When I was a kid I use to be enamored with the idea of being a superhero. My childhood playmates and I use to spend countless hours dressing up as our favorite superheroes and then devise elaborate ways to role play how we could exercise our imaginary superpowers. We would be so immersed in our personas that we would often forget that we actually could not run faster than a speeding bullet, shoot spider webs from our bodies, or have the incredible strength to lift a school bus. But what if we could? What if we had the potential to attain our most desired superpowers? What if a kid's most desired superpower is to unleash their creative potential?
Our infatuation with the genre of superheroes stems from our childhood belief that we have the ability to use our hidden potential to make a difference in the world. However, at some point we traded in our beliefs of superpowers for more "realistic" pursuits of accepted skill sets and career paths. At some point we boxed away our comic book heroes and looked towards historical figures in textbooks and spokesmen in the news. The role models and abilities that we had aspired to attain were traded in for skills and career paths that were deemed to be realistic.
I want to help bring to life a superhero whose superpower is Creativity. Creativity with a capital C that is on par with the superpowers of Invisibility, Invincibility, Flight, and any other ability that we had once aspired to attain as children. Through adventures the Creative Superhero would use Creativity to overcome obstacles, save lives, and thwart naysayers who wish to regulate the world by instilling conformity and do away with the suspension of disbelief. The Creative Superhero will be a persona that will inspire and teach kids to cultivate and successfully attain their creative potentials to make a difference in the world that they are passionate about.
