Exerpt from Veronica's famous interview with Miss Melbourne, 2 years after Impact Day.
V: So what made you decide to do the whole ‘hero’ thing?
MM: That’s an interesting choice of words.
V: You don’t think of yourself as a hero?
MM: I was more referring to the word ‘decide’.
V: You don’t think you had a choice?
MM: It’s strange that you think I did.
V: Well, you could always just walk away, live a normal life, use your powers for personal gain, any number of things.
MM: I don’t think that’s true. I mean, sure, theoretically that would be possible. But honestly, it was never an option.
V: What makes you say that?
MM: Well, look at what I am. Who I am. And look at the state of the city. Think about all of the people who live here. How could I, being what I am, not do something about that?
V: Well, you weren’t the only superhuman in the city, and none of them really stepped up like you did.
MM: No, I suppose they didn’t.
V: And now you’re the only one left.
V: Apparently? You think there are still others out there?
MM: I know there are.
V: Is there a sidekick or hero team up in your future, then?
MM: I don’t think so. I would love that, but… it’s not simple, watching over a city. It’s a lot like raising a child, you know?
V: I don’t think I follow.
MM: Everyone has a different idea of what the right thing to do is, what the best way to go about these things is. Teaming up sounds good in theory, but as soon as you disagree…
V: Is that what happened with you and the Vigilante?
V: Can you tell us what did happen there, then?
MM: I… It’s a long story.
