SPQR: Legion of Superheroes - 1
He didn’t want to be a superhero.
Not anymore at least.
He’d outgrown it. He’d grown up, accepted that just because you had powers didn’t mean you got to be a hero. Heroics were for the people who could control the oceans, heal with a touch, literally move the earth, shoot fire from their hands, call down lightning… fly.
You didn’t get to be a hero when your skill set was moving through shadows and talking to the dead. Not exactly inspiring talents to bring into a crisis or use to rescue civilians. That kind of thing was more likely to frighten people or be useful for investigating after everything was over and had already gone horribly wrong. He was not going to live the CSI TV shows.
