Introduction: How to Become a Superhero

Picture of How to Become a Superhero

Through this instructable I will show you how to tap into your inner powers (if any) and become the next Batman, Hulk, or Martian Manhunter. Remember with great power comes great popularity and ability to beat the $h!t out of your arch enemy. So read on and please rate.

Step 1: Find Your Power

Don't dive in the biohazardous stuff just yet because you might just  have a hidden power somewhere in you. First go through this list...
Get some Kryptonite and feel if weakness falls upon you if not...
Try running as fast as you can and vibrate through a wall. Try while nobody is around so you dont look like a fool. If this doesn't work please...
Try jumping off a roof and fly. Make sure to have a trampoline ready if your not sure already. If this alas doesn't not work then...
Make your hand in a rockstar and see if web shoots out.
Look at somebody while your head is on fire and burn their soul.
Find your secret claws that shoot out when your angry.
God of Thunder?
Fraid of Bats?
Turn green when mad?
Clobberin' time?
Nothing? Next Step

Step 2: Costume

Ok. You either have or dont have a superpower. If not think and practice fighting and train to be able to defeat. Next you have to get a costume. Now no KMart here so either fabric from you alien spacecraft, a suit that comes from a ring or make it yourself. Please no more Crazy Quilt Designs(see Pic).

Step 3: Secret Lair and HQ

When you have a hard time keeping your plane because the landlord doesn't like jets on his property you need a secret lair. When thinking of a place try to not make it obvious (public land! Spiderman didn't hide his stuff in central park!) and watch for people placing signs to your location (see Pic). Also don't be to elaborate. If your on a tight budget, your basement or maybe a abandoned warehouse could work. It is such a pity that there are no phone booths around me so I use the place nobody would suspect. A giant Fortress of Solitude in  Antarctica is something nobody would know about. Nobody at NASA noticed a giant crystal castle on the Earth?

Step 4: Catchphrase

Before you start you need that little touch that adds effect to your character. Its clobberin' time! ,HULK SMASH! , and Faster than a speeding bullet etc. are some of the good ones. also unless you want to carry your Ipod around to play it you will need a theme song. Don't ask me how to pick it just make it up.

Step 5: Gadgets

Now some heroes have classier gadgets than others. Rings, Batarangs, Smoke Grenades,and Grapples are the simplest. If your an ordinary you will need these to survive a fight or dangerous situations.

Step 6: Leagues and Groups

Now you must team up with others and fight the powers of evil. Now chances are there is no craigslist add "Alien in need of team with which to fight crime. No Fire. Love oreos." so your on your own with that one.

Step 7: Enemies

Now watch because as soon as your publicized the villains will pop up like mushrooms. Just  keep an eye out for power hungry beings who are obsessed with something weird ie. Jokes riddles toys bombs etc. and have a nice time with your double life.

I'm a Archer my code name is Arsenal my HQ is my attic

TheAmazingMaker (author)2014-09-04

I actually have a superpower (IM NOT KIDDING) I have the power to tell the future and what will happen. Now I was actually born with this power, but I didn't realize it until last year! I can also control what will happen, like for example Im about to get heat stroke (not really) but i want to be colder, so I make it so its cold in my mind, then a breeze comes, or maybe the AC turns on. But I'm happy that I have a power and I'm trying to get telekinesis! -wish me luck!

Maybe instead of mastering telekinesis you should try rehab (not sure what type of drugs you are on).

Nukey (author)Spencer Snider2017-01-06

He is probably not on drugs u might as well belive him. After all he actually could have powers

GreatW1 (author)TheAmazingMaker2016-04-16

i know your telling the truth wanna know why... because exactly what you said i can do

basye (author)TheAmazingMaker2016-04-13

I think we all have that "power". It's only a matter of who's willing to acknowledge and pursue it. But, I'm really happy for you! If you find anything interesting please share!

GeorgeF49 (author)2016-04-24

Nukey (author)GeorgeF492017-01-06

got to find an enemy

wolfsingleton (author)2010-03-08

Classic!  Make sure to add in:

*A secret Lair - Mom's basement or the Mall bathroom should suffice.
*Catchphrase/Theme music - no Hannah Montana, I don't care if YOU think it's scary!
...and most importantly...
*Merchandising - You know what kind of profits can be made with a bobblehead?!

I will add a secret lair and maybe a theme song but who wants to have their face everywhere? wait never mind, i will add it.
