I was getting a series of vaccination shots today in preparation for travel abroad when I had a thought. Are there any superheroes or super villains who got their powers from vaccines?
There must be! I’m just not geeky enough to know it! Billions of people having dead and/or weakened viruses pumped into their systems, sometimes mixed or given closely enough to mix, mostly at a young age when their bodies are still developing. There’s zero chance of anything ever go wrong in a fictional universe to give somebody superpowers, right? 😉
In the movies, legends, lore and so on, heroes and villains often die “memorable” deaths. These could be dramatic, heroic, tragic, traumatic and/or other “memorable” adjectives that move audiences. However, those characters usually die “before their time”. They rarely die a boring death in old age, like of natural causes, at home, at a hospital, possibly due to some disease. Those types of deaths are tragic as well, of course, but lots of people die that way.
Pretty much all of us admire some such fictional character that die before their time. Many people admire them very much. But enough to want to die the same way? That’s what I want to know with the Meth of Death Survey below.
As I was sewing Prototype Beta of my body suit, it occurred to me that sewing must be a superhero ability, and a pretty common one at that! I mean, superheroes can’t exactly take their outfits to a seamstress or tailor to get them fixed or duplicated.
Until December 6th, there is a global campaign on Facebook where people replace their profile pictures with their favourite cartoon character/s, then encourage their friends to do the same. Now this campaign I like! Too bad it’s way too short but it’s gone viral globally after just a day’s notice!
I’ve got over 250 cartoon pictures made for Facebook profile pics at the bottom, arranged in alphabetical order with names, which include some modern and some old cartoons.
