Okay, so before I start this probably 95% completely opinionated but I would really like some feed back and overall help with this.
I’m writing a story where everyone has a specific power or a gift that is a result of their persona (one could have a fiery will power and develop fire manipulating abilities, another could suffer from mental illness and may feel empty inside thus manifesting black holes, so on and so forth).
I have a villain who can warp reality: I’m still trying to figure out how it connects to his persona and the basis of how he manipulates it.
If anyone can help with that as well would also be appreciated.
Bonus point: I’d like to pay homage to iconic characters from media, comics and anime and give him a catchphrase that jumpstarts or comcludes his ability like:
- The Rumor from The Umbrella Academy who warps reality by suggestion (starting a rumor) says “I heard a Rumor...”
- Magane from Re:Creators who warps reality when someone believes a lie she tells and at after they do she says “A lie about a lie always turns inside out on itself”
- Kumagawa from Medeka Box erases reality by saying it’s “All Fiction”.
My real question is how can I give this character a really cool one liner that activities his reality warping powers? Is there any real world sources I could take from? I really think it’s cool and would love some feedback on an iconic line the character could say before causing serious damage. Any suggestions or opinions are gladly appreciated!! Thank you!!
