Garbeldina (for Billi)

She was Garbeldina, destroyer of worlds.

And the other super-villains constantly mocked her. They were relentless.

Because, awesome though it was, the power to destroy a world is oddly specific.

After all, if she destroys the whole world, what’s phase B of her plan?

And really, she couldn’t even threaten it. She lived in the world, all her stuff was there, when she threatened to destroy it all, it rang somehow hollow.


So she was treated as a punch line, and the world was a joke at her expense.

Because everyone knew she’d never do it.

Until she did.
