The night was deceptively calm. The masked figure looked about him in disdain. He’d hoped there would be ligtning and thunder, pouring rain and howeling winds. Instead, the sky was cloudless and the stars shone cheerfully. A man walking his dog gave a friendly wave. the city seemed to be mocking him. The masked man glanced at the dogwalker and his shaggy mutt; with a casual salute the canine burst into flames. The horrorified owner cried out in shock his eyes glued to his beloved pets burning remains. The stench of blazing pup filled the air. With a twisted grin the masked figure murmured to himself “That’s better.”
A.N.(Authors Note) – For some strange reason I keep hearing the “That’s better” in James Marster’s voice. He really is the perfect bad guy. If you need to know who James Marsters is he played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, John Hart in Torchwood, Brainiac in Smallville, Victor Heese in Hawaii Five-O, Lord Piccolo in Dragonball: Evolution and voiced Lex Luthor in various Superman and DC shows/games. As I said, ultimate bad guy!
