Drabble: Snake Eyes (Supervillain Origin Stories) – by JB Starre

by specklit

Yeah, Snake Eyes and I grew up together. He seemed like a normal kid back then, though.

I found out senior year that he could talk to snakes. A bunch of us were over at his place playing Halo, and Henry Watkins repeated a rumor about Snake’s girlfriend. Snake muttered under his breath, Henry started screaming, and all I can say is, it’s a good thing Snake’s pet pythons weren’t venomous.

Superpower? I don’t know about that. What’s he gonna do, contact every snake in the country and form some sort of snake militia?

Oh, wow. Seriously? The White House?

Author’s Note: Cue Indiana Jones quote: “Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?”
