A Monster’s Death
by Raven Steele
“The city doesn’t need another hero. It needs a monster.”
I have lived beneath the streets all my life while a growing evil overtook the city I loved.
I’ve watched the people suffer, smelled their fear, and heard their cries for mercy.
All while they lived under the control of the ruthless man who murdered my parents.
But the time has come for me to rise from the darkness.
I’ve trained my whole life for this moment and, unlike the justice system, I will not fail the people of Coast City or the woman I fell in love with as a child, the woman who believes me dead.
But no one told me that sometimes heroes aren’t enough. Sometimes people need a monster.
