Monday Madness: My Superhero alterego Purple Rain

Purple Rain I’m not going to lie to you. I’ve often fantasized about becoming a superhero with full blown super powers and a hidden identity. So when I saw this on The Beacon, I just had to try it out for myself.

First of all, the song on the site is simply amazing – rockin’ to an 80’s hit while you’re choosing your alterego on a hungover Sunday night… what more could a girl ask for?!

The Hero Factory doesn’t come up with great superhero names but its still pretty neat. I created Purple Rain to reflect who I would want to be if I were ever given superhero powers. The Ninja star is only the beginning of her abilities, the cape for protection and the outfit.. well the outfit was part of a limited selection on the site but its good enough.

My ideal superpowers? WARNING: Heroes spoilers below.

My first choice would be to be an Empath. Yes, like Peter Petrelli was in Season 1. But I think I would have a better handle on all my powers1 and wouldn’t have lost all my abilities to my father in a lame ass hug. I would be able to empathize with people and know what they’re going through as well and I already feel I’m quite capable of this2, so this is why being an empath would be my first superpower choice.

My second choice would be to have a great mind like Batman or Iron Man. To be able to create something out of nothing and have all sorts of neat gadgets and the smarts to out-smart all my enemies. Of course, this comes with unlimited funding as well as seen in both cases of Batman and Iron Man 😉 and that’s an added bonus!

Third and last choice… hm.. would be a little hard but I’d want high-level telepathy like Professor Xavier’s. This is my third choice because I don’t really want to know what everyone is thinking all the time. But I liked how Matt & Peter were able to convince the guards to protect them instead of attacking them last week when they snuck into to enemy quarters3.

Anyway, that’s my little fantasy into superhero-dom. Give it a shot and let me know in the comments what you’ve come up with!

Who’s your superhero?

  1. @Ken: lol there isn’t really any power that hasn’t ‘been done’ before so I’d say being able to ‘leap tall buildings in a single bound’ is as good as any super power!

    @Miss Tique: Damn, I really wanted to see your super hero! Cross-bow dudette huh? Sounds hot!! And yes, I do believe that is a real word in the urban dictionary! hehe

    @Ayprel: Hehe I can’t wait to see yours!! Flickr it! Flickr it!!

    @Canucklehead: lol I saw that 😉 And haven’t we proven this likeness before? hehe

    @Penny: Peter *was* silly, but still very hot! Which one is your favourite, do you think?

  2. Haha yeah Peter was silly! Heroes comes up with some really cool super powers that I would never have thought of.

  3. Very cool! I tried working on mine, but it didn’t come out the way I wanted. I think it’s because I need to use Safari. I’ll flickr it once it’s done.

    LOL, see? We both love Super Heroes!

  4. I tried the superhero alter-ego, too. But forgot the result. I was an all-black “dudette” (does this word even exist?) with a cross-bow.

    dudette= feminine of dude 😀
