I have an idea for a new “comic book” superhero named Electron. Electron is everywhere at once and is in all possible states at all times. Electron is simultaneously male and female (and all other possibilities!), every sexuality, nationality, race, creed, and religion. Election possesses every possible superpower at the same time. The rub is, just like an electron (or other subatomic particles), when Electron decides to appear at a specific position, all of the possibilities collapse into definite ones based on probabilities. One time Electron could be a Jewish, gay trans male with the ability to stop time, the next “they” could be a Buddhist, bisexual female with the ability to read minds.
The satiric possibilities are literally endless. This needs to be a comic book series, a streaming show, and a movie franchise with the inevitable theme parks in California, Florida, Paris, and Beijing.Published in
