In a small town that seemed basic and unassuming was about to be home to the most powerful being in the universe. Ultimate cosmic power, only bounded by imagination was about to be granted to one sole individual. For no reason other than random chaos, all this power funneled into one person.

That one person was sleeping in on a Saturday. His name was Matthew, and he was dead beat 20 year old at home. He wasn’t entirely smart, or athletic, that went to his siblings.

“…weird…” He said to himself.

Little did he know what he just did…
