HUDSON RIVER STATE HOSPITAL

Hudson_River_State_Hospital

I did some research on asylums in New York and I came across the Hudson River State Hospital. It was an insane asylum that closed seven years ago. However, I am thinking of drawing inspiration from this building for my new superhero book. Superhero stories such as Batman had asylums such as Arkham Asylum. Supervillains are often criminally insane and they often get sent to asylums so I am thinking of staying true to this tradition. In the alternate timeline my story takes place, Hudson River State Hospital will still be open except it won’t be the home of supervillains. Instead, one of the main characters’ former teammates ends up in this asylum after a traumatic near-death experience while fighting crime.

PROFESSIONAL REVIEW!!!

Numen the Slayer received a four star review from a professional reviewer:

“The plot was set during the dark early times when the world was still mired in magic, sorcery and endless battles in a struggle for survival.

Galen was still a child when his father, Vaegar handed the deadly Gramfyre to him just before giving up the ghost. The Gramfyre was not just an ordinary sword but one with potent mystical powers and Vaegar had created it using the last drop of his blood.

1300 years later, Numen was having a discussion with his friend Tristan in the courtyard when a strange female voice called out to him. The ominous voice was coming from a dark hallway within the castle and out of curiosity; Numen went after it and was followed by Tristan. On getting to the source, Numen saw a strange sword; he has never seen anything like it before. Unknown to him, it was the magical and deadly Gramfyre that was created by the sorcerer, Vaegar, a long time ago.

Unknown to Numen, Gramfyre was going to change his life forever. The discovery of Gramfyre showed he was the true heir to the golden throne but word soon got to King Robar about it and he arrived with his army to wipeout their entire household. With the help of the Gramfyre, Numen was able to escape alongside Tristan, Joe the savage and few other friends as his father; Lord Viktor’s castle was razed to the ground.

The deformed, depraved and cannibalistic King Robar was as wicked as he was sadistic, and also had his eyes on the golden throne.

Sitting on the golden throne at the Imperial Palace, built within the vast walled city of Chrysos, was Emperor Gregor Sylva in company of his two sons, Crown Prince Edgar Sylva and High Prince Autem Sylva. The shrewd Autem conspired with some barons and assassinated his father and brother in his ambition to become the emperor.

The inordinate ambitions of these men will eventually pit them against each other as well as Numen. Who will defeat all to claim the golden throne in these endless battles?

The violence, bloodletting and gore that took place in the book were well detailed and quite gripping, which gave it the feel of a motion picture. Reading through the pages gives similar thrills like watching Game of Thrones, incidentally appears to have similarities in plot.”

MY NEW BADASS SUPERHERO

One of the main characters in my new superhero book will be cowboy themed and he will be a serious badass when it comes to fighting criminals. I have been drawing inspiration from Rorschach, the Punisher, Bullseye, and Darkman while creating him. His powers include the following:

  • Super Accuracy
  • Super Marksmanship
  • Super Knifemanship
  • Super Reflexes
  • Super Combat
  • Super Agility
  • Improvised Weapon Mastery

MY NEW FEMALE SUPERHERO

The female lead of my new superhero book will be Japanese themed. She will be wearing a kabuki mask that looks like the face of a fox and she will be wielding a katana sword. I am drawing inspiration from Katana, Wolverine, and Deadpool while creating her. Her powers would consist of the following:

  • Regeneration
  • Agelessness
  • Disease Immunity
  • Enhanced Speed
  • Enhanced Reflexes
  • Enhanced Agility
  • Enhanced Jumping
  • Enhanced Senses
  • Enhanced Combat
  • Enhanced Swordsmanship
  • Enhanced Marksmanship

