A sidekick turned construction worker.
The man who can make anyone do anything.
The teenaged products of an institute for unwanted metahuman children.
Are they heroes? Are they villains? Sometimes they're both. Often, even at the same time.
But fifteen-year-old Bliss isn't feeling very heroic right now.
Her mother has sent her away to an institute for meta-human freaks. Her father has yet to come rescue his baby girl from the freaks. And the boy she's had a crush on the past two years has finally noticed her - but he's trying to put his fist through the back of her head.
My short story "G-Child" is one of twenty brand-new stories in the dark superhero anthology Corrupts Absolutely?, edited by Lincoln Crisler. Both veteran authors and newcomers offer a unique and realistic perspective on what it's like to be a superhuman in today's day and age.
