The Adventures of Captain Corky and Kid Corky...
I've been up all morning trying to decide what kind of Superheroes Kid Corky and I should become when he gets a little older. Don't kid yourselves, this is important work folks! It's not easy scouring the Internet at close to light speed in between feedings and diaper changes.
One thing I know for sure is that we're going to have a power that propels us forward faster than walking or jogging does, and fuck relying on a car! I rely on a Mercury Sable to get me to work sometimes and I think the piece of shit needs a new alternator. Remind me to take care of that later... Much later. I'm busy right now.
I also have to consider what kind of uniform we should have. (I'm uncomfortable with the term "costume") I do like the color red on me and it looks good on Kid Corky too. Plus, by the time Kid Corky is ready to bust some heads with me I should be in much better shape to fill out my uniform. Just for today though, I'm going to put Splenda in my tea instead of sugar. Oh yeah... gold and black looks really good on me too. I'll just have to see how those colors look on Kid Corky later. A blue shirt with black pants my work better for him considering the fact that he has brown hair and brown eyes.
Obviously my motivation for becoming a Superhero is because I have an overwhelmingly strong sense of responsibility for the human race(Exactly the same reason why I blog). Other Superheroes with this motivation include Superman, Cyclops and Captain America (Regardless of what you're thinking, I've never, ever played a roll playing game before...). Kid Corky is young so his motivation will be more of a sense of adventure. Robin, and Kid Flash have this motivation, for example.
Base of Operations:
I highly doubt that our base of operations is going to be on the outskirts of Louisville Kentucky. I don't have anything against this town or state, but what kind of Superhero operates in a city that doesn't have a pro football team? We'd be the laughing stock of any superhero team we tried to join. Nobody laughs at Captain Corky or Kid Corky.
To be continued another day...
