So I'm writing a gag comic about a superhero blessed with a plethora of abilities collectively called "Omnipotence" but with it comes two catches.
- Everything that is directly or indirectly affected by any of his abilities will be fixed if broken after a couple of second. All living organisms are excluded from this rule.
- This is what the question is about : Everytime he uses his powers, Everything connected to that specific event from 30 minutes to the moment he switches off his powers are wiped from the memories of every single person involved. He calls this the "Flashbang" effect.
In essence, after every problem he solves, all evidence and memories connected the problem he solved disappears. Like, it never even happened in the first place.
So, if he jumped infront of a moving vehicle to save an old woman being crushed by it:
- The dent in the car will be "fixed", all the broken glasses from the windshield will return and fix itself. All after a couple of seconds
- Everyone who saw this happen will lose complete memory of it even happening.
In the end, he is always forgotten.
To my question. I do understand that this a gag comedy comics, but I'd like to get this concept right, since most of my world building will be centered around it.
How will this forced Memory loss work?
