Snakes and Rocket Packs

A sure-fire formula for success: animal + rocket pack = awesomeness. Indeed. Can you imagine a gazelle with a rocket pack, or better yet, a koala with a rocket pack? Narwhals with rocket packs?! Yeah. Talk about cool. And nothing makes for more entertainment than a snake with a rocket pack.

This little guy is actually a dragon-snake (complete with flame-retardant scales, which is why the rocket's flame isn't burning his tail off). He's obviously less menacing than he looks, though. For, as we all know, it's very difficult for dragon-snakes to steer when flying.

His powers were no match for the bow pose.

The Caver

As Prof. Calhoun descended, he distinctly heard his stomach rumble. But it wasn't his.

Step 5 - Optional: Find a Sidekick (Part 6 of 10)

The art of sidekicking is fast losing favor among superpeople. Perhaps the egocentricity of this generation means superheroes don’t want much help anymore--they feel confident on their own. Batman even seems to have left Robin to fend for himself. Still, many find sidekicks to be of great assistance. They provide moral support, comic relief, and are unquestionably loyal. (If you ask them to refinish your deck while you’re away, it will get done.) Additionally, if your own powers aren’t quite up to industry standards, a sidekick can provide critical backup in intense combat. Conversely, sidekicks’ thirst for the limelight can be obnoxious, their jokes and catch phrases get old, and they usually want a 30%+ cut of your merchandising revenues.

She'd never fit in. At least, that's what everyone thought.
