Need help with my novel

    I'm writing a sci fi story and my main character is a human in the year 4141 who was travelling to another planet but his spaceship crashed and he was sucked into a black hole.
    He is a supervillian and he has a superhero nemisis who he wants to destroy but I've realised that when in a black hole nothing can escape so I'm starting to think that my story opens up badly but I've no idea what else to change it to.

    My question is do you guys think that I can use this opening when he is the black hole and would it be a little confusing if he escaped from the black hole or do I need to reconsider my story altogether.

    Many Thanks.

    Sounds cool Louka! Personally, I really like the idea of him escaping from it- he is a super hero after all! Maybe make him escape in a really cool way, like using powers or something or perhaps introduce another character or theme which helps him escape, he can't die if he has to defeat his nemesis
    This may be useless to you or just me rambling idk, hope it helps in some way!
    Good luck with your novel! 🤗
