A Requite for Sollus: Round 2, Fight 3

 

The Rise of the Supermen

 

“You want to talk confusion.  I’ll tell you about confusion.  Perhaps the worst debacle of that day was the Count and Erebus.”

 

“The who and the what?”

 

“Nineties heroes boy.  Erebus was another one of those extreme 90’s types.  In my youth, we had heroes like Sgt. Knoxville and Blind Mike.  In your father’s time, they had vigilantes like Erebus.  It just wasn’t right for a so-called hero to have so much power and be so stupid.  I mean, you have a guy like the Count who is trying to change his life around.

 

“The Count?”

 

“Right, he was a former villain.  Had an encounter with Sollus and turned into a good guy.”

 

“Sweet.”

 

“He was alright.  A bit of a screw up, but he turned out okay.  He was trying his darndest to help those innocents.  He was in the crowd getting people to safety, when boom… out of nowhere, that black streak known as Erebus slams into him.”

 

“But why?  Why would he fight a hero?”

 

“He had just reformed.  A lot of the old crowd still knew him as a villain.  Plus, he was kinda screwing up the rescue and evacuation process.  It looked like he was killing people right there with Korgos and Poisonus.  The Count and Erebus… that was a nasty fight.”

The most powerful evil? I didn't know Quietus/Raya Sayang was involved.

 

Quietus right? Right, vets?

Well Quietus hasn't been around for awhile but Sayang could be the the big bad right now. It would be cool to see Sayang go up against the Syndicate.

I actually like both of these characters a lot. They excel in two different ways, to me anyway. I like the idea of both.

 

Erebus is a great read for 200 word count character. There's a lot of descriptive scenes in there, but unfortunately they tend to draw away from the character. I know the feel of the room but less about Erebus. It would've been nice to know just how bad he was.(This is what I wanted to do with my character actually) However, the writing is great except for some minor errors. 

 

The Count was good. It wrote a character that I'm sure I would want to win in a movie, a character I can root for. The writing is alright. The only thing I don't like is the last power description. It really turned me off from the character. What I'd like to see in the future is if The Count loses his powers, and how he manages without them.
