League of Missing Persons
Inspired by a ridiculous number of sources I won’t even bother to enumerate.
What if all the famous missing people came back from some alternate reality and formed a guild of pulp heroes?
Who would make the roster, and what kinds of strange abilities would they have?
I submit Fred Noonan, copilot to one Amelia Earhart. Amelia gets all the fame, and nobody remembers poor Fred, who is just as missing. His power would be “out of sight, out of mind”- nobody would ever remember him. He could sneak around, or, hell, just walk around, and get away with anything. As soon as he walked away, everyone would forget they’d ever met him.
Maybe he’d be bitter about it and be a villain, I don’t know.
Anybody else have a favorite missing person who might make the cut?
