|Batgirl, the O.G. Super Librarian|
Ever wanted to be a super hero? How about a librarian super hero? Gale, a company within Cengage Learning, has announced the "Are You a Librarian Superhero Contest" to unmask library superheroes. A nominated librarian will be announced at this year's ALA conference and be published in a comic.
My thoughts on this? Do not do this librarian superheroes! Giving up your identity is the first mistake in superherodom! Captain America fought and died to protect your identities (not that it did much good) and let us not even talk about how much of a steaming crap heap Spider-man's life and comics became after unmasking. Just ask yourself, WWBGD? What would Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) Do? That lady took a bullet and kept on going! Surely you can do the same library super heroes!
Does anyone else think "Gale" sounds like a supervillian's name? What other library-centric things sound "superheroey"? What would your superhero librarian name be? What would be your powers? Discuss.
