    Yeah! Fuck work, you're going to the movies!

    Shoving your breakfast in your mouth, you jump in your car like in the Dukes of Hazard, and pull out the driveway. You go to find the movie theater in your GPS, only to realize you're smart enough to find it on your own.

    Driving down the street to the movie theater, you spin into the parking space like in a car movie you saw while really drunk, and get out. You put on your sunglasses like a boss and walk up to the movie ticket seller chick. Or whatever.
    Non-chickflik movies:

    You wait in line for a few minutes, and buy a ticket to see Ninja Assassin. It starts in a few minutes, so you buy popcorn before going to get seated. Watching some more videos on Youtube, you learn some Krav Maga by the time the movie starts.

    Spying some nerdy looking nerds near the front of the room, you think of something. Flicking a piece of popcorn into the light, for a brief moment the shadow of a penis appears on the screen, before the popcorn falls and hits one of the teenagers on his head. He rubs his head and looks around as you flick another ten pieces of popcorn at the kid next to him. They all land in rapid succession.

    Like rain drops, but covered in salt and butter.

    As the movie begins, you slowly take in all the fighting moves. Using your amazing brain, you figure out which moves you can copy, and memorize them so you can try them after you leave the theater. Throwing more popcorn at the teenagers as you leave the room, you do a quick frontflip over three rows of chairs when nobody's looking.

    You feel the sudden urge to punch people in the face over and over, so you go outside to take a breather. WHAT ARE THESE POWERS DOING TO YOU!?

    After getting over that angsty shit, you go to your car to get a hat, when you spot five gangsters threatening some chick and her boyfriend. Not sure why the hell gangsters would be threatening people in a movie theater parking lot, you go to investigate. Asking what's going on, one of the gangsters tells you to fuck off. So you slam his head against your knee and do the upside-down spinning kick you saw before, knocking the other gangsters on their asses. Fuck yeah.

    Three of them get up and one of them pulls a gun, which you reflexively grab and hit him with. Knocking one out with a well aimed punch, you headbutt the last one onto the ground.

    Moving to ask the couple why the gangsters were attacking them, they're nowhere to be seen. They couldn't even thank you? Dicks.

    Opening the trunk of your car, you stow the two guns and buy a ticket to Red.

    The movie passes without incident, and you grin as you imagine all the cool things you can do with your guns now. Explosions everywhere!

    You climb in your car and check your phone. You have some messages from a coworker asking why you're not at the university today. You need to give a lecture on some physics to a bunch of stuck-up nerds from MIT.

    Shooting back a text message of "Because I'm the goddamn Batman", you pull out of the parking lot and begin driving to the university at breakneck speed. Memorizing a bunch of breakdancing moves, you recklessly drive using only your memory for guidance while watching videos on your phone. Pulling up to the university faculty parking lot, you get out of the car and take off your jacket, striding across campus like the badass you know you are.

    Throwing open the doors to the lecture hall, you grab your boombox from the bookshelf and turn on a good beat. The students look around confused as you begin to give the lecture, while doing the kind of breakdancing they've only seen on tv. While giving the lecture, you think of a few ideas regarding unified field theory and write your notes down on the board. You delve into a variety of various fields as your lecture stretches into much higher sciences. By the time you finish, the board is covered with equations and ideas.

    Spinning on your heels, you walk out of the room to your office. The students are in awe.

    You get some beer out of your minifridge and continue where you left off. Drinking and working, with a Bruce Lee movie playing in the corner, you cover all your chalkboards with ideas. Looking around at a noise as your coworker from before enters the room, you return to your work. He looks around at all your work.
    "'Because I'm Batman?' Have you been drinking?"
    You ignore him and keep writing away. He picks up a beer bottle and drops it in the trash.
    "I guess that's a yes? At least the lecture went well. Some of the students came and asked me some questions. They think you're some kind of genius."
    You continue to write away on the chalkboard.

    You feel really weird. Maybe you should lie down...

    Wait, where are you? Looking around, you see faces staring at you. Bright florescent lights make you turn your head and wince

    You don't get any feelings of powers from your colleague as you stealthily try to drain his powers, if any. Thinking quickly, you spin a tale of a Youtube video and divine inspiration as the car pulls away from the intersection

    "Heh. Ideas have come from stranger places. Anyways, I called the university. You can take the rest of the week off. Oh, and try and lay off the beer."

