I mean, first of all, let me say whichever superhero first came up with the idea of wearing a cape, he wasn't really onto anything good. The number of times I'm treading on that damn thing or I throw a punch and it ends up covering my whole head. It's really not practical - Christian Bale

See, the thing is, these stories usually start with someone's angsty monologue about how all they ever wanted to be was normal. Something deep and soulful and bitterly ironic, because it's such a small, human thing to want and yet the emotionally tortured protagonist will never be able to achieve it.

These stories were clearly never about Kurt Hummel.

Normal is pretty much the opposite of what he wants to be; he's always been to fabulous for plain normalcy. Sure, part of it is because he is totally, 100% Gay (with a capital G); he lives in San Francisco, he wears leather thigh highs and thigh length sweaters and he has fag hags that love him and a couple of really gorgeous ex's that boost his self-esteem. But it's also because he knows that he has the potential to really be someone, whether it's a top fashion designer or a star on Broadway or a fabulously hot gay singer like George Michael (and really, after seeing Wham Kurt's a bit disappointed in humanity at large that they ever thought that guy was straight because really).

And it isn't just a wish for him; a teenage dream of being famous before he grows up and becomes an accountant or something equally as dull, he knows it. He can feel, in every inch of his being that he is destined for something great, something more.

Somehow though, superhero never occurred to him.

A/N: I have no idea where this idea came from. Like seriously, no idea. My mind is a scary place and I'm going to share it with all of you. Enjoy.
