At times, it was hard for Blaine to think of himself as a superhero.
It just felt very self-righteous to call himself that. Yes, he did have super powers – and he did save people as well, which did make him a hero, but putting the two together…well, Blaine had always been a comic book nerd. He couldn’t really put himself in the shoes of Batman, Ironman or Thor so easily, he supposed.
It was especially weird moving to New York and essentially “moving up” in the world of superheroing. He used to do small time stuff in his hometown – saving people from burning buildings that were too dangerous for the firefighters, one bank heist, helping out the cops once and a while – but New York City was the big leagues. Westerville, Ohio was nothing in comparison. There were other superheroes here.
