Flash Fiction Challenge: Superdude

SuperDudeHere at IU, we are always trying to make things better. I know, we’re already so awesome – how is that possible, you ask! We’ve just migrated to a newer, lightning-fast hosting provider . Unfortunately, some complications with commenting arose during our site migration. So, due to popular demand, here is a re-run for you. Thank you for your patience!

This is one of the inmates I met on my little adventure to the asylum. Everyone called him SuperDude.

Most of the time, he seemed as regular a person as you’d ever meet. Once in a while, he would put on his cape and his “helmet of invisibility,” and he would stand watch like this.

I thought it quite amusing until the riot back in November. He showed us all something that day.
