of superheroes and one of supervillains. Unlike battles between warriors like the final battle in Avengers: Endgame, the war between these two armies will be a war of ideologies. Each army will be divided into several regiments: one for warriors, one for intelligence, one for politics, one for propaganda, and one for corporations. Both of these armies will be competing not just to save the world, but also winning the support of the public. It will be like the Cold War except it is between two superhuman armies instead of two nuclear countries.
In my fantasy series, Numen Magnus is famous for battling the demonic bear known as the Graega. Numen’s sons slew chimeras the same size as their dragons. Monster slaying has become a tradition in House Magnus and each time they kill a monster, the fame and prestige of their House grows. I am thinking of having Numen’s grandson carry on the family tradition and battle his own monster. I am imagining this new monster to be a mixture between the wendigo, Grendel, and Loki’s bastard from The Ritual. How this beast comes into being will remain a mystery, but its existence will send ripples through the surrounding kingdoms.
I have finished the third chapter and started the fourth chapter of my new superhero book. The third chapter introduces the first supervillain of the story, who is a mad scientist with both sadistic and masochistic tendencies. The fourth chapter depicts the chain of events that lead to the superhero’s first skirmish against criminals. In addition, the fourth chapter will show a glimpse of how the superhero is haunted by his demons. These will be chapters that will be the penumbra of the dark times to come.
I have reached the second chapter of my new superhero book. This chapter will be one of multiple flashbacks that reveal the origin story of my superhero. This first flashback will unveil the event that would change the superhero’s life forever. It has come to my attention that one of the primary motivators for superheroes is tragedy and loss.
In my new superhero book, I will be featuring a unique virgin birth. This virgin birth will not be the result of a divine miracle but the result of a morally ambiguous science experiment. This virgin birth will also highlight the importance of a particular character in the story. I won’t say who that character is, but that character will change the world.
I have started my third attempt to write my new superhero book and it is going smoothly. I used the timeline from my previous attempts and modified it to fit into the newest version. I have also started the first chapter and it starts with a family gathering before turning into a fight on the streets. I think I have found the right version I want to pursue and I will keep you updated on any further developments.
