Re: And this is where the "What Ifs" come in o_O
Heh. Check out the latest 'Dial H', by China Meiville. One character is from another dimension, where his parents were killed in a dark alley. When he got old enough he contemplated going to war against crime, and he stared out the open window of his mansion...
...but no bats flew in. So he became 'Open Window Man'. :)
