5 Ways To Be A Superhero

Updated on July 26, 2011


Superman has super strength. Flash has super speed. Wolverine has his sharp claws. If you want to be a superhero, you certainly need to have some sort of power. However, it does not have to be as awesome like the examples I have mentioned. It can be super patience, super discipline or even super dedication. Like the old saying goes, there is nothing we can't achieve as long as we work hard for it. One superhero who probably is best not only in martial arts but dedication and discipline as well is the famous Bruce Lee.

Do you think he got his lightning punch and kick after a day of training? What most of us do not know, he did it for years. It was not an easy road which only proves how dedicated Bruce Lee is in practicing the art. Despite becoming an actor, he still practice the art and encourage others to be with him. He is definitely one superhero most of us love!



This is one superhero requirement you should never miss. Can you imagine superman wearing a pink suite and an orange cape? I know that's to feminine for such a strong man. LOL. This is the main reason why deciding a costume which fits well to your superhero character is a must. Nonetheless, there is no need for you to wear your briefs outside your pants like our famous superheros do. Who would dare to try? A superhero suite is good enough if you wear it properly. A good example are uniforms worn by policemen. Their uniform is one of the factor which makes them strong and worthy of our respect. There is no way someone would trust a policeman wearing shorts. This is also true to other jobs out there. Be proud to wear your uniforms and love your profession. Remember that all of you are superheros in one way or another.



The bat cave is probably the most awesome superhero base. The technology used in it is very impressive, not to mention how it fits to perfectly batman. Bats normally live in caves right? hehe. You don't need a cave just to set up the best super hero base. All you need to have are some weapons to clear all the dust and dirt in your room which includes a broom and a vacuum. Do not just leave your room in such a mess every morning. Consider it your base and make it look good. Remember that your room reflects who you are and a messy one won't leave a good impression to someone who might take a peek of it. Can you imagine if your crush visits you and finds out how your room resembles a dumping site? A superhero like you deserves a clean and well-organized base.



If you ask me what superhero name would I choose, it would be "TerrorPink" or ""PinkEye". I know those names sound too feminine and not suited for a strong superhero. Superman is a very straightforward name which is also true with spiderman and batman. If you want to be a really good superhero, you should love the name your parents gave you. For me, it's an expression of love. They though about the name and gave it to you. It's a gift from them which you should treasure in a lifetime. My superhero name is Alma and I really love it. This name is common but this is what my family, friends and other loved ones call me if they need help.

Your name might not be as cool as "The Flash" or "Green Lantern" but its what your loving parents gave you. Take care of it and don't allow anyone to make fun of it.



Life is not worth living without someone to share it with. Your true love will eventually come and both of you will spend a super life together. I am still searching for my superman but I know he will come and save my heart from loneliness. However, I have my friends and their presence is enough for me to say that I'm really happy and contented. I consider them as my by Hawkgirl, Flash, and Green Lantern and together we form the Justice League. They are always by my side not only at times of happiness but also when it seems the whole world is against me. We faced a lot of villains along the way. Our super strict teacher, a lot of complicated school projects, and school bullies are just a few of them. Nonetheless, of friendship still prevailed and helped us together deal with all of them one after another. You are a superhero if you choose to be one! Believe in yourself and start a good deed now! It is never too late. In fact, even a villain can be a superhero like MegaMind. Come with us and let's save our world!

      What a lovely idea that we can all be superheros - I've never thought of myself as one but I will now! I wonder if any of my family or friends think of me like that! I'd like to think my grandchildren might see me as at least super. One of the best things anyone has said about me was my granddaughter (about 6 at the time) saying to her mum 'She's wicked, grandma, isn't she?' I like you writing style.

      Hi Alma;

      I really like the message - we can all be superheroes (or at least super role models) if only we demonstrate self-discipline, vacuum and tidy our rooms and homes, respect our work and love our friends, and generally live good lives with good values.

      (Just so long as we don't have to jump off buildings and fly through the air as well!)

      True! I'm a Bruce Lee fan and I find him cute as well. LOL.

      Kick Ass is a very funny movie and it is one of my favorite. I really love how a very weak guy can be so great which inspires me a lot.

      Thank you for liking my hub!

      I really appreciate comments because they encourage me to do better.

      Wow! What a great hub!! I especially love the Bruce Lee part - he was and still is one of my 'heros'! I also loved the bit about 'Kick Ass'. This is not usually my type of movie but I remember just watching it one night when I was bored and I can't remember laughing at a movie so much!

      I loved this hub, voted up + funny + awesome!
