stalkling sidekick to sin stalker

i love everything about this.

the powers~ the costume.

the cape.

~soaring through the sky.

the city.

all the people

i love being a hero.

i love paragon city.

why don't you ? . . . so why don't i live here ?

> sigh <

huh ?

the justice~knights base. the war room.

why don't you live here then ?

you mean move to paragon city ?

oh ? explain it to me then.

it's not that simple.

i have a life back home, family, friends, classes . . .

my girlfriend and i are finally back together after all this demon stuff.

which is quite amazing~

~given i was possessed by a demonic spirit, did alot of bad things and~

~then thanks to the justice~knights, was depossessed and after the demon spirits gone, i still have his powers, and she~she . . . can over look that.

she still loves me even with part of me being demon. . . ~ish.

things with her and everything else are starting to look up. i can't just leave that all behind.

you're here, now.

there's a difference between living there and using the ship a few times a week to teleport me across the country to paragon. do my hero

thing then take the teleport back home.

you could just reverse that. well technically i'm not in paragon city now.

you know what i meant.

no and its not just that. where would i live ?

there's always~~

~~and no way. i'm not relying on that anymore.

what would i do for money ?


I mean. . . i can't stay "stalkling the sidekick of sin stalker" forever, you know.

don't get me wrong~

if it wasn't for all that training as "the sidekick , i wouldn't have learned to control my powers or~

~or how to be a hero.

it's just . . .

what does your girlfriend think ? I am sorry. We can do the picnic later. i just need to be a man and stand on my own two feet some day. and I don't think i can if i am always "stalkling"

i think she's proud of me but . . .

I really have to go now. I promise i'll make it up.

i'm sorry.

>sigh< I know. . .

~i can tell she gets frustrated when it cuts into the "us time"

she's fine with the danger ? uh . . .

I love you . . .

well . . .

i don't think she really gets the danger part.

it's not quite "real" to her yet.

it'll hit her one day and then what'll you think she'll do ?

... he he he . . .

it's not like how everyone thinks of it.

the emergency teleporter system~

~ heroes can die. ~they don't get that heroes can still die.

~or if you die too quickly to push that button or . . .


or your arms are ripped off before you know what hit you~

if that device gets broken . . .

~or simply just pass out.

even in paragon city, even with an emergency teleporter system ~ or if that button is out of reach when ~


and they do.

heroes show up out of no where, act all full of themselves,

~like the fate of the world depends on them and only them~

~and then they dissapear never to be heard from again.

ohmygawd! ohmygawd! ohmygawd!

i bet i could one~shot it.

run !

either they get scared and run~~

no, really ? you sure ?

idiot . . .

~or lose interest in being a hero~

~or die.

none of them realised . . .

they should have praised me, worshipped me. . .

i'll show them. . . i'll show them all !

the news likes to downplay and avoid the "unconfirmed" hero deaths.

editor note~ frame 2 and 3 done by ** sparky from "spectacular sparky" available at www.cohcomics.com

. . . i don't know. so . . .

when it hits her ~ what do you think she will do ?

david . . .


. . . she'll want me to quit.

i love this city.

i love being a hero.

that was amazing!

you saved me ! thank you ! it's the most amazing place ever.

feeling needed. helping people.

it was my pleasure miss.

the smiles on their faces.

say . . . you wouldn't happen to be single, now would you ? wha~~

~because i have this beautiful young grandaughter at paragon university.

oh well . . . what a nice young man.

i, uh . . . got to go ! hero stuff !

let me show you a picture.

i really wish i could live here and be here all the time . . .

. . . but i can't.

because, you're in love . . .

yeah . . .

because i'm in love.

being a hero is a part of you.

and its probably going to be harder for her than you realize.

.grr. . .

she needs to accept that. . .

it's one of the hardest.

harder than it was to accept your demon~ness.


yeah . . .

and you need to realize you have three loves in your life. three ?

this city. . . her. . .

and being a hero.

it's not fair to her.

i know . . . but maybe~~

~~ every hero gets to this point in some way or another.

. . . just because you want to go home each night and hold them in your arms.

it just all depends on how long they can deny themselves the truth.

being selfish and putting their lives in danger . . .

kiss them. love them.

did you ever~~


a long time ago . . .

she was my true and only love.

and my denial almost got her killed.

kh . . .

we need to talk.

hey love~~ ~~what are you doing in costume ? i thought we agreed it was over.

after what that monster almost . . . he even ripped out some of my hair . . . it is over . . . oh . . . you didn't mean being "sin stalker" did you ? i can't quiet the cries for help that are in my head. people in pain . . . this city . . . maybe this entire world.

i can feel their pain screaming in my mind.

I'M SORRY . . . BUT . . . WHAT ABOUT . . . don'T . . . DON'T you love me ? >SIGH< I'M SORRY . . .


i can't just ignore that.

you have to talk to her.

it's not fair to her.

i know . . . i keep

hoping something will happen and make it work for us.

yea . . .

hope is a good thing but you need to be logical

sane , rational thought.

it's either her or being a superhero any idea which one you'll choose ?

i have no clue . . .

i guess i'll decide when i see her.

the moment of.

we need to talk.
