How Well Do You Know Your Heroes?

It is Saturday, which is superhero day around here. I’m still in a bit of a costume mode so let’s talk about superhero costumes. More often than not, cool superhero costumes have cool logos plastered front and center. Whether it is a stylized graphic or just the first letter of the hero’s name, these icons serve as a visual shorthand, something that instantly makes you think of the character in question.

Given that, how many heroes can you identify out of the ones pictured below? Some are easy, some are obscure, but all of them are pretty darn cool. I’ll post the answers for these later in the week. Good luck!

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Kudos!

    • Hi Angelo. Thanks for the kind words.
      If you want to be a writer you need to write a lot. That sounds almost too simple but it isn’t an easy thing to do. (I’m still working on it myself.) Writing is a craft and it gets better with practice. One of my beta readers =mentioned that he can see an improvement between my last book and the one I just released. Everything you write is going to be a little bit better than the last thing that you wrote so it just makes sense to write as much as possible.
      You should also be reading as much as you can. I read at least a book a week and have been doing that for decades. Read all kinds of stuff: short stories; novels; fiction; non-fiction. Read outside of your genre. I write fantasy but I read horror, mysteries, historical fiction, espionage/thrillers and military sci-fi.
      Go back to the stuff that you really love and read it again. This time analyze how the author built the story, how they defined their characters. Try doing something similar yourself.

      This blog is one of the free WordPress sites and I would definitely recommend that to anyone just starting out. Their tools are real simple to use. Plus, it doesn’t make sense to put money into something you might not stick with. You can always upgrade to your own paid site later and many of the paid sites run the WordPress software as well.

      Good luck!
