Jake is a pretty typical college students. He studies a lot, works two jobs and would like to find the right guy to share it all with.
Work and love collide when the man he’s had a crush on comes into the comic book store where he works looking for a birthday present. They run into each other again at a birthday party where Jake’s been hired to entertain kids wearing a superhero costume.
Will Jake’s love of comics and superheroes get in the way of winning Michael’s heart? Or is Michael looking for a super man to put some fire into his life?

“Labor Day weekend. Great for the bank account, sucks with the crowds. And could it have been more humid?” Jake muttered to no one as he entered the air-conditioned haven of the employee locker room. He’d spent most of the past 10 hours inside a Fire Force costume. He fought crime in the park and that meant he’d sweated the day away.
He tossed his goggles aside and his eyes adjusted to the florescent lights. Walking to the water cooler, he reached under his right arm to unzip the suit. The black outfit nearly cooked him on days like this. He loved wearing it though. Anything to turn into a superhero for the day. He freed his arm and pulled the top of the costume over his head and sideways so his chest was out of the hot Lyrca fabric.
He filled a cup with cold water and drank it down. Even though he had five-minute water breaks every twenty minutes, it wasn’t enough. He drew another cup of water and poured it over his chest. The short blonde hairs glistened with the sweat and cold water mix. The water felt good. It was time for a super cold shower to speed up the cool down.
He heard the water turn on in the showers, along with Tyler’s familiar humming. Jake drank more water as he headed to the shower entrance. Tyler, working as Ice Force, had it good because he’d been in the Lair all day. He processed the bad guys and gave tours in air-conditioned comfort.
“Tyler!” Jake shouted as he arrived in the doorway. “‘Lucky you staying inside today. Whoa! Sorry dude.” Jake caught Tyler working his hard-on.
“Shit, man. I didn’t hear you come in.” Tyler cupped his dick in his hands. Jake drank in the sight of the body he’d seen so many times before. Tyler was half-a-foot taller than Jake and was red haired from head-to-toe, including a short buzz cut that Jake loved. Tyler and Jake had been an item for a month a year ago when they started working at the E-Force attraction, but they discovered they were better suited to being good friends than boyfriends. That didn’t stop them from fooling around from time to time though.
“You might as well get in here and help me out now that you know I’m horned up.”
“I’ll take you up on that invitation.”
Jake’s cock grew stiff in his costume and it became uncomfortable fast. The costume’s underwear was designed to keep private bits hidden at all costs. If you got the least bit aroused it could be quite painful. Park visitors were never the wiser, but the E-Force team long ago recognized why some team members looked pained.
“Gimmie a second to get out of this.”
Back at his locker, Jake stepped out of the Fire Force get up. He tossed it on the bench, grabbed a towel and walked quickly back to the showers.
“I never get tired of seeing your hard cock,” Tyler said. “It’s been too long.”
“Yeah,” Jake said. He grabbed Tyler’s cock and stroked it gently. “What’s got you so worked up today?”
“This hunky guy was in the Lair. He didn’t seem to be with anyone. Maybe just a solo tourist or a random E-Force geek. He was fucking hot though, man. Muscular arms like you wouldn’t believe. The last hour has been rough.”
Jake squeezed Tyler’s cock in sympathy. “Let me take care of that for you.”
