So I think I came up with an early version of this idea a while ago. I was bullied by Christians at one point in time, and I started to write a short story about a superhero named Captain Cynical who came to a church identical to the one I was bullied at and pointed out to the people all of their hypocrisies. Anyway, I'm thinking of using that name for this character, who I'm planning on making somewhere around my age (I'm 20, he'll probably be 21/22). Towards the end of high school, he defends a gay kid being bullied because of his orientation (I figured that would get bonus points since that sort of thing is a big issue at the moment) and decides to become a superhero (with a costume and all) and fight bullies. However, there is a dark side to it (because dark stories are cool!). Occasionally he murders bullies instead of simply beating the crap out of them. I'm not sure yet if he loses control of himself or wants to murder the people. I think I know that he doesn't really care too much. He may acknowledge that murdering people is wrong. So this character will have a very interesting psychology. He thinks stopping bullying is right, but sometimes he murders the bullies. I think that would make him an anti-villain (a character whose motives are good, but who does bad things to accomplish his/her goals). I haven't got too much beyond that. I'm thinking that there will probably be a supervillain to his superhero. Ultimately the piece will be a sort of dark comedy (in what I have written so far, in which the protagonist is retelling the past, there is a lot of sarcasm, poking fun at society, and there will be black humor I suppose) and a satire of society.
