What if when you do eventually return to the game you have lost all your special powers. Not just Super Villains occasionally best you but now average joes are giving you a bashing.
Where once the ladies swooned to see you in action, now we cringe as your foot gets caught in your cloak as you take another pratfall.
Where once below that half mask was the iron jaw of a dashing hero, now lies the double chin of an old soak. The beer belly that causes your lycra top to ride up exposing your hairy navel, the discoloured sweat patches under your arms that show how out of condition you have become.
Maybe it would be best to leave us with our memories.
