I admit that I have never really been a fan of superheroes. So when Becky Fyfe, creator of the chapter book challenge, which I participated in this year, announced the female superhero challenge, I wasn’t sure I was going to participate.
But I do believe strongly in her reasoning behind the challenge, especially when she talks about how she wants her daughters to believe that they can achieve anything that they put their minds to. I have a daughter too, and I feel the same way. Read more in Becky’s own post and in Yvonne Mes’ interview with Becky.
So I decided that I would at least try my hand at writing a story for the challenge. So far I have come up with a twosome who are just beginning to try out their powers in the form of bubbles. Not knowing so much about female superheroes, I hope that I have not written about someone who already exists.
What are your thoughts about female superheroes?
