To become a superhero you don’t need to be bitten by an insect, nor hit by a meteorite, risky experiments in a laboratory or exposure to Gamma rays. Or, at least, not always. It’s true that having the ability to turn invisible, move things with your mind, or teleport… Well, that helps.

  • Avoid suspicions about your identity.
  • Design and make your costume and logo.
  • Learn about the tricks and qualities of superheroes of the past.
  • Learn how to identify supervillains and… Take action!
