Microfiction: Bad Superpowers

So, you all know the gimmick, yeah? A superpower but with a horrible, awful downside? Cool, cool. Then step right up and spin the wheel! You all want superpowers, right? That’s what everyone wants, right?

And there it goes! It’s so exciting! Okay, it’s slowing down now. What will it be?

Ah, it looks like it’s going to be—yes, it is! It’s the power of kinetic energy! What a cool ability.

But what’s the downside? What could it possibly be?

Oh, it causes you to explode into bloody chunks when you use it, utterly killing you and making the whole power useless?


Thanks for playing.

Who’s next?

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 


Let me hear your opinion.
