A man wakes up in a dumpster. He can’t remember his name or how he got there, but he discovers incredible things about himself: he can stop bullets with his chest, he can bend metal with his hands, and he can fly.
He has superpowers…but is he a superhero?
Originally published in Challenging Destiny, “The Man Who Mistook Himself for a Superhero” is also available in the author’s collection Ooter’s Place and Other Stories of Fear, Faith, and Love.
Praise for “The Man Who Mistook Himself for a Superhero”:
“After some very funny, sometimes poignant encounters we discover why [he] is able to do what he does. And what happens to guys who think they are superheroes—but aren’t. A very appealing story.” (Tangent Online)
