Citizens of Kansas City, Kansas, a superhero walks among you -- but not for long. The World Superhero Registry (didn't Captain America just fight superhero registration?) says a female crime fighter named Nyx guards the streets of KCK but will soon move to New York.
who mothered the gods of sleep and death.
Here's a brief bio from Nyx' MySpace profile:
After the jump, more about KCK's mysterious hero -- and she speaks!
"I am Nyx, masked protector of the night...
Like the night, I cannot be proven or disproven to certain degrees;
and also much like the night, when morning comes there will be no trace
It's impossible to define but I feel a certain degree of loyalty to
every being that inhabits this earth, a compulsion to watch -- to
help -- to protect.I respect all RLSH [Real Life Super Heroes] of every sort, it's not an easy life we've chosen but we've chosen it nonetheless."
Alas, what's a hero without an arch nemesis? Sadly, Nyx' profile says she has none.
Nyx has also posted videos on YouTube, but none record her heroics. This one is from October 2008.
I sent Nyx a message on MySpace, but she has yet to respond. I understand. A hero's journey leaves little time for self-promotion.
