I need a hero

Slowman, the man who is backward in coming forward

I just discovered a fantastic site playing a game with superheroes. It’s called The Superest (Who is the superest hero of them all?) and it’s hilarious. As the creators of the site, Kevin Cornell and Matthew Sutter explain, the rules are as follows:-

“Player 1 draws a character with a power. Player 2 then draws a character whose power cancels the power of that previous character. Repeat.”

The result is a gallery of daft superheroes with dodgy powers, each one getting sillier and funnier as the game progresses. The site is beautifully designed, with lots of lovely touches and I really love the limited colour pallet. Good job fellas!

Pictured above: In keeping with the fact that I discovered this site so late (it’s been running since October 2007), I have created my own superhero, Slowman, the man who is backward in coming forward.
