Taken from a blog: “Superhero Watch”
Ooooowie. Fan girls and fan boys, have I got a scoop for you! You know I’ve been trying to get a pic of the elusive Embellisher for ages, and I nearly–nearly!–got one last night.
If you were anywhere near the Fox & the Fiddle on Bloor (by the ROM!), then you couldn’t have missed it! Dozens of superheroes gathered in one place, and who did I spy at the center of it all? The Mayor herself!
*fans self* Dear readers, I must admit, I was swooning all over the place. It was all I could do not to beg for a selfie with all those extraordinary folks all together in one place like that!
And now for some speculation: because I can’t just let it pass. Why were so many superheroes all together in one place like that? What could they possibly be up to?
Theory one: some kind of reunion or maybe a special occasion? Could there be a wedding on the way or maybe a baby? Probably not: I didn’t see anyone carrying gifts, and while everyone looked happy to see each other, this humble blogger also picked up on a nervous tension in the air. Even the Cheerleader seemed to be taking things seriously!
Theory two: some kind of superhero turf war being settled by the community. I couldn’t hear anything, but I saw the Mayor and the Curator speaking. The Curator, people! I haven’t heard of a Curator sighting in months. But last night I saw her addressing the crowd. And that leads me to my most likely theory:
Theory three: something foul is afoot! While those three might come together to chair some kind of council to settle a superhero dispute, what’s most likely? That superheroes are being brought together to face a common enemy. What else would unite the likes of Morpheus, Agent Panter, and the Brobdingnagian Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobe?
And if I’m right? Expect a lot more superhero sightings in the weeks to come, my lovelies. I’ll be carrying my camera from now on, and if you catch any footage of superheroes doing superheroic things, you send me your best images. We’re going to get to the bottom of this!
Ta-ta for now!
