Q.What superhero is your alter-ego?

Awesome question! I love superheroes...especially the movies. My brother read comics growing up, as did some of my friends, so most of my knowledge comes second hand...but they're always so cool and interesting!

Well, the first that came to mind is Oracle. Aka Barbara Gordon, who was Batgirl and then became Oracle after she was shot by Joker and paralysed. This year she's back to being Batgirl after a miracle cure, which I personally find disappointing. I suppose I'm just jealous! Oracle appeals to me as she's in a wheelchair and still kicks ass. She has a base (a clocktower!) from which she's the ears and the eyes for many superheroes, hacking and what not to provide information and strategy. She also leads an all female superhero group! Add to all of this her relationship with Dick Grayson, once Robin, now Nightwing...woohoo!

And for a little extra fun, there's also Rainbow Brite! I loved her growing up! What's not to love, right? Twink and Starlite are so cute! Plus, who wouldn't want to put colour in the world?!

Who's your superhero alter ego?


  1. Love Batman and Batgirl. I particularly like the Dark Knight films.
