I'm thinking something like "SuperSexyMan." I hope that's not taken.
Mr F and Mr Bunches have outgrown their superhero shirts that Sweetie got them a while back -- little Batman and Superman shirts that had capes attached. And I think that's a shame. I think no kid should have to go through life without being a superhero from time to time, and no kid should have to try to be a superhero with a towel tied around his neck. What kind of superhero is that? That makes a kid have to use all his imagination to pretend that his overalls and t-shirt and towel are a superhero uniform, and you know how much imagination that leaves to fight hordes of invading aliens who are about to destroy Citytown?
None. None imagination, that's how much is left. So little imagination that the best name they could come up with for the city they're super-protecting is ... Citytown? Come on!
The cure for that is to make sure the boys have good superhero costumes that fit them, and the way to get good superhero costumes for them is to buy them from some place that sells Halloween Costumes year round.
Which, of course, you can find on the Internet -- you can find EVERYTHING on the Internet these days, including probably a website that would help you figure out a better name for a fictional city than "Citytown," -- at any number of sites that sell not just kids' superhero costumes but also Sexy Halloween Costumes and other Adult Costumes.
Which could come in handy in OTHER situations. Like, say, if I wanted to pretend to be a superhero, too. A SEXY superhero.
