Are you introverted, shy or, at times, socially awkward?
Do you find it challenging to communicate your value with confidence?

Why the Superhero/Super Power Metaphor?
Superheros are excellent metaphors for what each and every one of us has inside. Most of the origin tales of superheroes show that they started off ordinary but came into their own extraordinary-ness through some trigger event. Whether it was being bitten by a radioactive spider, being dowsed with radiation or just learning of their true origins, each superhero started out ordinary in their own minds.
We are all like that ... ordinary in our own minds until some trigger event allows us to see how extraordinary we really are.
Although I have never read comic books or graphic novels (too many pictures ... long story), I have had a long-time fascination with superheroes. In fact, when I was in elementary school I invented my very own superhero during a summer arts and crafts class. (Pictured here in the top two pictures on the right.)
One of the projects was to create a paper mache puppet ... and thus Butterfly Girl was born! When in her secret identity, Butterfly Girl wore a simple yellow scarf around her head. But when someone was in danger, the scarf came off and her beautiful butterfly wings would sprout from her back and off she went to save the day!
Later, I became an avid fan of superhero TV shows and cartoons. Some of my favorite shows included Batman starring Adam West and Burt Ward (would you believe I had a crush on Frank Gorshin as The Riddler?), The Incredible Hulk starring Bill Bixby and The Amazing Spider-Man starring Nicholas Hammond. And, of course, who can forget The New Adventures of Wonder Woman starring Lynda Carter and Lyle Waggoner! (Loved that sparkling tooth!)
And these days, my husband and I love going to see the latest Marvel film featuring Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, The Hulk and the rest.
