Re: Aikido is Not the Next Reality Show

Is it weird that I was reading about the show Who Wants To Be A Superhero and imagining what a comic book hero who did Aikido would be like?

The show was pretty campy, but you actually got dinged for typical reality show scumbag tactics; it's a show about heroes after all. I imagined a character who had psychic empathy for other people's pain, and as part of her training studied aikido both to controll her reactions and to deal with bad guys in ways that would cause both them and herself the least pain.
One of my favourite poets recently created a super-hero Empath Man
