I knew that I wanted to do a superhero story and in the panicked clusterfuck that was me writing this early last Saturday morning, I decided I’d do an affectionate not-exactly parody of Tokusatsu shows. You know. Like Power Rangers.
The leads in in these shows are usually either brooding pretty people with a mysterious past or hot-blooded “FUCK YEAH JUSTICE!”-types and so I wrote Rhett as a schlubby jerk-with-a-heart-of-gold who fills you in on the backstory and would never freely admit he likes his job… it was funny to me at the time, okay?
NEXT WEEK: RHETT’S HEROIN’ SUIT! STUFF STARTS HAPPENING! MONSTERS! PUNCHING! OH GOD PLEASE KEEP READING!
