Take a Break: Create A Superhero

We all need a hero in our life, so today’s “take a break” is about creating your very own superhero that can do amazing and wonderful things. The rules are simple-what would you like to see in a super hero?

Step 1: Decide on the extraordinary features of your superhero- flying, invisibility, fire breathing, turn into water or rubber; flexibility; blend into their surroundings; read minds and so on. What’s their weakness since they all have their kryptonite? This list of character traitsmight help you figure out your super hero. 

Step 2: Based on the characteristics of your superhero, create a back story-Where are they from and where do they live now? Do they have a love interest? What about a “day job?” Best friends? What kind of situations do they respond to? Who are their arch rivals?

Step 3: Give your superhero a name, if you haven’t done so already. Need help? Check out Ideas about How to Name a Superhero
