Becoming a Superhero takes readers (8 - 12) back to World War II and its aftermath, as they look inside the life of Billy Smith, a 10-year-old living in a Pennsylvania coal mining town. Billy decides he wants to become an American superhero, yet the choices he makes often have disastrous consequences. The story is a tale of morals and values. A first-person narrative of a young boy, caught between the innocence of childhood and the responsibilities of growing up. Each page is like having Grandpa tell stories of what life was like growing up in the olden days. The story is semi-autobiographical, based on published poems of my childhood.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, University of Cologne (Englisches Seminar I), language: English, abstract: Roughly 80 years after Superman’s invention in 1938 as "the ultimate power fantasy” for American men whose virility struggled under the socio-economic situation his, role still indicates the idealization of the strong, potent male. The recent reinstallment of Superman's cinematic career in "Men of Steel" (2013) supports what numerous scholars agree upon: To this day, superhero stories most often depict characters who typify conventional gender norms, with the traditionally male heroes denoting a masculinist structure. In times of changing gender norms and a steeply increasing interest in superhero stories, the unchanged masculinist structure in contemporary genre representatives becomes more apparent than ever. This paper examines how the subversive agenda of the superhero story Kick-Ass unmasks the masculinist nature of the very characteristics that define the superhero genre and how Kick-Ass deconstructs them by offering self-aware alternatives.

I like your candor, clarity and talent. -Maya Angelou The powerful messages in 7 Principles to Become Your Own Superhero acknowledge how difficult it is for women to change behaviors and thought processes hammered into their heads for centuries. Even when it doesn't feel right, women continue to do things they know are wrong. Poetry by Lissette Norman
