Mystery Man smiled to himself at the memory. After that he had started to believe the wisp people (there were more of them). He had been transported to a random planet and had been taught about all his powers. He could make things move without touching them, he could fly, and he could sense when people were behind him. The wisp people explained his job, gave him a very cool costume and allowed him to come up with his "superhero" persona, however grudgingly.

Slowly, his life as Chad disappeared as Mystery Man's duties took over. He was fired for not showing up to work or only showing up late and leaving early (fighting crime was taking over his time). No job meant no money, which soon meant no apartment. He wound up living at the overgrown lot on Maple and Rosemary.
