Heroes and Villains - X - Gotharella
Across the street I found the next superhero. Gotharella wore a veil, though it merely obscured her beauty rather than hiding it completely.
MINDSWEEPER: I hear you were in love with a superhero. What happened?
GOTHARELLA: I've… it… didn't… I… part of the power I have…
M: I don't understand.
G: I consume sadness. It's a difficult process, and sometimes it has brought me close to death.
G: You understand how awful you feel when you're sad. Imagine for a second, that you have in your head the sadness of an entire city. A country. A continent.
M: I have no idea how much that would hurt.
G: Projecting it can kill.
M: And you were worried you'd turn into a killer?
G: No, it's not that, I was making him happy, and that was sapping both of our powers. It was better for us to be alone.
M: That's really sad.
G: That's my point.
