CREATE YOUR OWN SUPERHERO COMPETITION!
With the release of Wonder Woman last year, and the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, there's definitely an increased appetite for female superheroes—and rightly so! But what constitutes a superhero? We want YOU to create your own fantastic and inspiring female superhero to share with STRONG readers. Entrants should design and draw their own female superhero and write a paragraph explaining her heroic strengths!
Submissions should be emailed to email@example.com by midnight on August 3rd. Two winners will be selected to have their superheroes featured in the next issue of STRONG!
WHAT CONSTITUTES A SUPERHERO?
We spoke to Jhonni Dixon, one of our STRONG Girl Presenters and a Marvel fan, and Rashida Miller, mom to a STRONG girl and superhero enthusiast about what it takes to be a super hero:
"What makes a hero an hero? Well, they fight the "bad guys", but they also have to be brave. And brave enough to confront their own fears. A superhero shows courage."
"For me it comes down to how one acts. It's about doing the right thing, risking your life for the lives of others. Some super heroes have powers, but some of my favorites, Batman and Iron Man, are just talented, smart people. Black Widow has no powers. She's in top physical condition though and is smart. She now uses those powers for good (she was originally a Russian spy!). They should be good role models, and of course, they need a costume. Without a costume they're just a vigilante!"
We can't wait to see your superheroes!
Closing date Aug 3rd
