I’ve been on another learning kick lately. Aside from completing my inbound certification this month, I’ve also been auditing a class through the Smithsonian called “The Rise of Superheroes and Their Impact on Society”. The title alone sounds cool, right? Wait until I tell you who’s teaching it...
Stan Lee and Dr. Michael Uslan (producer of most modern Batman movies)!
Mind = Blown.
Initially, I signed up to appease my geekier side, but it’s become so much more than that. The class has not only armed me with information I will no doubt use as forced trivia in conversation, it’s also inspired me to outline a superhero story I’ve had in the back of my mind for years.
(Of course, right? It had to happen right after I started my writing break to job hunt full-time! LOL)
Anyway, our final projects involve creating an original superhero and doing a scene where he or she faces off against an original super villain. I created a sketch of my MC (below), but I can’t seem to come up with the right superhero name for her. Does anyone have a suggestion? :)
