THE FANDOM ZONE 011: "Shadows in the Glass" is Up!

"You get what you deserve.  It's an old saying, one that's survived the years, because it's true.  For the most part, but not for everyone.  Some get more than they deserve, because they believe they aren't like everyone else.  That the rules, the ones people like me and you, the people that work and struggle to live our lives, just live, don't apply to them.  That they can do anything and live happily ever after, while the rest of us suffer.  They do this from the shadows.  Shadows that we cast, with our indifference, with a pervasive lack of interest in anything that doesn't directly affect us, we, in the here and now.  Or maybe it's just the shadow of weariness.  Of how tired we are, struggling to claw our way back to a middle class that no longer exist, because of those who take more than they deserve.  And they keep taking, until all that's left for the rest of us is a memory of how it used to be before the corporations and the bottom line decided we didn't matter anymore.  But we do.  You and I, the people of this city, we still matter.  There's someone in Hell's Kitchen that doesn't share this belief.  He's been among us for quite some time.  You've never heard his name.  You've never seen his face.  He's stayed in the shadows, because men like him, men that want to control our city, our lives, fear the light and what it reveals.  This man must no longer be allowed to operate in the darkness.  If he has nothing to hide, let him step forward."
-- Ben Urich, Daredevil: "Shadows in the Glass"
