Master Legend & Superhero: Mirror Souls

Truth is stranger than fiction.

In Unbreakable, the movie starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, you find the hero and villain, they are symbolically a mirror. Meaning in some ways exact same. In other ways, exact opposite. Both had a rare same weakness, water. Could not swim. But were opposites as Bruce Willis had super strength, and Samuel L. Jackson had weak bones.

Master Legend and Superhero are in so many ways the complete and exact opposites of each other, in nearly every single way...

...But in a few ways, they are exactly the same.

Both were born in the late 1960's, both were in the military for a short period of time after being kicked out, for opposite reasons.

Both lived out of state and were abused by their parent and (younger?) brother. Both have severe PTSD and have reacted to it differently. Both moved to Florida and discovered the real life superhero community in 2006.

Superhero is old (though still collects godzilla toys like a little kid - thus making him on both ends of the age spectrum as being old and young) and bald. In his own words "old and bald".

Master Legend in his own words is ageless, timeless. And has long hair.

Superhero has a nice paying easy indoor job. Lives on nice side of town. Sold his car recently, bought a new one.

Master Legend works tough, outdoor jobs. Lives on seedy side of town. Does not get paid well. Lost his vehicle in an accident.

Superhero got married at an older age than most, a few years ago.

Master Legend married at an age younger than most. Was married twice, is not married now.

I think of how I met them. Superhero sent a message first with no friend request. When I read it, I thought, this guy and I are NOT going to like each other, he is going to be so pro government authoritarianism, we are not going to get along. I was right.

Master Legend sent me a friend request with no message. When we finally did speak, I thought, wow this guy and I are going to be really good friends. I was right.

Superhero was always quick to turn against me when ever anyone spoke ill of me.

Master Legend always quick to defend me when anyone spoke ill of me.

Rare exceptions where that was reversed, but at same times.

Superhero loves big names. Master Legend gets along better with homeless people. The better others speak of you, the more Superhero will like you and Master Legend will dislike you, and vice versa. When others speak ill of you, Superhero will hate you and Master Legend will like you. Superhero looks friendly and approachable but not friendly once you get to REALLY know him. Master Legend is scary upon first glance until you know him. This is odd because when I saw Superhero online, I thought he would have a grizzly voice. He had a smooth voice. I thought Master Legend would have a smooth voice, but he has a raspy voice.

Superhero loves cops. Master Legend hates cops. Superhero is pro gun but anti gun rights, Master Legend is anti gun but (I think?) pro gun rights.

Superhero does not seem to believe in God but condemns anyone who uses God for justification for doing good, but also uses the government as his measure of right and wrong. Master Legend exact opposite. Master Legend died twice and learned he is the angel Metatron. Superhero never died and may be a demon incarnate.

Master Legend often thinks in the spiritual.
Superhero often thinks in the physical.

I didn't realize this till afterwards but years ago when taking vitamins at vitamin shoppe, Superhero said he hates taking vitamins and eats to get all his nutrients. Master Legend once said he hates eating, and if he could take a pill and be full, he would.

Superhero has a colorful suit. Master Legend's suit is grey and black and silver, colors of a black and white movie. Superhero once had a helmet but doesn't use anymore. Master Legend didn't used to have a helmet but does now.

I used to think Superhero would have all the media attention and Master Legend would avoid it, but was opposite on both.

Superhero knows EVERYTHING about celebrities from most to least famous, A listers, B listers, C listers, D listers.

Master Legend does not know anything about even the most famous celebrities.

Superhero is good at impersonating people and characters, bad at making up his own jokes.

Master Legend is bad at impersonating people, good at coming up with original humor.

When ever Superhero lost weight, Master Legend gained weight.

Superhero likes history. Master Legend has psychic powers and predicts the future.

Master Legend loves having so many friends all over the world in all countries, but not many true friends nearby him, just so few. Superhero considers people friends more if they know each other in real life, does not take internet friendships seriously.

Say something bad about Superhero, even if it were true, the people would not believe it. Say something bad about Master Legend, everyone would believe it, even if not true.
