so my sister had homecoming last weekend and all the guys in her group secretly decided on undercover superhero identities and wore the corresponding colors to match the shirts underneath and revealed them during this picture and it was perfect.

Are we going to talk about the second guy along though

upworthy:

This Mom Was Tired Of Princesses. So She Did Something About It.

Professor Setsu Shigematsu found her efforts at limiting her daughter's exposure to princess culture ineffective. When she refused to buy princess dolls for her then-3-year-old, they only became more desirable. Rather than trying to enforce an impossible ban, she decided to write her own princess story.

That one story has grown into a whole series about princesses who get out there and solve problems, rather than waiting for a guy to save them. I think we can all agree that Prince Charming and his white horse haven't done much for us lately. Time to give the Guardian Princess Alliance a chance?

The princess industry is lucrative: DVDs, dresses, crowns, theme parties. But the story of going to the ball and waiting for Prince Charming is outdated.

So one Southern California mom has created a new princess series with modern sensibilities. Creator Setsu Shigematsu recasts princesses as environmentally conscious and not waiting around to be rescued.

At the heart of her series, The Guardian Princess Alliance, is what animates any fairy tale: simple storytelling.

"Once upon a time, there was a princess named Vinnea," begins the first book, Princess Vinea and the Gulavores. Vinnea, a member of a collective of diverse heroines more active than their traditional counterparts, is of African descent and is the guardian of plant life.

She protects the kingdom from unwholesome food grown by magic instead of nature.

Shigematsu, a professor of media and cultural studies at the University of California, Riverside, thought the typical fairy tale needed an overhaul.

"For my daughter’s 5th birthday, I decided to write an alternative princess story," Shigematsu says. "The kids really enjoyed it. But what was really surprising was the way the parents responded."

Parents told her she should publish, she said. Avoiding the years-long process of going through a major firm, Shigematsu is self-publishing the initial run of books, available in January.

Role Models For Independence, Still With Nice Dresses

A pair of 6-year-old fairy tale experts, Saya and Ivana, joined Shigematsu at her home recently for an informal reading. When asked to describe princesses, the girls name the typical accessories.

"I think of princesses that have long hair," Ivana says. "They have pretty shoes."

"I think of princesses who have colorful dresses," Saya says.

But Risti Marco, Ivana’s mom, says the Guardian Princesses provide better role models for her daughter than the traditional version.

"The Guardian Princesses, they are more like, go there and do it for yourself," Marco says. "You can do anything you put your mind into it. You don’t have to wait for anybody. You can work together with Prince Charming and do stuff for the world, but you don’t have to sit there and wait for him to rescue you."

Common Core, A Key Selling Point

While the books are already taking on a serious challenge — overhauling the princess archetype — Shigematsu says they’re also written to align with Common Core, the educational standards adopted by 45 states.

"This shift that’s happening across public education, with the Common Core standards, is to go beyond rote memory," she says. "So we’re designing our books to be fun and visually appealing, but beyond that we want our books to teach important moral and ethical principles. There are the Common Core language standards, but the environmental theme will also help connect our books with the sciences."

Gay Kolodzik, owner of the Frugal Frigate Children’s Bookstore in Redlands, Calif., says for those in the world of children’s literature, a Common Core designation is a pretty big deal.

"When I read all the publisher’s magazines that I read every day, if they say, ‘Meets Common Core,’ instantly I go right to it and look through it and see if it’s something that suits the store and suits the people that shop here," Kolokzik says. "It gets my attention quickly."

The Guardian Princesses face no evil stepmothers or dangerous spinning wheels. Instead, Vinnea leads a life of social activism against unnaturally modified foods.

"These fruits and vegetables are not natural," Vinnea accuses a villainous gulavore in the book. "They contain a dangerous chemical, admit it … Dolo, you’ve ruined our garden in order to feed the people this unhealthy food."

Glass slippers might be impractical for getting the job done, but just because she’s working hard doesn’t mean Princess Vinnea can’t wear shoes that are practical AND pretty.

Can we just have every superhero react like that?

"A spider bite… gave me abs…?"

"Being put in a barrel of radioactive waste… gave me abs…?" 

"Watching my parents die…gave me abs?"

New superhero comic, Spark!

bettersupes:

Hey, everyone! This is the creator of Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, here with a post I thought you all might like. WriterTed Anderson and I have made a pitch for a superhero comic!

The comic is about nine-year-old Lucia Marquez-Miller, who loves engineering, and uses her telekinetic powers to build and take things apart with her mind. She calls this power her spark!

As Spark, the world’s youngest superhero, she’s a junior member of a superhero team while also trying to live a normal life. Can Lucia juggle her friends and family while also saving the world from supervillains?

We’re posting a 15-page standalone comic here on tumblr to give readers an idea of what the book would be like.
