When I was a kid, I wanted to be a superhero...Captain America specifically. This was when I was real little...comics were my thing. I didn’t just want the powers or the glory...I wanted to be the hero. I wanted to hold up the crumbling building on my own two shoulders, I wanted to brave the flames to save the kid from a burning building. I’ve wanted to help people all my life, wanted to be the best and the strongest...I wanted to be the one others would turn to.

It’s kind of funny, really...I turned that dream into a career with the LAPD, and then that became my dream. I was good at what I did, too...I went for broke to make the busts, to be sure that I could always get the bad guy. Marcus said I had a deathwish...I’d laugh him off even though somewhere in my head? I knew I was thinking it...Captain America didn’t have a death wish. He had a calling.

Well, so did I...and I still do. These days, I guess you could say I’m a real-life superhero. I even have the superpowers to match.

Though just between you and me? There’s some days when I really wish I could fly instead.
