Do Superheroes Bleed?

oh160523These are important questions. Mainly because I’m working on a new middle grade novel about Supers. I can’t tell you what it’s called yet, but I can tell you what I’m aiming for:

Deadpool for ten year olds.

Deadpool is the best superhero film I’ve ever seen. It identifies all the Super tropes and then obliterates them. It’s funny. And it has real stakes that don’t get diluted in the comedy. It’s the Terry Pratchett of super hero films. It stars a real person in an unreal world.

Good stuff. Mike-Bob says check it out.

    I don’t know, I always thought Freakazoid was “Deadpool for ten year olds” since it was shown on Saturday mornings… but so was The Tick and he WAS emotionally a ten year old. Maybe nine.
