Police officers nodded, rifles in hand, as he came to the microphones. Scott looked on as the crowd grew silent, waiting for his words that decided how their city was to be controlled. Indeed, this horrific person was the mayor of Gotham, the city made legendary by heroes such as Batman and villains like Joker. His face would have contained a smile as he began, his words cold and surprisingly homely at first.
"Friends and families of Gotham; my neighbors. I welcomed this city into my life with utter joy and I hope you all feel the same way about me," a pause and the people chanted the slogan plastered on signs as far as the eye could see. He continued, "The police have been given funds to leave this city safer than ever. Arkham has never been so full of the lunatics Batman had left to their business and the thugs he used to ignore because of those psychos are all but gone. Under me, Gotham is to be a haven unlike no other! Under me, this city will finally be put alongside New York on the list of 'Most Recognized Cities'!"
The people yelled again, but they were forced into silence by Scott's voice.
"But before that can happen, there is something I want from you, the people. You see, this city is still full of error and imperfection and we as humans want those blemishes gone. I am speaking of the invisible menace that hides in plain sight: superhumans. They have committed property damages, criminal acts of murder and genocide, they have caused families to be without mothers, fathers, or children for generations. They have caused these scars on my face and the scars underneath countless other faces. To become a utopia, Gotham must be rid of these freaks. To become a utopia for you, the people, of Gotham and beyond, the things of comic books, heroes, all freaks with superpowers...must DIE!!"
At first, the crowd was silent, but they all began to clap and chant the slogan over and over. Scott put his Anti-Superhuman Act into reality, instituting that all people with superpowers within Gotham must assimilate into normalcy or be killed. Those who tried to escape would be hunted down and executed. All of this was written and carried out just fourteen days before Christmas Eve.
