This is my submission to the Writer’s Cafe contest where the theme is Marvel Fanfic
Let me read it to you!
I’ve never understood why Marvel passed me by when chronicling the adventures, missions and triumphs of superheroes.
I’ve led an exciting and fulfilling life. I once rescued a cat from a tree. Well, it was more of a bush but I had to stand on tip-toes. I helped a lady get back on her feet after she fell to the ground. The fact that it is was I that tripped her did nothing to lessen the benevolence of my actions. Only yesterday I turned a snail back onto its belly having found it upside-down. The list of my heroic accomplishments is endless.
Given my suave seniority, I guess I could be another Silver Surfer, or even Iron Man Mk.2, though, at my age, I’d probably be going a little rusty! I spend ages on the Web, so how about Spiderman the Second!
By the way, I once went to a fancy-dress party as Shreck. I painted my face with green food colouring. I had to take a week off work whilst waiting for it to fade away!
Where was I? Oh yes, if anyone from Marvel is reading this, I am available should you need a new superhero to boost your ratings.
Your Stalwart Septuagenarian, your Pugnatios Pensioner awaits!
