Tale of the Misfits
Most, if not all, have heard of the legendary and renowned heroes and villains that populate the pages of comic books. Whether good or wicked, famous or infamous, these characters have left their impressions upon us. They have intrigued us, instituted positions in our every day lives, and earned love. Some claim that if there came a time whereupon we discovered they not only inhabit stories, but real life too, we would embrace them favorably.
But is that really the truth?
For years, disputes have arisen on whether their existence is alive and actual reality, or merely present in the realm of fiction. In either case, most can conclude there are things in this world we do not yet understand.
What if I said that these superhumans did, in actuality, exist?
What if I said they live among our numbers, masqueraded as every day society, and hidden beyond all but a bare minimum's knowledge?
What if I also said they are not all are quite like you imagine?
There are a certain, unusual group of "gifted" who are separate from the traditional superhumans, and whose powers cause them to have what we call mental illnesses. Not every individual classified as such possesses a power, but rather, there are class of superhumans whose powers produce these mental illnesses.
You will find this makes them all the harder to locate.
How many schizophrenics are as brilliant as Batman? How many with anxiety are as mighty as Thor? How many have we contacted that by all standards of their kind seemed ordinary, but unbeknownst to us, were as unique as the X-Men? What created these individuals, or gave them their powers?
Far too numerous questions pervade, and far too few answers prevail.
It is in such a day and age that some certain young men and women find they themselves are the very answers to these questions.
I am here to tell you their stories. Won't you listen?
