How did Bruce do this for so many years? Then I remember. He did it with discipline. Willpower. Psychosis. And the painkillers that are about to shut his liver down for good. I’m congratulating myself for getting out while I’m still young and can hopefully recover…when I remember something else.

Dad thinks I’m too short. My Sensei thinks I’m too “girly”. But just like the principles of Jujitsu–I use their expectations against them. That will be their weakness. Not mine.

Let them believe they’re closing their grips on a shrinking violet. And when their guard is down and their pride is rising…let me kick their butts up around their ears.
“ I mean, I can't miss… I’m on a team with super-humans. And one god, in case you’ve forgotten. And… I gave up a lot for this life. I could have been happy with Bobbi.

And that’s why I never miss.”
