When the full moon is bright,
Comes a horseman known as Zorro.
This bold renegade
Carves a 'Z' with his blade
A 'Z' that stands for Zorro
Zorro --The Fox so cunning and free
Zorro --Who makes the sign of the 'Z'
Party was great, thanks for asking, but what wouldn't I give to have superpowers?
Not technically a superhero, I know, but with Zorro's sword I could have sliced carrots and celery for the dip as well. Never mind, the crackers were enough.
And with Spiderman's web...
I could have flung myself much more quickly from kitchen to lounge to deck to backyard, making sure everyone had drinks and food and that children were doing ok. Never mind, the walk did me good.
And with Superman's x-ray vision
I could certainly have made sure that the bathroom was free before opening the door to throw a dirty tea towel into the laundry basket. Ew. We do have a lock, people, and it would be much nicer if you remembered to use it.
Are we sensing a theme here yet?
I did promise you a Super Root, Shoot or Marry this week.
Your choices this week (Rules here) are
The new Superman
Brandon Routh. I love the idea that he was discovered by the director walking into the bar he was tending. Also, that as a kid he wore Superman pyjamas. It's a bit like Katie having a Tom Cruise poster on her wall...
Batman, but not just any Batman.
I toyed with Adam West for a loooong time (ever since I was 10 and watched him pop the bubbles concealing some evil woman in a bubble bath, actually)
but in the end, by today's standards? The daggy grey leotard
just doesn't do it for me any more.
But this does.
When you make your Root Shoot Marry choices this week, kindly picture Batman with the sexy smile and broad shoulders of Mr George Clooney. I know his costume was even more bizarre than Adam West's. Deal with it.
And lastboy but not leastboy, back to the start of this post we go with yet another man in a mask, the legendary Zorro.
Antonio. Of course. Sigh.
so many to choose from, so little bandwidth.
Again, I was torn over Batgirl.
The Yvonne Craig character was something of a role model for me as a little girl.
But in the interests of accessibility I think we'd better go with young Alicia Silverstone.
And in the interests of a bit of edgy hotness, could we go past Jennifer Garner as Elektra?
Nope, I didn't think so.
And the final choice tonight is the one, the only
Has any superhero ever managed to look so tough and so prissy all at the same time?
Here she is holding onto her magic golden lasso with all the enthusiasm of a nun at a male impotence clinic. And remember her magic bracelets? The bullets just bounced off them!
As a special bonus this week, I'm throwing in a Wild Card.
If you really can't decide from either list, you are - for one week only - permitted to add a fourth option.
Can you guess who it is?
