Using this Superhero Name Generator website to generate a superhero name as well as your powers, write a short story about the day in the life of YOU but as a superhero. What do you do when you wake up? How do you know when duty calls? Who will you save today? You don’t even have to save anyone. Maybe you’re a super chill superhero who saves themselves by being content (self care is ALSO important!). Or maybe you have a disguise and work a 9 to 5 but by night you battle the villains who cause destruction in your hometown. Who knows! The possibilities are endless, so get creative!
