New Look

Superheroes of Cincinatti on CNN

I just had to LOL seeing this on CNN this afternoon...

Superheroes' take to streets

Embedded video from CNN Video

I love the idea, but guys, please spend more time working on the costumes!
And no, Under Armour tops and neon-panelled diveskins are not going to strike fear and awe into the hearts of criminals. Here, I'll give you my spandex tailor's contact info, he could do wonders for you guys!

Also work on a better superhero voice-- it's not just the same speaking voice when you're ordering a coffee at Starbucks! Batman makes his all gravelly and rough, and a lot of superheroes develop their their deepest bassoprofundo or even make a golden-throat Mighty Mouse-style voice. Bonus points if you have a really cool-looking hero-mobile to drive around in, even if it isn't powered by a jet engine.

Too bad we don't have a "Sky High" school of superheroes in RL so that aspiring young heroes can learn these things.

And lay off the mace, willya? Superheroes don't use pepper spray!
