"I mean, this—kind of thing—isn't supposed to happen. Is it?"

"I've got enough psychological issues as it is! I don't need to add a messed-up nemesis-thing to my list. I can't find my pants."

"That's because I've got them."

"Oh." Billy hesitated. "I really need to go."

"Is it villain stuff? You can do it tomorrow, and I'll stop you and everything will go back to normal. But for now…" Hammer trailed off, grinning.

Taking over the world could wait.
