In comic books, some characters believe that “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility,” whereas others find that “With Great Power Comes Great Perks,” leaving those who lack power to often believe that “Power Corrupts.”
For this contest you will be creating a story about power; more specifically, a story involving a protagonist and antagonist’s relationship with their discovered superpower. Unlike most other CCC's this will require creating two original characters, both either having the same superpower or very similar powers. Use your creativity to show how the power can be used for good or evil. Shazam and Black Adam, Wolverine and Sabretooth, Spiderman and Venom, or the Flash and Zoom are all good examples of what I'm describing.
Word limit is 2,000-4,000. The deadline is June 8th, 2015 at noon (New York time).
Edit: Because I'm worried there won't be enough entries, I'm going to change the word limit and extend the the deadline one week. The new word limit is at least 1,500 words and the new deadline is June 15th, 2015 at noon (New York time).
