    Really what kind of superhero one that invades peoples privacy with a single swoop, and then pursues innocent women, and pushes them into a vulnerable position, where they can be taken advantage of. Oh wait please dont tell me his name will be seven, and he, he will teach everyone a really big lesson. But not before showing everyone a lesson. What has money and fame done to you ? Un checked power, is harmful, maybe this should be integrated into the story. Like stealing someones life and their ideas and then going out for a game, or a drink. While someone else suffers for your prideful mistakes. Go Selfish Team