IMPEACH TRUMP

I am quite giddy lately as the impeachment inquiry against Trump progresses. I am particularly glad that it is moving so fast compared to how painfully slow it was during the Mueller Probe. It is moving so fast because Trump handed over the transcript of his call, thinking he could get away with it like he did with Russia. That was like a serial killer handing over his own smoking gun over to the police. Best of all is that the evidence against Trump is so overwhelmingly damning that Trump can’t come up with a plausible and coherent defense. He is reduced to lashing out, blustering, and temper tantrums. Even Trump’s allies in the former Republican Party are silent and whatever flimsy excuses they come up with are crumbling. Public support for impeachment is growing with each day that passes. At this point, the False Republicans HAVE to turn on Trump or risk political suicide. I am calling the so-called Republicans “False Republicans” because the true Republican Party is dead. Trump killed it and took over the remains. There is no Republican Party anymore; there is only the Party of Trump. Now, this impeachment will reveal where their true loyalties lie. They can serve Trump or they can serve America. They can’t serve both.

MY STRONGEST SUPERHERO CHARACTER

For my new superhero book, I am thinking of drawing inspiration for my strongest main character from the Silver Surfer, Captain Marvel, and the Justice League Unlimited version of AMAZO. Their powers will be the following:

  • Energy Manipulation
  • Force Field Generation
  • Phasing
  • Gravity Manipulation
  • Biological Manipulation
  • Chrono Vision
  • Dimensional Awareness
  • Cosmic Awareness
  • Power Bestowal
  • Telepathy
  • Illusion Masnipulation
  • Animation
  • Power Negation
  • Healing
  • Matter Manipulation
  • Super Strength
  • Invulnerability
  • Super Stamina
  • Super Speed
  • Flight
  • Self-Sustenance
  • Immortality

How my character acquired these powers will be revealed throughout the story and they will be usually lazy in their use of them.

NUMEN THE SLAYER (AMAZON REVIEW)

Numen the Slayer got a five star review a couple days ago:

“I had recently taken a nasty fall in the basement, and I needed something to entertain me while I was resting in bed. This story fit the bill. It read like a Game of Thrones lite, with interesting characters, twists, and a tale that sucks you in. The author has a pretty good grasp on world-building and it was easy to imagine the fantasy setting.

Readers take note: The ending definitely leaves it open for a series. Also, be prepared for blood and headless corpses and the like.”

KYLO REN VS DARTH SIDIOUS

Star-Wars-Episode-9-WILD-new-fan-theory-predicts-Kylo-Ren039s-death-Palpatine-alive-more

There has been leaked images of Kylo Ren battling someone powerful on board a Star Destroyer while all the surrounding stormtroopers were blown away. Some people think this mysterious opponent is Luke Skywalker’s Force Ghost while others say it is Anakin Skywalker’s Force Ghost. However, with the revelation of Darth Sidious’s return, Kylo Ren’s opponent could be Sidious himself. The First Order is essentially the Galactic Empire reincarnated while Kylo Ren is the current Supreme Leader after Snoke’s death. Because the First Order is the culmination of his legacy, it would make sense that Darth Sidious would challenge Kylo Ren for leadership of the First Order. Even though Kylo Ren will clearly become stronger in The Rise of Skywalker, he doesn’t stand a chance against Sidious. Darth Sidious has proven to match Yoda in both mastery of the Force and in lightsaber combat. It has been implied that Force users become more powerful after they experience death, which means Sidious might be even more powerful than he was when he fought Yoda in Revenge of the Sith. I can imagine Sidious saying, “Get off my throne, boy!” If Sidious defeats Kylo Ren, he may take Kylo Ren as his new apprentice, which would give Kylo Ren a chance to continue his grandfather’s work as Darth Sidious’s enforcer and executioner.

STAR WARS: PROJECT RESURRECTION

mqdefault

In the Star Wars Battlefront II video game, we became aware of a First Order program called Project Resurrection. Later, it was revealed that this program was a way for the First Order to increase the numbers and strength of their army and navy. It was called Project Resurrection because they were trying to bring back the military might of the Galactic Empire. However, with the revelation that Emperor Palpatine has returned, I think there was another aspect of Project Resurrection that we don’t know about yet. What if it was a way for the First Order to bring back the original Galactic Emperor to lead them? If this is the case, what method did they use to bring Palpatine back? A clone body? A droid copy? Or some kind of dark ritual utilized by Palpatine’s surviving acolytes? I hope we find out soon.