    You thank him as the car pulls up to your driveway, where your own car is parked. Fumbling for your keys, you wave and enter your house.

    You get to work right away. Going over the incident in your head, you agree with the doctor's hypothesis. You decide to lay off from the acrobatics for now, and go to work on making a program to predict stock market values. It goes slowly at first, most of it involving analyzing data, but you make progress as you work into the early hours of the morning. You run yesterday's numbers through it, and cross check them with today's numbers. A perfect match.

    Making the investments recommended by the program, you pull yourself away from the computer and climb into bed. Watching through the window above you, you slowly calculate star movements as you drift into sleep.

    You slowly rouse yourself from your slumber. It's 10:00 AM on a Tuesday. You fall out of the bed and check the stock prices. The 900 dollars you invested is now 2800 dollars. Apart from that, there's nothing else of interest.

Think of a multitude of ways the criminals could have accomplished that feat, you take in the details of the crime. Looking up more details on your laptop, and mulling over the possibilities in your mind, you come to a less-than obvious conclusion: Whoever has been robbing the banks can walk through walls.

    Trying to determine where the robber(s) will strike next, you mark the robberies on a map of the city with Google maps, and stare for what seems like hours. Thinking, calculating.

    Doing more calculations over the course of the day, you determine what time the robbers will most likely enter the bank, and from what direction. Preparing a small kit of a steak knife, two guns, three spare magazines, and a homemade flashbang you had lying around for no reason, you drive to the bank and begin staking it out. Several hours pass as you patiently wait for them to close, and continue to watch. Eventually, a van pulls up to the side you thought it would. A group of three teenagers, the nerds from the movie theater, get out the back, and pull out several duffel bags. One grabs the hands of the others, and they run into the wall and disappear.

    Exiting your car, you slowly walk towards the van. There's nobody inside, so you move towards the front and look around the bend. The superhuman runs out of the bank with a bag full of what you can only assume is money, and throws it in the back of the van. You don't make a sound as you move to the back of the van. You can almost... yes, you can sense the power emanating from his body.

    How do you proceed?

    As the Supernerd, as you decide to call him, reenters the bank, you pull the knife from your pocket and cut into their tires. Grinning, you rig the flashbang into their steering wheel with some more cutting and some clever wiring, and hide near the back of the van yet again as the Supernerd emerges with yet another bag of cash. Grabbing him by the neck, you feel something strange, but almost pleasurable. It feels good, so very good, as you drain the kids powers and he struggles to get away. Somehow, you feel like you're much more powerful now. On some level, you think that you can do what he can do. And that he cannot.

    Willing your hand out of existence, he passes through your arm and onto the ground. You glance at the knife in your hand, reflexively turning to the optimal angle to cut his throat open. He tries to speak, but the strangulation makes it hard. He only manages to spurt out "Don't".

    You stoop down towards him, as he tries to crawl away. Pushing him against the ground with one hand, you whisper a single phrase.
    >I'm the goddamn Batman
    As he struggles to figure out what the hell you're talking about, you pull him off his feet and push him along towards the front of the van at knifepoint. Pulling the flashbang out of the trap, you throw him against the wall of the vault, and phase him through with one hand. Letting go of his arm, you peek your head through and drop the flashbang.
    Pulling out before it blows, you wait a moment, and go back through the wall. The teenagers are stumbling around, blind and deaf. Perfect.

    Grabbing the bags of money from the van, you pause, before throwing them into the vault and running back to your car. You call the police.

    Apparently his power, ours now lol, was to phase anything or anyone he touched slightly off kilter with reality so as to walk through walls. This is useful, as we dont have to be naked to walk through walls now.

    The bank robbers trio's MO would seem to be guy with power phases all three into vault, and two helpers load cash into bags / prepare valuables for easy carry while power boy runs back and forth inside and out, then grabs their hands again to allow all three to leave.

    We need to start testing this new power of ours. Can we breath when we are phased? Is there an upper limit to how long we can stay phased? How much matter by volume/mass can we phase at a time?

