I believe in wonder women and super men. This I believe.
When I was little, I read Spider-Man, Captain America, Batman, Transformers, Ninja Turtles and many more action comics. I thought then, and still believe now, everyone has a super power—be it good or bad.
There was always a chance that good would triumph or evil could conquer. I realized when an evil power was close to usurping the subjective good power, super people empowered the protagonist to slay the evil. For example, Tommy Lee Jones empowered Will Smith to beat the aliens who tried taking over the Earth; and Robin empowered Batman to beat Poison Ivy. I now believe, through empowerment, good will always conquer evil. I believe my youthful curiosity fosters my super power, O-I: an Open-Imagination, which in turn gives me hope for a dynamic tomorrow.
I swear, a decade ago, I dreamed of a better future for me, which has allowed me to make bold decisions. When I was 9 years old, I asked a judge to become a ward of the state because I knew evil would consume me if I chose to live with my abusive and drug-addicted birth mother. I then needed to wait for someone with super powers to swoop down into the ghetto and lift me up. There were days though I grew hopeless waiting and became chagrined by harsh realities: the death of the loved ones. But before I lost hope, Wonder Woman and Superman collaborated to adopt me. They titivated me with opportunity and life lessons—a good power rescued me from falling into the morose hustle tendered by an opposing evil.
Now I soar like a bird into the air with grace and eloquence. However, I work to fight injustice and prevent the most major evil power: Large government plagued with narrow thinkers and selfish material-driven Whigs who are unimaginative and use language that pierces only the air, thereby maintaining a static status quo and conditioning society to believe in a top-down approach.
Perhaps, as always, I see a better tomorrow for the America I love, but she needs more super people to create real, extensive, meaningful change. I am but only one super person. The world needs the Avengers, “righters of wrongs,” to convene and collaborate and empower each other to beat surfacing evil powers before we lose our individual strength. These Avengers can and must form the fountain of good and pool their powers just like the colorful men and women in Power Rangers.
The Avengers must transform the irrational into the rational; think swiftly and act boldly; support and extol utilitarianism; and use their super powers, together, to collaborate and ameliorate the future. If not, all super powers will be destroyed; evil will conquer; hope will be terminated; and America will no longer be super. This, I strongly believe.
