Who is your favorite comic or cartoon superhero and why? Who is your favorite comic or cartoon villain and why?
I love the superhero metaphor! And the way I see it; both villains and superheroes are inspiring – they have strong goals and intentions, they pull together teams of people with similar values, and they plan to make their dreams happen. They figure out who they are and what they want, and they make it happen (using colors and symbols to remind them of their awesomeness). I like to think there’s a fictional story that resonates with all of us, and what a gift, to be inspired by cool and vulnerable characters (both heroes and villains) that kick ass! The idea that we all have gifts and challenges is empowering. The idea that some of us are born super, some become super with training, and some with tools or ideas (or traumas), is inclusive and diverse and exactly what the world needs.

A new favorite of mine is Marvel’s Domino (Neena Thurman) – her superpower is manipulating probability, something that looks a lot like luck. This idea of a superpower being even more subtle and intangible that physical strength or a gear-packed batcave is exciting to me. Every person has something special about them that will change the world once they embrace it, and what if our job here is just to figure out how we can best serve the world with our superpowers?
