Ka-Boom! Pow! (and other heroic lingo)

Man oh man, did I ever want to be Wonder Woman when I was little. What girl in the 80s didn't want to take down bad guys in smokin' red boots, gold cuffs and a tiara? Lynda Carter made it seem so...twirly. Not to mention the killer vocabulary inherent in comic book hero-ness. Whamm! Zing! Ka-Pow! Life just sounds more exciting in onomatopoeia, doesn't it?

Well, if you can relate at all to my comic book identity envy, I have a site for you. You can customize your own superhero here! I know, I know, Lynda had it better: one twirl and she was transformed. But, with just a few clicks, you too can become heroic!

Check me out:

Thanks Jenni at One Thing for helping me fulfill my childhood dream.

Buzz! Whiz! Bang! Reality check: my two-year-old is reminding me that life, indeed, is NOT more exciting in onomatopoeia. (i'm off to become baroness von dual-chambered vacuum)

Hey, if you create your own hero, tell me! I wanna come see... !!

Too funny! I'll have to definitely try that. That is so funny that you mentioned the 80's and Lynda Carter because my dad loves her and he and my mom just the other day dressed up for an 80's party. They won "best couple." You may have seen their picture on my blog but it brought back fun 80's memories!
