Invent a new superhero and a new comic world

Can you invent the next big superhero?

Time to create the superhero you! The only limit is your creativity.


What you will need:

  1. Watch the video clip for some inspiration.

  2. Invent a new superhero. What special powers will they have? Will they fight for the good of man or will they will a super villain?

  3. You will need to consider their super suit. Cape or no cape, mask or no mask.

  4. You will then need to think about their back story. Why are they super? Were they born that way? Are they an experiment gone wrong? Did they get bitten by a radioactive bug?

  5. Can you then come up with comic book for them to introduce them to the world. Who is their arch rival? Who will they be fighting to either save or destroy the world.

  6. Create your superhero, you can do it on paper or using an online creator by clicking the link here.
