We Can Be Super Heroes

By Donovan Baldwin

Let's put super-heroes, blockbuster movies, and thrilling, though impossible, plots, scripts, dialogue, and stunts aside.

In my mind, every woman can be Wonder Woman, and every man a wonder-man.

They don't need a fancy, form-fitting, every-last-secret revealing costume (Which most of us would rather not be seen in public wearing, right?), or a magic lasso, ability to leap tall buildings with a single bound, and all that other stuff, to help make the world a better place.

Not that I object to heroes, super or otherwise.

After all, I love Greek, and other, mythologies. On my wall is a picture of the Farnese Hercules. I admire the model offered bu someone, real or imagined, who is willing and able to change the world for the better. It's just that most of us have to work with a limited set of powers.

Think about it.

You don't really need a body like Wonder Woman's, or Superman's, to smile at someone. You don't need impossible strength or physical skills to help someone with a difficult task. You don't even have to look like an actor who COULD play a superhero to be one. With or without that skimpy, physique-revealing costume, make somebody's day better, and maybe they'll think you're pretty hot stuff.

True, probably nobody will put you in a comic book or make a movie about you, but you might end up feeling like a super star anyway. Just don't expect to be asked for autographs...except on checks and credit card bills.
