"He saw me as his hero, but I'm nobody's hero."
At least that's what I tell myself. My name is Eric Cayden, and I'm a man with some pretty extraordinary abilities. It's because I have these superhuman powers, my best friend, Jordan, sees me as hero material. I'm not the only one in the world with special abilities, of course. Some people have already stepped up to the plate and made themselves martyrs, but I'm not about self-sacrificing for the greater good and all that crap. Not anymore. I've already bled for my country. Now, I just want to live a normal life in the shadows and make a lot of money doing odd jobs on the side. Is that too much to ask? Well, according to my friend, Jordan, I'm destined to be something better than a glorified errand boy. He thinks I have a higher calling. He thinks I can be a hero. Well, I'm not too sure about the hero part, but I do hate it when bad people get away with doing evil things. So maybe, just maybe Jordan has a point. We'll see, won't we?
Warning: This is a novelette serial series that will be coming at you fully loaded with hot, gay sex. Yes, there will be all kinds of bodily fluids splashing and squirting in all directions with each episode. Expect body parts to be sliced, diced, gouged, and even ripped apart because I don't half step. This is a series intended for adults only, who want a superhero that loves to play dirty... and by dirty, I mean grimy as hell.
I can tell I’m going to love this series! Who doesn’t love a vigilante? Eric/ Cobra has a soft spot for those in need… more so those who are getting their butts kicked and are defenseless. That’s how he met Jordan after all. Jordan is a wiz with computers and a friend with benefits for Eric.
What I loved most about this story is Eric/Cobra isn’t one of those vigilantes who lets you talk him out of doing what should be done. He kills the bad guys. He’ll convince them he won’t, take all the shiny stuff, and then kill them. It’s justice in a Batman meets Deadpool and has a baby named Lucifer kind of way.
This is set up in episodes, just like all of Nicholas’s work. Origins, episode one, really thrusts you into the story and we follow Eric’s POV even though Jordan has a lot to say. I adore him! It’s funny, hot, slightly dark but not as dark as Nicholas Bella has written in the past. I have no doubt Eric and Jordan are going to come face to face with the stink of the city and also have no doubt that it’s going to be amazing.
This is a wonderful kickoff to this new series.
