The Worst Hero
At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉
I've been watching Legion again...
What if your sworn enemy (or the story's villain) is the only one who can prevent an impending major disaster?
(Some specifics for this case: By sworn enemy, I mean a person who has done something horrible, like murdering your sibling. And by impending major disaster, I mean something huge, like a plague that could kill a large number--millions--of people.)
