I'm the guy that which does Love and Capes.


  1. Yeah, but moms are supposed to think that.

  2. Before he got powers?
    well thats a fun hint ^^

  3. Just read all the way through (after coming from Hero Business) Definitely coming back!
    And awwww for awesome mums being awesome.

  4. @Jasae Bushae: Yeah, I thought so too. I sort of assumed it was a “powers from birth” situation, but now…

    You know what, I think it’s cooler not knowing, and being curious. I’m sure a whole bunch of theories will pop up, and those’ll be fun to think about.
    Obviously, it’s up to Thom, but while I think knowing -too- much about the characters can be a problem sometimes, this isn’t really a cutting edge dark and gritty superhero story, it’s fluffy and romantic, so I think I’ll be fine with whatever origin, no matter how stupid I might normally find it.

  5. Awww! No one loves you like Mom! 🙂

    Not to say there is anything lacking about a spouse who loves you romantically for the rest of your life, but Mom loved you from the day you were born, and will love you for the rest of her life. :’)

  6. It’s actually been mentioned before that he wasn’t born with his powers. He got them about 10 years ago.

  7. Well, he first put on his costume and became The Crusader about 10 years ago, but he probably got his powers at least a bit before that. He would have needed some time to learn to use his powers and then to decide what he wanted to do with them. Heck, he might have had his powers for years before becoming a superhero.
