The Flying Man

I am not sure how I missed this when it came out other than to say the internet is a big place.

The filmmaker, Marcus Alqueres, has successfully made a short film that is captivating and creepy.  It is a twist on the superhero as vigilante from the bad guy's and the news' point of view.

I want more.  He set up a Facebook Page, and added a page to his site, here, but it I don't see any hint about more to come.

To be honest, the film feels like something from the Sovereign Universe, I felt the same shock as I did when the Washington Monument turned black in Brave Men Run.

I like the idea of hero as monster.  It is a fun way to tell a story.

A new superhero is coming, only this time it's on his terms. Will he still be considered a hero?
