So I’ve had this idea for a really long time: create a mini-web comic about an introverted superhero- as in their introversion is their super power. I would talk about the trials and tribulations that come with that situation. Today, I added even more to the idea.
What if it was not just an introvert but a team with one introvert and one extrovert? A couple that no one expected. Fresh new adults, they are each trying to get by in occupations that do not fit with their personalities at all. She is a secretary who answers the phone and sets up appointments for an up and coming CEO. He’s a freelance writer who works from home.
Her “super powers” are “invisibility”, “talking to animals”, and “hacking”. In other words, she wears all black and is so quiet that no one notices when she enters a room. She prefers animals to humans and understands them much better. She has mastered internet because she uses it daily to avoid people.
His “super powers” are “charming”, “psychic abilities”, and “master of disguise”. In short, he’s so charismatic that he can get anyone to like him. He knows enough about a lot of people to be able to either call in favors, appeal to their wants/needs, or play up their fears. He never seems out of place in crowds because he’s assertive enough to convince people that he can belong anywhere where there’s a lot of people.
To make things interesting, they have friends that are twin ambiverts who work in law, which is how Introvert Girl and Extrovert Boy get their information.
Right now, this idea is just in the idea phase and who knows if it will go anywhere. Still, I personally would love to make this. Would anyone read it?
