5 World- Migraine

My name is Kerek Sjaastad. I have been with the Legion for six years, but because my powers are borderline useless I got put on “reserve non-combat duties” aka the sidelines. Now I don’t really mind, how useful is the ability to induce headaches when you’ve got Dragonmage, Colossal Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad around but it does grate on me that Gazelle and Matter Eater Lad get more respect than I do...maybe because he’s a senator but she’s a GAZELLE! But honestly you can counteract my power ibuprofen, fresh air and an apple

But I show up to all the meetings, I fly the flag, proudly wear my ring and I’m there when the galaxies in peril when they need EVERYONE but usually I’m at home watching the Archive Feed; documentaries about history from across the galaxy. I know a lot of useless stuff about a lot of useless things all thanks to television. But I’m getting bored and I want action! Well not too much action, just a bit...actually I just want to be out of the house

So I went into HQ to see what was going on. Seemed that everyone had something to do but me...typical! Then I spotted Brainiac 5 who for some reason either hates me or fears me, my guess is he hates me!

“Hey Brainiac!”

He just glared right through me

“Hello?”

“Kerek I’m very busy, what do you want?”

“Nothing really, I...”

“Okay then” and he walked off, almost scowling at me over his shoulder as he left

Green know-it-all! One day I’ll put my useless facts up against his “12 Level Intellect” and we’ll play Ultimate Chase Trivium and then we’ll see bwhahahaha! Wow that was childish. So I just wandered around HQ and I ended up in what we call the Hall of Cool Stuff. There are trophies and things in here from across the universe, even the multiverse from the Legion’s exploits. I love hanging in here and especially between the time bubble and the Time Trapper’s cloak

“Look at me I’m outta time” and then I pretended to be caught between the two. It’s stupid and childish but it makes me laugh.

“Who’s in here?!”

The cold metal voice scared the daylights out of me and I fell back into the time bubble and it hummed to life. What the? I always thought these were replicas or deactivated items not THE REAL THINGS! No way

“What are you doing in here?” asked the robot janitor gruffly

“Just looking” I replied

“Well best get out of that, it’s not a toy and not for the public”

“I’m a Legionnaire!” I protested

“Wildfire?” he asked

“No”

“Star Boy?”

“No!”

“Shadow Lass?”

“I’m a boy you bucket of bolts! I’m Migraine”

“Well you’re nobody I’ve heard of so GET OUT!

“I’ll show you” I angrily flipped some switches and turned dials and set the coordinates to my favourite place in the early 21st Century with some of the ultimate heroes of that age, Stormwatch upon their The Eye of The Storm space station “You’ll know who I am very shortly you...expensive mop”

The time bubble hummed and I shot through the timestream. It should be evident at this point I have no idea what I’m doing!

I like it so far, I like the idea of a low level super human getting in way over his head
