Who is my favourite superhero and why?
Hmm. Are Superhero’s a relatively new phenomenon? TV wise anyway. Not being American I’ve never set eyes on a Marvel comic book, though of course I remember the old Superman films now I think about it. Oh and Batman – Danny DeVito as the Penguin scared the crap out of me as a kid.
Ok so we’ve established that yes I did have some childhood exposure to superheroes, but who is my favourite?
I would say as a child, it was She-Ra! Princess of Power! She was awesome. High fives to everyone who remembers her and her slightly odd relationship with her twin brother He-Man.
And what about when she said the magic words?! I bloody loved it when she “For the Honour of Grey-Skull!” and her sword starts spitting sparks.
And look at her secret palace! It was brilliant! And she had this gaggle of kick-ass girl pals all with various powers of their own.
And surely you remember the best bit!! Her horse only went and sprouted a unicorn and RAINBOW WINGS!!!
Frankly I defy you to find a better modern day hero. In fact, I’m off to download some She-Ra while the boys are out *memories*
P.S for a modern day superhero, just because we’re grown ups now, I’ll leave you with a parting gift…

I’ve somehow managed to get myself nominated for ‘best new blog’ at the MAD Awards 2016 *does small squee* I would LOVE another nomination, if you have a minute.
