Jeremy Milner can tell when someone is lying. It’s like a buzzing in his brain and it hurts!
Driven mad by always knowing when everyone is lying, Jeremy fashioned himself a new identity of Jiminy (based on the cricket from Pinocchio) and declared himself a superhero, intent on forcing the worst liars of the world to change their ways. He would be the conscience of the world.
Jiminy isn’t really a hero. In fact, some would even classify him as a villain as he’s not exactly picky about who he targets and even small lies like those told by a hero to protect their secret identity seem to trigger him.
