By Terry Crews ⤩ I ALWAYS FELT LIKE A SUPERHERO AND EVERY SUPERHERO has an origin story The Hulk got hit with gamma rays, Batman became an orphan, and Spider Man received that infamous bite from a radioactive spider My origin story happened when I was two years old My mother and father were arguing, a common occurrence in our cramped upstairs apartment on Albert Street in Flint, Michigan An extension cord was plugged into the living room wall to power a nearby lamp As they fought, I put one end of the cord in my mouth while it was still attached to the wall socket It blew up, and I got shocked My mother said I never made a sound No screaming or crying, just a bloody, smoking lower lip with a hunk of skin hanging grotesquely from my chin The cord at my feet told her what had happened Panicked I was in cardiac arrestor worsebecause of my eerie silence, they both rushed me off to the hospital My mother was questioned by nurses, doctors, and even the police, as they harbored suspicions about her story, but eventuallyto her great reliefchild abuse was ruled out A sense of gratitude accompanied the realization that it could have been much worse I could have been electrocuted Instead, the jolt of electricity gave me my superpowers and the scar I still have on my lower lip As I grew up, I loved hearing about my superhero beginnings, and I asked my parents to tell me the story again and again As they told and retold it, I sometimes imagined Id been electrocuted and had died in that room I had visions of God sending angels to bring me back to life because God had determined I was special Not only that, but I also saw God speaking as the doctors did in the opening titles of my favorite show, The Six Million Dollar Man I can rebuild him Make him stronger My imagination as a child stayed on overdrive at all times and has remained just as vivid to this day The matriarch of our familymy wise, tough as nails grand aunt, Mama Zput the piece of my lip in a mason jar and kept it on her mantel Needless to say, my mother was horrified every time she saw it, as it had blackened into a tough jerky, and she was happy when Mama Z finally threw out her macabre souvenir But for me, this family legend was just proof that I was special The story made me feel exceptionally tough because Id survived something that should have killed me My quarter sized keloid scar on my bottom lip has always been a reminder of my strength and survival When I was three, the arguments with my father became so unbearable that my mother moved out of our Albert Street apartment and joined Mama Z and her husband, Brother Wright, on their farm just outside Flint My mother, my older brother, Marcelle, and I lived in their attic for a year I loved every minute of our time there, especially running outside among the chickens, pigs, and cornstalks Mama Z talked nonstop while Brother Wright sat in the kitchen nodding yes or shaking his head no She was an amazing cook and prepared feasts, which I devoured My hunger embarrassed my mother, and she always told me not to ask for anything But she also told me not to lie And Mama Z constantly asked me if I was hungry I looked at my mother, noticed her angry squint, but still I nodded yes Mama Z fixed me a huge plate of meat, beans, vegetables, and potatoes, as well as peach cobbler packed with ripe peaches shed picked behind the house I grinned at my mother until she reluctantly smiled back, knowing shed been foiled again My mother often left us alone with Mama Z, a tough cookie who worked outside every day and introduced me to how real the world could be In the morning, she stood in her kitchen, declaring there would be chicken for dinner as Brother Wright nodded in agreement Then she went out back by the barn and looked for a good sized chicken I sat on the back stoop, watching as Mama Z tiptoed around with the fowl, almost mimicking their steps Here, chickee, chickee, chickee, she called out in the sweetest little old lady voice imaginable Then she violently yanked the bird she wanted out of the crowd and held the neck still while spinning the body around in circles like a jump rope When she let her victim go, the other chickens scattered and clucked loudly as her chickenits neck broken, head dangling near its feetran around the yard flapping its wings for what was the longest minute of my short life As the runaway chicken came near me, I recoiled on the stoop, scared to death it might attack me Go on in the house, she said, waving me inside When she carried in the chicken, she promptly dunked it in boiling water, then plucked, gutted, butchered, and fried it I watched every step, determined that I was never going to eat that bird But as time went on, I grew hungrier and hungrier, and by the time she placed that same chicken down in front of me, with white rice and corn, I ate every bite Plus seconds It was the best chicken I ever tasted After a year with Mama Z, my mother and father reconciled, and we moved back in with my father But not all reunions are happy Before long, there were plenty of reasons I started feeling the need to be tough, even though I was only in kindergarten We relocated to a small, ramshackle house on Flint Park Avenue My father, Big Terry, began getting ready for the birth of my little sister, Michaell, and he and Trish, which is what we called my mother, moved Marcelle and me into the smaller of the two bedrooms At sixteen, my mother had given birth to my brother, and then had me at eighteen I now suspect her youth had something to do with why we never called her Mom And I believe we didnt refer to Big Terry as Dad in order to make it easier on Marcelle because he wasnt Marcelles birth father The fact that we had different fathers was never hidden from Marcelle and me, and I often wondered what Marcelles father looked like and what he was doing I thought about how it would feel to not know or have contact with my birth father, and I was always sensitive to what it must be like for Marcelle Once Big Terry and Trish had moved us into the smaller bedroom, they stacked our beds into bunk beds, which my brother and I loved because they now earned our highest compliment Its just like on TV we shouted when we ran into the room and saw them for the first time I prowled around, trying out amazing feats of strength and showing off for Marcelle Superhero style, I lifted dressers and the living room couch and flexed endlessly, imagining electricity still running through my body I would take the bottom bunk because I had a bad habit of falling out of bed in my sleep I was also a bed wetter Until I was fourteen Looking back on that time, I realize that my bed wetting had something to do with how unsafe I sometimes felt in that house One of the first nights my brother and I were sleeping in our new room, I woke up from a sound sleep to rumbling in the house that felt like thunder BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM I lay in the dark, trying to make sense of where I was and what was happening The whole place was shuddering Trish was shrieking and screaming It was pandemonium Id never heard anything like that before in our house, but nothing could have prepared me for those sounds anyhow It felt like war Our bedroom door was closed, but light leaked in from the other side My father had just installed a makeshift divider between our bedroom and the living room It was uneven and allowed light and sounds to filter through the cracks to where we lay I heard Big Terrys booming footsteps and a weird shuffling sound It felt like an earthquake was shaking everything I thought of my favorite Godzilla movies and wondered if the house would fall down like when he destroyed a city I was scared of what was happening, and I stayed in my bed with the covers pulled up over my head Marcelle did, too It became common for me to wake up to these sounds And soon, there was a night when the chaos spilled into our room as my mother burst through the door Im going to take the boys and go, she said Big Terry followed close behind her She had left before, and he knew she was serious Dont, Trish, he said, his voice pleading I blinked against the light, scared, trying not to do anything to make it worse Im telling you, Im gonna take them, she said Something in Big Terry seemed to snap You do that, and youll be sorry, he said, his voice growing angry.From NFL player turned film and TV star Terry Crews comes a wise and warmhearted memoir chronicling his lifelong quest to become a good man,
