The ICP at THE POINT preteens have been off to a busy start this summer! Our class is looking at the theme of Heroes, and it’s hard work being a hero!
What is a hero? Did you know that superheroes like Superman are really just like anyone else? It wasn’t always about aliens and other worldly beings. The idea of a “super” hero is often the personification of our own hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Heroes fight crime and corruption and expose injustice. They are brave, strong, and sometimes even weak and they find strength through these weaknesses. A hero cares for someone other than himself or herself.
The heroes of our summer preteen class have their own tale to tell. Here is a list of our students, their hero alias name, and their superpowers:
|Name: Evan||Hero Alias: The Painter||Power: Paints Things to Life|
|Name: Elani||Hero Alias: The Timer||Power: Controls time/Time Travel|
|Name: Fritzi||Hero Alias: The Freezer||Power: Ice Powers|
|Name: Sean||Hero Alias: IDK||Power: Foresight|
|Name: Nailea||Hero Alias: Madula||Power: Reading Minds|
|Name: Lynessa||Hero Alias: The Winder||Power: Controls Weather|

The Villain: The Exposure.
We don’t yet know where he has come from, but we know we must stop him. The Exposure is exposing our black-and-white darkroom prints. As he does so the world around us begins to lose color and the citizens of Hunts Point are being pulled into the images! Only this team of unlikely heroes can save us now!
