    I don't really see the need for them considering that they're essentially just another version of Endbringers.

    Honestly if they had turned out to be the origin of the original endbringers I think they would have been a cool idea but they are super endbringers because apparently they are actually stronger. Which really doesn't serve a point.

    Fuck if I know as far I can see right now, they are not as hard to damage but contessa says they are stronger. They are bigger that's for damn sure. Ward does alot of weird shit. Like brandish barley being a functional person she doesn't seem to even think like a human and it's weird. The only thing about ward I straight up love is the fact that Victoria shard loves her and wants to help it's just funny to me.

    Taking Contesta at face value is a dumbass move for everyone involved. Obviously she's an asshole with a self destructive asshole shard.

    Makes a lot of sense considering what happened to her in Worm if you think about it. She lost everything.

    The bitch causes conflict with her mere presence. No wonder the shard loves her.

    So, hello there~

    Today I want to discuss heroes in general, meaning of this label and morality I see in this therm. How you can perceive heroes. And how it correlated with Worm-verse. Because, apparently, I found myself at impasse, triyng to write believable characters...

    Disclamer: be ready for near philosophy, Carl Jung, Zigmund Freid and all that jazz...






    So, let's start with something simple. All capes/Parahumans are broken... I think we all can agree on this. I mean broken in psychological sense, they all have issues.

    I mean, c'mon, Trigger event is pretty much moral trauma.

    And what normal people do when they have troubles? They try to resolve them, right? So-o-o, I see all this villians/heroes game like some distraction from this issues. They don't go to specialists, they drown themselves in work. And many people don't go to specialists IRL. They scared, I think. It's really hard to just pour you hearth on someone.

    So, here we are. We've moral trauma, issues that eat out our psyche and we have... power.

    And there's the game of cops and robbers for people like us...

    Let's not distracte on other uses of power (revenge, wealth, etc.) Let's talk about people what at least try to do something good.

    If you look from perspective it look hilariously alike to the club of anonymous alcoholics, you know.

    But let's get back to track. We have issues, power and there cape scene. I won't spew some platitudes like 'all people are inherently good' this is given.

    What would you do? Given meta rules of all superheroes worlds you find a mask, a costume and a new name for yourself. You choose side, establish yourself. Than you go and do something public in this getup.

    Why? Because you want to do something good. You want someone to recognise you and pat you back with thanks. I'll not judge, God forbid, even Emiya, my ideal hero did what he did from purely egoistical reasons.
    Idiot have severe Survivor Guilt and felt indebted to people he can't save in Great Fire

    And this situation create paradox you want recognition and fame, even deep down. But for some reasons you can't go unmasked. And then you create yourself Persona of your ideal hero.

    You choose a label, side. Create a mask, new Persona and go play in heroes because you want to be repaired in some way.

    Heroes in general, this label stay on the good side of PR. That all meaning I've in this label. But heroes for me, real heroes this is people that can throw their lives for a cause. It's no difference right or wrong cause. Because world like it is not white or black it's all shades of gray. 'What good for russian, death for Nazi' like we, Russians say.

    So all in all? Hero, in my believe, is someone who 'tear' their face off, someone who don't expect the recognition and gratitude and someone who ready to throw their life for the Cause.

    And I think I can describe my Hero in this picture.




    Back to Worm I think because of this reasons people so much like new Vicky, Taylor and there lot in Wards.

    And apparently I tire myself with all this typing.



    Guys and gals, it's purely my own vision of situation and my own beliefs. I write it here because I try to write believable characters in Worm-verse and I would really appreciate discussion and feedback.

    Don't be gentle)

    In case people are getting cold feet about "omg necro" even if they have a topic to discuss that's a derail somewhere else I shall post.

    Worm government sucks, anti parahuman law was stupid and short sighted and this was all because Wilbow had an anti-authority boner and released several word of gods to justify it after the fact when people started complaining.

    You can now discuss that here, prove me wrong or don't I don't care as long as worm derails get discussed in the proper place.

    After all, all mankind must be sorted.
