I’ve developed a brilliant concept for a superhero. My rise to fame is now inevitable. Work may halt on this blog while I build my merchandizing empire.
The hero is a throwback to the classic, bygone days of Golden Age comics. He’s big and brave and a true American. He wears red, white, and blue and always has time to fly over to the school, sign autographs and admonish the kids to “be good”.
He’s bulletproof, fireproof, he can fly, he’s super-strong, and he always carries a bottle of lighter fluid and his “Zippo of Justice”. He doesn’t fight super-villans. (Let’s face it: The other guys all have that game covered.) Instead, he hunts down spammers and sets them on fire. Once he’s roasted them alive, he kills their family and then impales their dog on a spike in front of the house as a warning to other spammers.
I’m calling him “The Broiler”. I’ve sent my idea off to Marvel along with some of my own concept art (note to self: Buy more red crayons) and now I’m just waiting to hear back from them.
I’m going to be rich!
