But he gives too much. He can't draw a line between his heroics and his own life. So when he meets a girl, she wants to look after him. She wants to tell him to be selfish.

About the Author
My father lulled me to sleep with physics lectures. My mother took me to libraries to give other people a chance to tell me to be quiet. When I came of age I left the big city lights and moved out east to seek my future amongst words. I write genre stories. That means my lies are a little more fantastical, and sometimes feature unicorns and monsters.

Right now there's a trend of artists taking Disney princesses and giving them unhappily ever afters. Like the Little Mermaid winding up as an exhibit at Sea World and Cinderella drinking away her sorrows at a bar. The Homeless Hero does the same thing with a superhero. It takes the idealized icon of a man with a cape and spandex suit, and asks, But what would it really be like if some guy just had this irrepressible compulsion to help people... and the super powers to do it? He probably would be a head case. So yeah. This story was kinda awesome. You should read it.
