Superheroes

to the Rescue

by Mary Erickson, Ph.D. and Arizona art teacher, Laurie Eldridge, Ph.D.

slide2

A Superhero or Superheroine is:

  • A character who has extraordinary or superhuman powers,
  • Is dedicated to protecting the public, (has a strong moral code),
  • Has a backstory that explains his/her motivation,
  • Lives and acts within a particular setting (time and place), and
  • Has a costume that protects a secret identity.
slide3

Begin planning your superhero/heroine action comic strip by identifying his or her:

  • Super power or ability
  • Strong moral code
  • Motivation
  • Costume
  • Setting

A middle school student began by planning a backstory for “Miss Galaxy.”

slide4

“Miss Galaxy”

  • Can transform into objects, is invisible and can fly.
  • She fights for her people who are weak.
  • She wants to travel the galaxy because her home planet was destroyed.
  • Her story takes place in another galaxy.

One way artists add excitement to their drawings is by cropping them. Cropped images are “close ups” framed so the image is partially cut off.

How does the cropped image focus your attention? On what?

Both of these Batman images are cropped. Which image is more dramatically cropped? Where?

The middle school student who developed this superheroine named “Star” made a close-up drawing cropped at the bottom.

An action story needs a plot. Arizona Todd Harris was a real hero who gave his life for his country. (Yes, his first name was “Arizona.”)

Beginning: Harris left Tempe to

serve as a gunner in the US Air Service.

Middle: Damaged by German

fighters, his bomber landed in the

EnglishChannel.

Climax: Harris stayed at his gun firing

at the fighters as his plane sank.

Conclusion: He was posthumously

awarded The Distinguished Service

Cross, Air Medal with Oak Leal Cluster

and a Purple Heart.

slide10

This middle school student’s plot for “Mr. Robot’s Flying Adventure” also has a

  • beginning
  • middle
  • climax
  • conclusion
slide11

This middle school student is translating his plot into a series of four drawings with words that tell his story of the “Elemental Hero.”

slide13

Your assignment is to create an action comic strip that tells in words and images the story of a heroic action taken by your own superhero by:

  • Developing a superhero.
  • Practicing cropping.
  • Developing a plot.
  • Creating your own superhero action comic strip.

slide14

What sort of Superhero or Superheroine would you like to develop?

What plot could you show in your action comic strip ?

slide15

More advanced students might want to try using foreshortening to add more excitement to their drawings.

Foreshortening emphasizes how closer objects appear larger than more distant objects.

slide16

This spoof on superheroes uses both cropping and

foreshortening to focus attention and add excitement.
