Superhero Support Group by D. M. Larson
(Spotlight comes up on a Superhero, Speedo, sitting in a chair. A figure sits near him but in the darkness.)
I'm fast... so fast no one can see me. I thought I had something special... something I could help people with, but it ended up being a joke. Everyone started calling me Speedo. That's one of them guy's swim suits... not a flattering one either... Have you seen a guy in a speedo? Yuck.
How fast are you?
You know that pen that was in your pocket a second ago? Here it is.
That is fast.
How about a chocolate fudge candy bar... wait... with almonds.
(Speedo holds it out to her.)
That's what everyone wants me to do... fetch stuff... I should be called Errand Boy.
And that's why you want to get rid of your power... this burden that haunts you... it ruins your life.
I can do that for you... I can take away this hardship in your life... this curse... forever.
*Dramatic superhero music*
