Brand New Superheroes!

You have no idea how much I hate cleaning my apartment. Well, sometimes. I hate it tonight, at least. But I gotta get it girl-worthy (and, soon, parent-worthy) so I actually had to almost finish unpacking from my move.

So I need to think of awesomeness. So I have decided to reveal to you some superheroes created by my students. We're doing a fiction-writing unit, and a lot of them are creating superhero stories. I'll hopefully write more about this later this week. Anyway, the cast so far:

Star Girl: Star Girl was on a crashing spaceship when a star hit them. It went inside her body and now she has the powers of a star. (Created by Laura M.)

Fire Girl: Fire Girl was in a house that burned down. She survived and now has fire powers. (Created by Laura M.)

Samarai Quack: He is a duck that knows kung fu (or "dose cufoo," as per the original writer). (Created by Rodney P.)

Tiger Woman: Wears a tiger costume. Can turn into a tiger and talk to tigers. She also can fly and has super strength. (Created by Jennifer P.)

Sue and Zue: Twins and best friends. Sue can control cats and Zue can control dogs. (Created by Jennifer P.)

Super Banana: He is super and he is a banana. His arch enemy is Monkey. Monkey is always trying to eat him and Super Banana Jr. They always escape, often by urinating on Monkey as he's trying to eat them. (Created by Jeffrey G.)

Super Gummi Bear: He is a giant gummi bear. He can bounce. He can feed parts of himself to other people and it grows back. He can eat himself. (Created by Jeffrey G.)

The Anything Man: Wears a black suit and has black eyes. He can turn into anyone or anything. (Created by Joshua A.)

I dunno about you, but most of these guys sound cooler than the drek the big two put out every week. Tune in later, when you can find out more about Liberty Man and his pals.

Samarai Quack: He is a duck that knows kung fu (or "dose cufoo," as per the original writer). (Created by Rodney P.)

Fred!, I think we found you a Padawan! Samarai Quack, meet Helicopter Karate Chop Ninja Duck Whatwashisname?

Tiger Woman: Wears a tiger costume. Can turn into a tiger and talk to tigers. She also can fly and has super strength. (Created by Jennifer P.)

If I were in the Justice League, I'd pick Tiger Woman over Aquaman and Hawkman; any day!

Come to think of it, how did those two ever get in?

Super Banana: He is super and he is a banana. His arch enemy is Monkey. Monkey is always trying to eat him and Super Banana Jr. They always escape, often by urinating on Monkey as he's trying to eat them. (Created by Jeffrey G.)

This guy has a future in the Gaming Business!

Super Gummi Bear: He is a giant gummi bear. He can bounce. He can feed parts of himself to other people and it grows back. He can eat himself. (Created by Jeffrey G.)

... or the porn industry.

The Anything Man: Wears a black suit and has black eyes. He can turn into anyone or anything. (Created by Joshua A.)

Wait a minute, is Grant Morrison in your class?

Last night I dreamed a stentorian voice boomed at me out of a big splash page, and demanded to know: "Who Is...THE ANYTHING MAN?!?" It felt right.

And then I dreamed that Super Banana comes on right after Spongebob.

I found out today that Star Girl can actually turn people into stars and put them in the sky forever.

That's pretty cool.

Grant Morrison isn't in my class, but my class DOES know who he is. Well, they know he is a Scottish writer who also leads the Invisibles. He's been playing a guest role in the oral "Captain Marvel Story" section of the class.

I create nerds out of children.
