In comics, a superhero will die and then, of course, will be brought back to life. I have never read any exploration of what the character would go through being brought back to life. So, I have decided to write it…enjoy. LB
Afterdeath: An Introduction. Missing the Light.
I was one of them. Above everything, everyone. A cape. A supe. A hero. I fought for the typical things we fight for. Truth. Justice. All of that.
But, like a normal human, I died.
It was a violent death. Hazard of the job, I guess.
I remember falling- really falling. Wishing I was one of those that could fly. I’d lived through worse, so I thought I could take it.
Then everything went black. I knew I was dead.
That’s the thing, I knew I was dead. I was cognizant of the fact that I was no longer alive.
And, like a super hero, I came back to life. Or I came back with the living. Either way, I’m not who I was.
I’m not the hero I was. But I’m trying.
