"How... "COUGH" Does it feel?" The senator asked as he lay on the floor. Blood gushing from his mouth. "How does it feel to know that the only reason people recognize you is because of the death of 600 people?"
"I..." Night Thrasher said as he stood above the senator. His right hand covered in blood. The other hand holding a bottle of alcohol. "I don't know what you mean..."
"You're all terrorists. ALL OF YOU!" The senator spat. "You're all psychopaths in spandex who run around fighting for truth and justice!"
"You're wrong." Night Thrasher said with a smile. "I'M the psychopath in spandex! Everyone else..."
"You in the trench coat! Step away from the senator!"
"They're just psychopaths WITHOUT the spandex!" Night Thrasher muttered as he turned around. 3 Police Officers awaited him. One of them carrying a camera. Night Thrasher smiled beneath his mask as he dropped his bottle on the floor.
"Please god help me!" The senator said in terror.
"My name... is NIGHT THRASHER! AND I APPROVE TERRORISM!"
The police officers looked at each other awkwardly.
"Of course by terrorism I mean super human terrorism! You know... people like THIS asshole here who say that superheroes like me or... Spider-Man are really a bunch of Nazis preparing to kill the president. So... now he wants to create a... what? Super Human Registration Act? Well... to that I have only ONE thing to say!"
"You're a real idiot you know that?" Tom Foster asked as he looked at Dwayne through the cell door.
"I have... no idea what you're talking about..." Dwayne said as he held a cold towel to the side of his head.
"Were you drunk?" Tom asked. "From what the cops said afterwards it sounds like you were drunk."
"I have... run into a few problems in my life recently..."
"Being responsible for the death of my brother's one of them right?"
"That's not what my shrink tells me!"
"Seriously! You're not helping the Hero community's image here! You do realize that you were being filmed live right?"
"Because I don't care what you guys think about me! I don't care what anyone thinks of me! What I do care about is what the PUBLIC thinks about you guys!"
"So... beating up people who think we should unmask is a good thing?"
"Wrong! It's the BEST thing! Pay checks? Paid Vacations? What are we? Government agents?"
"And they want our identities? How about... HELL NO!"
"You sound like Bill."
"I should hope so!"
"You think beating them up is going to help? It really isn't! It's going to make them even MORE scared! Which is what we don't want!"
"Well... maybe you don't."
"After your little stunt last night over 2 million people logged onto the internet and searched the topic "Night Thrasher" After that a poll shows that less then 50% of people approve superheroes!"
"Dwayne. You psychopath. Somebody wants to talk to you."
"Hello Dwayne." Tony Stark said as he walked in front of the cell door.
"We need to talk."
