We all wanted to be superheroes when we grew up. The closest I got? Well, I am a mild-mannered reporter working for a great metropolitan newspaper … I’ve always been more Kent than Kal-El.
Anyway, now there’s a website called MakeMeSuper and, well, it could more precisely be called MakeMeRidiculous. And that’s just what I did, with this photo right here as evidence. At the site, with a few very easy steps (and for free) you can slap your own face atop the shoulders of a male or female superhero. You get your own two-minute music video with a customized theme song and a few giggles. You can also e-mail the finished product to your friends, family and arch-enemies. I sent a version of my heroic video to my wife and now, well, I’m just sitting back waiting for her to call and tell me how marvelous I look. She should be calling any minute. Hmmm. It’s been a while now. She must be watching it over and over and over.
Anyway If you’re truly obsessed with your glorious image in tights, you can even purchase a personalized coffee mug, mouse pad or deck of cards. Is this a great country or what?