    You spend the next day and a half experimenting with your new ability. It's too bad you didn't have an intuitive understanding of it like the kid. Maybe if you had spent longer absorbing his abilities, somehow... but that would have killed him. Would you really kill others for more power?

    But that doesn't matter. What does matter is that his, your, power is far more potent that you had imagined. He didn't seem to completely understand it, but you do. With your intellect, you understand it perfectly. It's a cognitive effort to activate it for you, unlike the instinctive response he had. When you use it, you become out of sync with other matter in the universe. It appears that the universe has some kind of meta-wavelength, or something similar. You're not completely sure yet, but it does factor into the whole unified field theory you had.

    You have found yourself able to make different parts of your body out of sync at will, or your entire body. You can't breath while doing so, but the kid may have been able to. An experiment you did was to pass your hand through the fridge door, and make the part inside the fridge unphased, while still being phased through the door. You managed to pull a milk carton out like you would normally.

    You think you might be able to do the same with living tissue. Turning on the news and drinking your milk, what you see puzzles you. The bank robbers strike again? And again, with no evidence...

    Hmm. You continue to drink your milk.

You look fucking badass, especially with your sunglasses.

    Striding out of the mall, you put down the roof on your car, and drive to the bank. The police are investigating the scene of the crime. They're wheeling a body out. Getting close to the ambulance, you make out the words "Massive internal bleeding". You can see a police badge in the corpse's hand.

    Thinking over the information you have, you try to figure out where the kid might have gone. From where the bank heists occurred, and their specific times, you trace them back to a single neighborhood. 32nd street and Taft. It's generally considered to be quiet, and is mostly upper-middle class families. Looking up anything you can, you find a recent report on the bank, confirming that that was in fact a police officer who was murdered. Somehow his organs were disrupted without any external stimuli.

    You change back into your street clothes quickly, and begin driving towards the neighborhood, as you continue to research the incident. From the various reports, you piece together the events. A single officer arrived at the scene first, and was found dead when the others arrived. The kid must have managed to escape before he got there.

    As you park near the edge of the neighborhood, you try to phase out of the car. Somehow, it doesn't work. Damn.

    You don't have any data to work with right now.

    You slowly exit your car, putting back on your suit, and approach the van. Taking the optimal route to the tires, you slash them in quick succession, and run towards the house unseen. Leaping over the fence, and grabbing the side of a tree, you swing upwards and land on the edge of a window. Opening it, you slide inside, and soundlessly step over the bed in front of you. Replacing your knife, you enter the hallway silently, glancing down the stairs ahead. The three teenagers are counting their money at the table. You narrow your eyes. They seem so calm for having just killed someone.

    One of them gets up, falling out of his chair. "SHIT! IT'S THAT GUY AGAIN!"
    "He's fucking here!"
    Your cover blow, you leap over the railing and land on your feet. A knife goes to the throat of the one closest to you, and a gun points towards the others.
    >I tried to do this the easy way. Then you went and killed someone.
    "Yeah, well, fuck you too buddy!"
    The teenager from before runs up to you and tries to throw a punch, his hand phasing as it nears your face. Ducking low, you grab him by the throat again, and begin to drain his powers. The other kid goes for your gun, and you kick him in the face. The one at knifepoint touchs your skin slightly, and you feel the power coursing through his veins. For a moment, you black out, feeling all their powers draining into you.

    When you open your eyes, before you lie the teenagers. Dead, and cold as ice. You feel yourself more powerful somehow, but the horror at what you seem to have done makes you want to vomit. You didn't mean for this to happen. And now three kids are dead. You fall to the ground, staring at your bloodstained hands.

    Your mind barely registering what you've done, you slowly remove various chemicals from the kitchen and drag the bodies into the back yard. Phasing them into the ground, you force them ten feet down, and return to the kitchen. Cleaning the mess, you finish the job and exit via the window yet again. Another car pulls up to the house, and two older people exit it with groceries in hand. A man and a woman. Feeling around with your new powers, you sense that they have abilities as well. Regeneration and telepathy. You also see a picture of them and the kids together on their computer's hard drive. They're at Disneyland, smiling and oh-so-happy.

    As they enter the house, they laugh about some joke only they understand, and call for their children. Waiting a moment, they sigh, thinking them out with friends or something like that.

