Earth 739

Post by jkjones21 » Fri May 31, 2013 12:28 am

Richy always loved reading comic books growing up. His favorite stories revolved around time travel and alternate dimensions, with different versions of established heroes popping in to shake things up.

He just had one complaint: all the bad stuff always happened in the alternate timelines. The hero would pop up in another time with familiar faces in new configurations, and something traumatic would happen. It was narrative convenience; you hurt the throwaway versions, never the real heroes. They were protected because the books followed them.

When his doppelganger appeared and shot him, Richy’s dying thought was, “I didn’t expect that.”

You got to be careful with those alternate dimensions. Good twist.
