Modern gentlemen possess uncanny abilities.
I, for example, frequently catch things midair. I have developed a superhero persona, “Snag!,” who use this capability to fight crime.
Tragically, like every interesting character in graphic novels, my ability comes with constraints:
- While my startle response is acute, my reflexes under normal circumstances are worse than most people’s.
- I cannot anticipate jumping to action and will not know whether my attempt to save the day is successful until it is nearly too late.
