It was supposed to be the perfect night. I had reached the height of my popularity in the city. I had stopped more crime in a week than the police department had in a year. I had just been interviewed by Lisa Jones, a reporter for the 8 o’clock news, when I decided to show off a little and fly her around the city. The experience took her breath away. I could feel a connection starting to form between us. I decided to fly higher so that she would cling tighter to me. Hey! Superheros have needs too; and I had never felt this way before! It was great.

That is when I discovered my weakness. Superman had Kryptonite, The Green Lantern had the color yellow, I had love.
My powers failed me completely and we plummeted towards the ground…
