STORY IDEA #229: The Swimmer

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#229: The Swimmer

Terrible superhero idea. This is the pits. I'm picturing a hero in speedo's and one of those swimming hats but one that comes down further over his face and chin and it's all anti-hero black.

Like, 90% of the matter around us is dark matter.

The Swimmer has the ability to physically interact with it and he swims through it. So he can fly, but it's slow and it looks like he's breast-stroking through the air. He can dive underwater (under-matter), disappear and then re-emerge for a breath every now and again before going back in.
It would be quite a cool power but extremely silly looking.
