Here's the deal. Remember Apparat? It was a Warren Ellis project: a comics company that doesn't exist, publishing the first issues of four books that would exist right now, had superheroes as we know them never been created. Comics from an alternate Earth.
One of them was Simon Spector. He's a black, crazy, public, violent Bruce Wayne - think Doc Savage meeting Nighthawk and convincing him to dress like Ambrose Chase. He's usually a genius, and has invented a pill who makes him supersmart for a few minutes, taking a week out of his lifespan in the deal. He has a bodyguard, because he doesn't know non-lethal fighting styles, and a personal physician, because he keeps breaking up himself to help other people.
He's kind of cartoonish in a yes-you've-written-this-before,-Warren sort of way, but he also hits a lot of my buttons at once. Doc Savage with nootropics! Guns forged with his parents' wedding rings! He has his own skyscraper! The potential, I felt, was there.
And so was born this ridiculous plan: to complete a psych_30 challenge for a character (and an universe) that has exactly one issue of canon.
As Calvin said, I must obey the inscrutable exhortations of my soul.
