Just something for fun.
I got to talking with a few people on Twitter last night, and after a bunch of joke tweets (including a few from an actual indie author) we jokingly came up with the character "Super Cowboy".
Given that I've been working on a few supers of my own for a project, this got me to thinking -
If you could create your own super for possible publication, what would you do?
One of my ideas -
Professor Jermaine Craft had always been curious about the natural world. This curiosity manifest itself as a studiousness that always ensured good grades, which ensured not only the full ride college scholarship that got him is degree in physics but also a position at a college where the professors are encouraged to conduct their own research and experiments.
While experimenting with various materials and light sources one day, a perfect storm took place that transformed Professor Craft into a living prism. He can draw energy in from various light sources - especially the sun - and manifest them in different ways, including lasers, holograms, and blinding flashes of light. At the start of the series, he's also working on light refraction leading up to invisibility.
Yeah. Imagine being the student whose professor sometimes has to miss office hours to stop the bad guys.
