Unless you want to hand yourself over to Uncle Sam. No, not the World War II era Augment with mind control powers, but the U.S. government – specifically the D.O.D.’s not-so-aptly named Project Peacemaker. Oh, and once they’ve powered you up and tagged you into inventory, you can forget about them paying for college.
Superheroes? Please. They’re all weapons with one mission – wreck my tender teenage years and make my initiation into adulthood a suicidal mission to do what my weaponized father couldn’t: rescue my mother from a psychotic super genius.
