The New Superhero
For those of you that don’t know, Marie and I actually met through the game City of Heroes many years ago. While we don’t play it anymore, I do still miss it at times. I miss the creative freedom we had in that game. The ability to come up with any sort of hero or villain that we wanted, then directing them through the stories we would come up with for our characters. (People in the game always called them Toons) It was a very fun time, and I still try my best to stay in contact with the group of friends we had at the time, heck, some of them have even made it into these comics in some way or another.
So today’s comic represents that part in all of us when we were young, those early dreams of one day being like Spider-Man, or creating our own heroes to look up to. It’s also due in part to a work friend of mine who mentioned something last night about wearing a fluoro orange shirt and being a god. I can’t quite remember the exact conversation, but never the less, this is the result of what I pictured.
I’m a very creative person, so much so that I often daydream about stories that I could write, inventions, music, characters and other weird random things. The best part about doing this website/comic/shows is it lets me get out plenty of creativity. I’d love one day to be in the position where I can do nothing but dream up worlds for people to enjoy.
I’d be curious to see what you all dreamed of being when you were young. Did you dream of being a policeman, the Incredible Hulk or maybe even something more extreme?
