Damsel in Distress

1:38 AM



I found someone for my superhero to save. Yes, it looks like your typical run-of-the-mill circus performer has kidnapped some poor princess...I don't know how he ended up with a vest and top hat. The moustache makes sense to me, but the vest? With no shirt underneath? I can't quite remember where I was going with that. I suppose it makes the villain more unlikable, but not in a scary way.

As for the girl, I know it's not very PC to have a lady tied up waiting to be saved by a superdude. But you know what? James Bond movies are lame when the girl is all tough and can save herself. (Also, James Bond movies with angry circus performers are not very good either...watch Octopussy if you don't believe me.) Sometimes I think it's just fine to come up with stories where the girl gets rescued.

And let's not forget the monkey. What's his story? Does he have superstrength, or are we meant to assume that he has some very capable tools to break through the bricks? Either way, when deciding on Superdude's sidekick, a monkey seemed like the clear choice. Why wouldn't it be? And to clarify, the mouse is an innocent bystander, not an evil apprentice to the circus villain. Let's be realistic.
