I want to have Edna’s confidence
The thing is, she needs to be confident. She needs to be THE BEST so that the tragedies of her past don’t happen again. Why “No capes!”? She made those outfits. Her outfits are the reason that competent heroes died. She needs to be better than she was, better than she is, so she sets those standards for herself.
excuse u who gave you permission to give me emotions over edna mode

Headcanon: in a hidden room she has replicas of every super hero who died’s costume and she studies them endlessly to figure out what she could’ve done on her part to save them. If this costume had been fire proof, maybe he would’ve lived, if this had been bullet proof maybe she would still be here.
