    As most know, the SciFi network, is having this show on tv tonight called, "Who Wants to be a Superhero?" Of, course I will have to miss it, damn comcast. But if you were a superhero, what will your superhero name be? And what special power(s), would you have for your characrter?

    Poetry Man.

    With the spoken word I would be able to take on arch enemies and dangerous scenarios. Imagine melting the heart of dastardly villain with one of Shakespeare's sonnets or putting out fires by reciting poems about water.

    I would not need any special physical attributes but I would need some hi-tech gizmos (to project my voice, etc.). However, I'm supposing I would be susceptible to a blind and deaf evil-doer.

    I might need some sort of sidekick like Esther Meekly, the Hot Librarian.

    And I would not want to be confused with P*ssy Man.

    Cool idea! I suggest you could foil that villain by tricking him into reading Braille.

    Absolutely brilliant! It's impossible to compete with that. Oh wait -- well I could be Mr Impossible. Yes, I can do the impossible!

    Of course you can.......I can hear Mrs. Impossible now, "Im, you are so impossible...just dropping your drawers anywhere you want!." "Im, you can't possibly think I'll be able to attend that Superheroes function after working all day helping you save the world and then having to take care of the kids!"

    So get the divorce and hook-up with.....that's right, the cartoon heroine, Kim Possible. Translation: the Impossible becomes Possible.

    I don't need to divorce to have a wife who calls me "Impossible" (but her name is "Nobody" -- you've heard the phrase "Nobody's perfect", haven't you?) :D

    You don't need to be a Superhero either..............ever hear the phrase, 'well, that's just perfect?' So I'm thinking my name is 'Well' and then I figure it's 'Perfect' because she keeps saying it after every thing I do (maybe with a slight tinge of disgust, contempt and bottomless disappointment).

    Hmmm, Mr. Perfect....

    I think I'd be Comedy Man. I would be able to control people's laughter reflex by telling insanely funny jokes in any language that nobody's heard before. The funniest jokes would be told to arch villains so they would be incapacitated by convulsive laughter. I'd use visual humor for the deaf, and play practical jokes on a villain who was deaf and blind.

    Let me suggest Ed McMahon as your sidekick.

    That's not enough information. How does SuperNEM fight evil villains? I know -- he argues politics with them until they spontaneously combust. Right?

    Exactly, that's what I had in mind. I recall seeing that movie in the theater when it first came out, what a crazy film.

    I would be the Barking Spider. I could climb walls, buildings and such a la a spider. I could not fly per se, but I would be able to launch myself airborn via my own *ahem* personal propulsion system for defensive and offensive maneuvers. However, unlike Spiderman, I would take the villains down by casting a noxious, gaseous cloud over them, thus knocking them unconcious.

    My "mortal" persona would be Stan Kiass, owner of the Darn Tootin' Brick Oven Baked Beans company. My weakness would be that my powers were only effective a day or so after tailgating.

    Needed: British hero. Polite. Calm by Giles Coren

    ... But what would a British superhero be like? The American ones are faster, stronger, X-ray visionier than other men, and so proud of it that they give themselves names such as “Flash†and “Green Arrowâ€, and wear clingy outfits to show off their muscles. I just don’t think an Englishman blessed with special powers would be like that.

    When a British Clark Kent saw a plane falling from the sky, he’d rush into a phone box to change into something even more starchy and formal. His special name would be “Kenty†or possibly “The Kentstableâ€.

    And instead of a flying sports car in the shape of a bat, he’d have a small van with “A1 Crime Fighting Solutions†written on it. Possibly with an 01 phone number that he hadn’t got around to updating.

    A British Wonder Woman wouldn’t slink around in a red, white and blue bathing suit, flying an invisible plane and herding bad guys with her golden lasso, she would wear stout shoes she got from an advert in The Guardian, carry a book of Su Doku puzzles and tell everyone to calm down while she made a nice pot of tea.
    While strength and speed are treasured in America, we British cherish different qualities, and would want to see them exacerbated in our costumed crimefighters. How we would thrill to the exploits of Wellbroughtupman. “Politer than a speeding train!â€; “More unflappable than a mighty atom bomb!â€; “See him offer his seat to an old lady on the bus!â€; “Cheer as he chastises the feckless Hoody for spitting in the street!†In the monthly issues of Mustn’t Grumble Comics we would watch as Phlegmatic Man’s whole life fell apart while he kept his chin up and refused to complain. And in The Adventures of Littleold Woman we’d see her being nice to cats...
