“He wasn’t blind miraculously, but the impact severed so much in and around the eye socket that he would never be able to open the reconstructed lid more than halfway, which was fine because he still had his eye and he didn’t like patches. He kept the helmet and some of the shards they pulled out of his face, he named the stones actually, all nine of them, eerily similar on a smaller scale to the planets in our solar system. He joked with his friends that he got hit with the “big bang.” He also discouraged all attempts to label him a hero stating strongly our heroes are draped in old glory and he wasn’t one of them. His sister dubbed him Slanty when she visited his hospital room two months later. They laughed and hugged and he loved the identifier. Now, even his mother calls him Slanty and why not.”
