How to Build a Super-Heroine

Developing your characters can be a delightful task or a painful one, but when those characters are of the super-powered variety, you’ve got an even bigger challenge. In this workshop, Eilis Flynn will examine how super-heroes, and in particular super-heroines, are a little different from other characters you’re creating. What do you have to look for, what do you have to beware of, what do you have to know in order to make the strongest, most memorable super-heroine you can? Using suggestions about powers, weaknesses, origin stories, and personality from the workshop attendees, we’ll build a sample super-heroine to inspire your own stories and super-heroes.
