Modern-Day Heroes

Just a bit of silliness that came to mind last week. Enjoy!


“FOOLS! NO MORTAL CAN DEFEAT ME!!!”

“Umm, actually, about that? We did some research into that prophecy: it says ‘No man or woman shall defeat you.’”

“AND THUS I AM INVINCIBLE, FOOLISH WORM!”

“Well, not quite. See, they’re genderqueer, xie’s agender, she’s intersex, and I’m neutrois.”

“...WHAT?”

“Let's just say that gender’s a social construct and there’s been a lot of progress over the past few decades. Between the four of us, we figure at least one can get around that prophecy of yours. GET HIM!”

And thus was the Ancient Evil defeated, once and for all.
