Comics: Once Upon a Trope

Spirit Crusher


A minion is standing over the hero with a blade to their throat. The villain is standing nearby.

Villain: Wait! I can’t kill our darling hero so soon.

The villain makes a dramatic crushing gesture with their fist.

Villain: First, I must crush their spirit!

Hero: Do your worst.

The hero is sitting on a simple chair, a hand on either shoulder pushing them down. In front of them is a glowing screen. There is a look of dismay on their face.

We see the screen. Twitter is pulled up.

      My partner did a 16 page paper on the horrors of the YouTube comments section… That’s probably worse than anything Twitter can offer
