Joe ain't no hero. He just wants to die.
The kids they call him "Roadkill" on account of how them Horrors sucked him up into the sky to have their way with him, then dropped him in the middle of a street full of traffic. His back's hurt him something fierce ever since, but otherwise, he's right as rain.
That's not to say life's been a bed of roses—unless all we're talking about is the thorns.
