  1. 1. Brain Superheroes<br />Science fiction writers are always searching for good ideas for plots that will capture the interest of their readers. A common premise during one particular area era of science fiction movies was that radiation somehow altered biological processes, transforming normal human being into superhumans—some good and some evil.

You need to do the following:<br /><ul><li>Identify the area of the brain that would have to be altered

  3. 3. Create a simple story line in which the special ability would be useful.
  4. 4. Illustrate a 3-5 panel comic strip of the superhero saving the day (stick figures are OK…)</li></ul>You will present your superhero to the class. <br />You will be responsible for turning in the following:<br /><ul><li>Description of the superhero

A logo for your superhero (e.g., Superman has the “S” on his shirt)</li></ul>VALUE: 100 points (just like a packet or test)<br />You can use the back of this paper to help create your superhero. <br />Name of superhero ___________________________________________________<br />What super ability does this superhero possess?<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />_________________________________________________________________<br />What brain structure is modified? <br />__________________________________________________________________<br />What is your superhero’s secret identity?<br /> __________________________________________________________________<br />What simple plot would encourage this superhero to come to the rescue? <br />__________________________________________________________________<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />__________________________________________________________________<br />
