My Superhero

Scifi channel has released a superhero builder on their website in association with their new show "Who wants to be a Superhero."

Unfortunatly you can't just dl a pic, you have to link to their page. I wrote up some powers and an origin for him as well.

Real name: Justin Charles (JC) Lee

Code name: B-52

Powers: Superior intellect, increased endurance, and greater than average strength/speed.

Origin: Worked for the government to create a steroid injection that increases soldier performance during battle. JC tested the injections on himself, but results were not seen and the program was cancelled. About four months later, JC started to notice his musculature changing and his endurance growing. JC turned to vigilante justice as a way of putting things right in his community. Still working with the government, JC gains access to secret programs and uses the technology in his quest to clean up the streets. His jet pack is implemented with both lethal and non lethal weaponry. His outfit is made of a lightweight woven Kevlar that will stop most munitions.

Weakness: JC has a higher metabolism and requires more rest and food. He also does not know if the effects of the injections are permanent, or if there are any side affects. Although his suit is bulletproof it does not stop bruising and his face is exposed.

I want links to your heroes!

The Future

The Future

 

Look to the future we are told

Do not be afraid to be bold

If only I had the machine of wells

Oh, the stories I would tell

You see, the future to me is clear

Tableau rosa, even though it is quite near

Where are the flying cars, and moon bases?

Where are intruders from afar with green faces?

The space program used to be our greatest hope

Now it seems it is being run by a big dope

Where is your place in this, where is mine?

Is everything really going to turn out fine?

Will I ever travel and see the stars,

Swim through Saturn's rings or explore mars?

Will I sit and rot here on Earth?

Does my English degree have any worth?

I ask myself these things before I dream

A dream that takes me to where everything

Isn't always as it seems.

Elmyra

If you have ever seen Tiny Toon Adventures (we're tiny we're tooney, we're all a little looney, and during this cartooney, we're invading your TV.), then you know who Elmyra is.  For those of you that have not seen the show, Elmyra is little girl whose repeated line is "oh a (insert furry animal here), I want to hug you, and squeeze you, and love you. . ."  She then proceeds to do just that.  She also dresses them up and never puts them down.  Yes captivity.  Now that you know the character meet my oldest daughter Ashli.  She is Elmyra incarnate.

QotD: No shouting on the bus!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 11, 2006 by Budd Black

What was your most memorable or favorite school field trip?

We went to see the Gengis Khan exhibit when I was a senior.  It was Gengis Khan, perpetuator of senseless violence.  I am a huge fan.  On the bus ride back, I fell asleep.  I freaked everyone out because my eyes were not closed, but you could only see the whites of my eyes.  I seem to have passed this trait on to my own children.  I think it is cute.  "Look honey, Ashli is possessed again.  Awwww!"
