We are reading WATCHMEN by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons and after reading about how the characters constructed their masked persona, I asked the class to create their own Super Self. We allowed them to give themselves a super power (unlike MOST of the characters in Watchmen), and we created our super selves. Here is mine. Heck, I’ve always wanted to be a redhead.
I used an on-line Super Hero Builder (there are a few), and brought the image into ComicLife.

I like the origin story and powers even more than the enchanting graphic!
Thanks, Paul – When I unveiled Libros in class, one of my students asked, “What are you? The fastest reader in the world?” My students are too young to get the “Back to the Future” references (2.8 gigawatts and the Flux Capacitor (as my daughter says it should be spelled) but I thought they were entertaining – as well as my weaknesses. That deadly MYSELF will get me every time!
Thanks for stopping by! And I still owe you a blog post!
