Reject Hero is the story of Zeke Collins, a middle-aged man who acquires powers and abilities beyond those of normal men, becoming part of the superhuman community. He wants to be a hero, but his peculiar powers are not exactly hero material. The heroes don’t want him on their side, not after he activates his powers near them in a fight. Everyone hates him when he uses his powers, even villains. Civilians hate his alter ego so much, they forced a name on him that he can’t escape. This is the story of the super-person, ‘Strangest’
This is my second web fiction. Well, third if you count a fan fiction with an original main character I did for Worm.
This time around, I am going to aim for a mostly continuous timeline of story arcs, rather than jumping forward in time after each ‘book’. Lots of other things I’ll be trying to manage as well, based on what I have learned on Symbiote and from some of the lecture resources I have been watching. Specifically, I will also attempt to let my readers discuss amongst each other a little more and explain things personally a little less. I will also be trying to let the characters’ language, perceptions, and actions define the world more, and the narrator do less.
