Who are you? How long have you been a superhero?
Just call me G-Money. I ain’t no superhero, or none of that corny shit. I just put in work and get done what needs to get done.
So you’re a vigilante?
Do I look like Brotherman, nigga? You must be out your rabbit-ass mind. Vigilantes work outside the law. I enforce the law, dog. Shit, I AM the law. Like Judge Dreadz, or some shit!
You said Judge Dreadz. It’s Dred.
I know. I know, saddity-ass nigga. It’s your job to ASK questions, not answer ‘em, fool.
So, how did you come to acquire your armor and your weapons?
That’s classified, dog. Just suffice it to say, the Vice Lords, the Detroit branch of the Italian Mafia and a whole lot of other niggas wish I didn’t.
So, you murder gangbangers and other criminals?
See… you about to get yourself in trouble. You’d best think five times before you speak, dog. I ain’t no goddamn murderer. I’m a killer.
What’s the difference?
Murderers kill the innocent. Ain’t shit innocent about no gangbanger, no ho’, or no snitch. And the ‘hood got plenty of all of that. But not after I’m done.
What about crime in the white ‘hoods’? Do you deal with that, too?
Naw. I want to, but…the suit don’t see the need. Unless some white boy is an immediate danger to me.
So, the suit controls your actions?
You said the suit doesn’t see a need to eliminate Caucasian criminals…
No, I didn’t.
Yes, you did. You said…
Oh… okay. So, do you read comic books?
Do you read?
Oh, you funny. I’m gon’ read yo’ punk ass you’ rights, you keep talkin’.
Sorry. So, have you read Black Power: The Superhero Anthology? The story about you – Tally Marks – is in it.
Yeah, I read it. The writer, Chris Wiltz, must be a fed, ‘cause he knows a whole lot about me and I ain’t never told him shit. He’d best be careful with that snitchin’ though, ‘cause I know a lot about him, too.
What do you know about him?
A lot. I ain’t no snitch, though, so all I’ll share is the nigga’s bio. Hold up… let me check my database… here we go:
Chris Wiltz is a screenwriter, science fiction and horror writer, and journalist. He is the creator of the acclaimed web series Semi-Dead and the writer of the hit fan film Batman: Puppet Master.

Thanks, for sharing that! So, when you beat down a…
What the… Damn! They’re here! Gotta run, dog.
Wait… what’s wrong? G-Money? Wait!
