The One Time I Was a SuperHero


Remember that one time in your childhood when you were inspired to be a superhero? Well for me it all started with the graphic novel series of Captain Underpants. Captain Underpants fixed all problems and had some of the coolest battles with some of the weirdest villains.


It all stated when I was about six years-old and my sister was reading Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking toilet. I remember my sister would read this book over and over again and sometimes she would read it to me. After indulging in the adventures of this round, babylike, superhero, I began to immerse myself in the Universe of Captain Underpants and run around my home wearing only my underwear and a red towel tied around my neck. From this weird and embarrassing beginning I continued to grow my relationship with Captain Underpants and read more and more of the books.
