I finally saw “X-Men: First Class” over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The recent spate of comic book pictures has me thinking about what Sacramento could use in a superhero. (Okay, let’s be honest, I didn’t need any help thinking about this.)
You know that things are bad all over because of the budget, and that our crime problems continue apace. (Being facetious there.) But what exactly does our area need? A streetwise crime stopper like Luke Cage? (One of my favorites–somebody please green light that Old Spice guy Luke Cage pitch!) A cosmic powerhouse along the lines of a Green Lantern? Perhaps a Dark Knight could rise to reluctantly help the cash strapped police department? Or maybe you see Sacramento as being led by a strong but ultimately evil mortal man like a Lex Luthor or a Norman Osborn?
I’d like to hear from the geeks out there: What are the ideal powers for a Sacramento based superhero or super squad? Maybe we can get some sketches of some of the winners.
