It's like Bridget Jones' Diary, but with a super-powered vigilante.

Mayor McCheese

We’ve got a new mayor in Evergreen City, this real estate developer guy named Chip McChesney.

I have to admit, I don’t really follow city politics very closely. I mean, I can tell you who’s on the city council and I have an opinion about stuff, but municipal politics doesn’t really grip my shit.

Having said that, I think the new mayor may be a dick. He’s a pro-business and “law and order” politician, and wants to hire a new chief of police to crack down on vagrancy and “unauthorized and unsanctioned super-powered vigilantes.” Two guesses who he’s talking about.

Part of me thinks that he’s just full of the usual election year bullshit, but another part of me smells trouble. I mean, do you remember when the Turbine City police created that task force dedicated to hunting down the Midnight Rambler? Those guys were serious, and they hounded Rambler for the better part of a year until it came out that the police chief was a salt vampire.

Maybe I’m being paranoid. I mean, I live in happy progressive Evergreen City, not cesspool of crime and corruption Turbine City. It couldn’t happen here, right?

Dude, so in your dreams. You're not some Superman-knock off. You're not even a GL or Flash-knock-off. You're a cross between Iron-Man, Spider-Man, and Batman. Except you're not rich.

ANYWAY; even in the new 'The Batman' saturday morning WB cartoon, the cops hunt him down.

I hope you beat down every cop who thinks he can do a better job than you and attacks you, though. Yeah, that'd be pretty sweet.

PS-If you were offended by who you are/aren't a knock-off of, I'm sorry. I truly am. Peace!!!
