You must trick a thug into capturing a super-powered item for you.

SUPERGLOVE (any gender, late teens on up)
Maaaaan, I don’t know where to begin with how rich we are going to be; I mean you, mostly; I just want a little piece. For me it’s more of a justice thing, been working for the guy for ten years and every day I still envy his dogs.
So. It’s daytime and the guy’s asleep, right? We go in there and the guy doesn’t wake up.
There’s one hard part and it’s not really hard, okay? You just gotta stay wise. Before you do anything, you gotta get the glove out of his reach. You pass the glove to me before you make any moves on him. You try to kill that man first? You take a blade and open up his throat? He’s gonna still be able to get the glove on and then he’s going to open up your everything.
And just in case you wanna try on the glove and become Mr. Super Villain, I’ll tell you right now: No dice. Glove only works for him. You just keep that thing out of his reach, You pass it to me. I’ll hold onto it and stay a few paces away.
Then he’s all yours, my friend. Man can’t do squat without that glove. And I really mean it, the man can barely squat. Stab him, bash him, smother him, whatever takes your fancy. Have fun. Then the place is ours. One bagful of what he’s got in his parlor, you’re set for life. Are you ready to be set for life? ‘Cause it is making me feel all kinds of good about myself thinking about the service I am doing for you.
