Micah was raised in a small town and educated at a small high school who transitioned to a
different small town and a rather small college (the illustrious silver and
blue, the mountainous pinnacle of enlightenment and academia, Berry College).
His life heretofore appears unremarkable for two reasons: his crime fighting
alter ego has been kept secret, and he has yet to publish the work of
literature that will define a genre, inspire a generation, and clear the path
towards a new way of thinking (probably it will be called Post-postmodernism).

improving organization and sentence structure.
