Villains and Vast Expectations

So, I had a meeting with the Iron Lung yesterday. For those of you who don’t know who that is, he is a trainer of all things super powered. He was once a great Superhero but now focuses his time on training the next generation. Only the students with the most potential even get to the level where they can know his name and by the time he is done, you will have reached levels you never thought possible with your powers. I was lucky; The Star was the first person to tell me about him and if she hadn’t I would be a third rate sidekick right now, just waiting for my chance to shine.

Anyways, back to yesterday. It was all new to me. You see, in a few weeks try outs will be held for one of the most elite super teams in the whole school. Only a few really talented people can make it. It’s much easier for heroes then heroines because there are less of them then us. We have to try so much harder then them just because our chromosomes say double x. Plus, most of the boys in school are afraid of wearing tights for reasons I’m sure you can figure out on your own.

I’m trying out for the spot of team villain expert. This basically means that I’m in charge of knowing our enemies like the back of my hand. It’s a tough job because I also have to learn how to convince one of them that I am evil, if ever the need should arise.

That’s what I was working on with the Iron Lung. Apparently I’m not very convincing yet. He told me to go and watch some Super Villains to see if I get inspired but so far I haven’t found anything to useful. I’m sure it’s out there. I just haven’t found it yet.

Any suggestions? Let me know.

Ever yours,
Secretly Supergirl.


  1. Try channeling Velma Kelly. (How do you spell Lipshitz anyway?)

  2. Maybe you should channel Tank Girl.

  3. You go girl, the world needs all the superheroes it can get.
