In the middle of the night, a shadow is running in the darkness of lonely New York City corners, chasing criminals, helping lost souls.
Wrong Day For a Kill is the first short story in the science-fiction series Superhero Stories: The W Series. W is a superhero like no other, who struggles between the hunger for Justice and the need to use violence to achieve that very ideal of justice.
Where is W running to tonight? Who is being chased?
Meet W in the first of a long series of adventures.
In the second entry of THE W SERIES, we remove the mask and meet Guinn McGovern, the person in the black suit, the soul of the superhero who aims at bringing New York City back to justice.
Having super powers doesn’t really help Guinn in the everyday life: struggling at work, while trying to balance crime-fighting activities with a normal social life.
What can go wrong on a date night?
Some nights are memorable for W and they are filled with successes in fighting crime; during some nights W holds on to the daytime identity of Guinn McGovern, trying to deal with a normal social existence and the struggles of modern dating. This night W has to wear both hats: the job as a superhero doesn’t allow any day off, even when some truths about Guinn, and about how some of the main characters of the series became who they are, could be waiting around a corner.
Follow Guinn in a new adventure in the East Harlem neighborhood W so constantly strives towards protecting.
What will happen next?
Questions keep ravaging W’s mind today: what’s hiding behind a research center and its chief, a Professor well-known and respected in the scientific community?
W will have to fight against time to look for the answers, in a long run through febrile hours. Until something catches W’s eyes and makes everything shake.
Embark in a new adventure with W, and find out where will we go next.
Something completely unexpected at the end of last episode has brought W back several years through old memories: what happened on the fatal night when W got super powers? How did Guinn McGovern fall in the superhero trap that became life as W?
A radically different episode will open more questions and reveal more secrets on W’s past.
W awakes from daydreaming about the past to fall back to square one, where we left our hero at the end of Episode 4. But now W only has a few seconds to escape from the impossible situation fate has constructed.
How will W accomplish this mission? What will the superhero attempt to find more answer to questions from a forgotten past?
Things get really hard for W, as the events of “What Could Go Wrong” keep unfolding under the superhero’s for once powerless eyes.
Between serious threats to W’s secret identity and safety, from completely unexpected sources, and former allies becoming armed hurdles, W will have to find new ways to strive in the superhero job.
Or otherwise keep busy at night.
What is wrong with Guinn? A day at work and an evening therapy session with Jay help W surf through the thoughts and feelings of a superhero on forced vacation. What’s the point of being super if you can’t be a hero?
Guinn is also reminded of an unmissable upcoming opportunity to spy into the past, and everyone prepares to take full advantage of it.
This episode is the cornerstone of Guinn’s story so far, where not only the relationship between the person behind the mask and the superhero who wears it is clarified, but we also discover something game-blowing about Guinn’s past.
In a burning hot summer day, under a blinding sunlight, things change for W – forever?
Don’t miss this episode of W, and for the first time see Guinn for what our hero really is.
