The Empty Suit WIP

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Had an idea for a costumed vigilante in the same basic tradition as that of The Shadow or The Spirit. My idea is to make him a once vain and vapid news anchor (think Ron Burgundy) turned invisible by some kind of curse. The only way to lift the curse is to find his inner self. He decides he might do that by fighting crime, by making news rather than just reporting it. Though he is invisible he never truly uses this power, preferring to remain fully clothed (as he might say, "You know what they say-- Clothes make the man. Besides, it's too damn cold outside.") Instead, he confounds his adversaries by incessantly spouting worn-out sayings, buzz-words, and various cliches. Even more uncanny is his ability to apply any given cliche to the right situation. Example: Say he's trapped in a box. He might decide "Maybe I should think OUTSIDE the box" (probably my LEAST favorite saying). In most cases, however, he'll just annoy the bad guys to the point that they surrender just so he'll shut up.
