Try It Out
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... Waffleman?
You may not know it, but The League of Lesser-Known Superheroes gathers for top-secret meetings on rainy days. Allow us to introduce you to some interesting people you might like to hang out with the next time you find yourself stuck indoors.
Meet Waffleman! Responsible for ensuring the safety and deliciousness of Brunchopolis, Waffleman flies through the air on a piece of toast with his trusty sidekick, Captain Fork.
Together the duo defends the city from the evil Dr. Broccoli and his army of asparagus. Waffleman's secret defense? The sticky power of maple syrup, of course.
Then there are the misadventures of The Great P. Skooblini, with his left on his right and his right on his left, turning north instead of south and east instead of west. Whenever he's dispatched on a superhero call, you never know just where he will end up, but you can be sure it's not where he's supposed to be.
Now that you've made a few new superfriends, why not join them? You've just received a special invitation to join the rainy day meeting of The League of Lesser-Known Superheroes. Before you receive the secret password, you'll need to become one of the gang!
Ask your child what kind of superhero he or she would like to be. What kinds of things will his or her superhero do? What will he or she wear?
Be creative as you bring the superhero to life. Superheroes defy all rules. Anything goes!
Once you've written your superhero biography, it's time to get suited up. Dig into dress-up clothes and grab doodads from around your home to use as costume accessories. Earmuffs double as noise-canceling headphones, rendering mind-control sound waves useless on you!
Gaze into a magnifying glass capable of hypnotizing evil villains. Pop on a pair of old swimming goggles when you need sudden X-ray vision.
And of course no superhero is complete without a cape! Grab a towel or sheet and you're ready to roll... or fly as the case may be.
