When STAN KIRBY was six years old, he tied a beach towel around his neck and became Super Commander Beach Boy. He tried his best to protect sand castles from the waves, keep seagulls away from his french fries, and keep the beach clean. When Stan’s not creating the awesome adventures of Captain Awesome, he loves reading comic books, eating okra, and hang gliding (but not at the same time).
GEORGE O’CONNOR’S cover - as a mild-mannered clerk in one of Gotham’s most beloved children’s bookstores - was completely blown when his first picture book, KAPOW!, exploded onto the scene. Forced to leave the bookselling world behind, he now spends even more time in his secret Brooklyn, New York, hideout - where he uses his amazing artistic powers to strike fear in the hearts of bad guys everywhere!
Eight year-old Eugene McGillicudy is on a mission to protect the universe from a comical, quirky cast of “bad guys” like Queen StinkyPants, Dr. Spinach and Mister Drools. Luckily, his superhero alter-ego is none other than Captain Awesome!
Every superhero has a battle cry they like to yell out when they’re fighting evil or getting ready to fight evil. Some of them yell out stuff like, “Up, up and there we go!” or “Take that, bad guy!” or Captain Awesome's favorite, “MI-TEEEE!”
It’s important to let villains know that you’re coming so they can get scared and shake in their boots. Superhero sidekicks have battle cries, too. I like to yell out, “Don’t forget about me!” and “Hamster power!” Then I roll the Turbomobile right over their bad guy toes.
Everybody needs a battle cry!
