Have you ever asked or been asked what superpower you would have if you could have one? Would you be invisible? Would you fly? There are so many options. Have you ever considered what superhero you would want to be? I’ve played these games as a kid and I see kids all around me play this game every day still. I’ve had some great conversations as an adult during parties and road trips discussing what our ideal superpower choices are. 

What would your superhero alter ego be? What job would a superhero have? Superheroes are inspiring not only because of their superpowers and their fight for good over evil, they have cool jobs. Perhaps it’s their powers that make them cool, or perhaps it's that many of them are just like us, with superhero alter ego cool jobs.
