Until "Heroes," snaked its superhuman way into my heart, I was not a big fan of anything superhero-related. It wasn't that I disliked superhero stories, per se, it was that many of them bored me. But "Heroes" has changed all that. Now I'm actually doing things like spending valuable work time creating my own superheros with the HeroMachine 2.0.
Not only do you choose the physical attributes of the superhero (including hairstyle, wings and "aura"), but you also choose the clothing (including leggings) and their companion. The raccoon is an option, as is the mongoose, but as you can see, I went with the fetching squirrel-on-the-shoulder.
Even if you're not a big superhero fan, this activity takes me back to my youth, when doing something creative was freeing and soothing. What does your superhero look like?
