In my continued effort to provide y’all with a complete abecedary of cape-wearing amazingness (click here for letters A and B), I’ve chosen this next one carefully. So carefully in fact, that it took me two months to get to it. That is precision work if I ever did see it.
Here is what happened. I didn’t want to pick Catwoman, because other than being slick, cool, and a tough lady with a cool ride I couldn’t find a link to teaching. I didn’t want to pick Captain America because… well. I find him boring. I apologize now to any Captain A fans. I’m open-minded about it, he’s just so… straight-laced!
And then my super hero trainer (you know who you are) told me about Captain Marvel. Neither of us could believe I didn’t already know about him, I was promptly assigned to watch this show, and I did.
“My parents told me that if you do good, good will come.”
“No protector, you say? And yet despite enduring countless tragedies and hardships, you’ve somehow managed to protect your perfect heart.”
Thank you to Billy Batson for becoming Captain Marvel so I could be reminded of that lesson.
