We Could Be Heroes / by Beth Winegarner

My daughter, who is 8, wants to be a superhero for Halloween this year. When I tell people this, they often ask, "Which one?"

But she doesn't want to be any of the mass-market superheroes out there. She wants to be a superhero version of herself. Her costume is a pair of purple pants, a black shirt with her first initial printed boldly on the chest, a red cape with a star on the back, and a mask. 

When I asked her what her super powers are, she said: "Flying, teleporting, making whatever I want appear, super strength and super speed."

What is your superhero costume? What are your super powers?