    We can't undo this. We also can't let ourselves get caught. If the house security system, if any, has any footage of our time here, use the technopathy to convince the system to clear our presence. If it's not too time consuming, look like the kids killed each other in a squabble. If we can figure out what they did with the money they've snatched, let's, but we need to get outta here and soon.

    You try to pull yourself away, but the lure of the powers makes you think twice. And thrice. You watch through your perch on the window as the pair come upstairs, hugging and holding each other. One of them spots you, and you feel her probe against your mind. She gasps, and falls backwards against the closet door behind her, as you enter the house through the window. You pull the knife from your coat, and throw it at the woman's hand, as tears start to well up in her eyes. Her hand attached to the door, she starts sobbing as you grab the husband. He tries to fight back, but as you drain his powers, he collapses into a pile of dust. You pull the knife from the wall and slice into your arm. The wound heals instantly. The woman begins to hug her legs, as you bend down and pull her into the air by her neck. You feel your muscles tear and heal simultaneously, your bones become stronger, and lighter. You try not to grin, but you can't help it. As you drain the woman into a cold, lifeless corpse, you feel good. So very good. Dropping her onto the floor, you drag her through her husband's ashes into the backyard. Forcing her into the earth along with her children, you go back to cleaning the house. Placing the money back in the bags, you hide it in the backyard as well. You instantly count it all based on average bill denomination and total volume. Just over $3,000,000.

    You reenter the house, and put the couple's groceries away. They got ice cream. Rocky road. Your favorite.

    My fucking god. this is how I should play my mage.

    For now, lets take the ice cream. Then we need to try to meditate once we're home to control this hunger. we cannot let it control us.

    Let's do some science. Humanity can be the control ground, and we will be the experimental.

    You have yourself a bowl of ice cream and watch some television while you think over how to bury the evidence. Maybe you could make it look like the father killed his family to cover up the thefts? Yes, that could work.

    But you should probably test your new-found regeneration abilities first. Taking the gun, you try firing it upwards into your brain. The bullet sends blood and brains into the air with a dull bang, and you barely manage to not scream in pain. But you feel it healing, growing back. The brains splattered on the ceiling dissolve, leaving no evidence. Smiling, you go back to eating your ice cream. At least you don't need to worry about dying any more.

    You switch the channel. CSI is on. Continuing to watch it as you do the dishes, you begin framing the father. Roughing up the house a bit, you put everything back as it was before, only slightly off. Perfect. Leaving a knife in the bushes, with a bit of blood chemically altered so they can't get DNA, you exit the house via the window, and return to your car.

    Reading a few minds as you drive home, you chuckle at a few of the thoughts you hear. You check your phone. Your coworker Anastasia has called you twice to check up on you. You've always known she had a crush on you, but it never went anywhere.

    Aw well. Putting away your outfit and guns, you try mentally connecting to your computer. Your stock's total value is up to 3300 USD!

    Why are we laughing? Why are we okay with this? We were in absolute moral horror, and then we went serial-killer on the parents. And now we're eating ice cream and framing dead immortals.

    This is not good. This is not okay. We aren't Batman.

    It must be some kind of high from eating their powers that caused us to start being so...evil. We will not succumb to it again. Never again. We will spend the rest of our lives atoning for our actions this night. We will learn more about this hunger and eliminate it. We will use our intelligence for the sake of humanity.

    Alright, that power hunger thing is apparently on a scale of 0 to 1, not 0 to 10. We're going to lose control really, really easily.

    Temporary solution: avoid all people with powers.

    Permanent solution: SCIENCE our way into a giant fucking moonbase and rule the Earth from afar, that no other superhumans may ever approach close enough to tempt us.

    This is only sensible.

    Also, we need to figure out where the energy we're using to make these powers happen is coming from before we accidentally devour ourselves constantly running the telepathy in the background.

    It's ok, we still regenerate, and it seems we would have to regenerate faster than we burn energy to regenerate otherwise the regeneration couldn't possibly function in the first place

    /tg/ did this. WE did this. We kept saying how we were going to be a supervillain, and how we should kill more people, until finally we did. And when we looked into that abyss, we didn't like what was there. But there's no going back. Not now. Not ever.
