This is Follow Friday, hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

Today's Question is:

Q. What superhero is your alter-ego?




I haven't Blog-hopped in a while, but I had to answer this one. 
My real-life superpowers, FYI, are:

- the ability to find almost anything in our apartment, no matter how long it's been since I've seen it or who had it last

- the ability to make surgers behave.

A surger is a machine that looks like this:
that uses 4-5 needles and two blades to make edges that look like this:
and it's a fussy, temperamental piece of equipment.

For my super-hero alter ego, though, I'm picking Shayera Hol, aka Hawkgirl
This version, obviously
Not for her complicated love life or backstory, but because, like Hawkgirl, I can be a fun, loving, complex person but still often feel like there should be "Less talking, MORE HITTING!"

I'm discovering so many "new" superheroes today! And congrats on your real-life superpowers...mine involve wielding pointy needles, too, only I use them for knitting. :)

New follower!
Happy FF!

Hopping through. Very cool that you're skilled with a serger. I'd like to learn to sew - serger or not.

Thanks for the comments, all! Sergers are especially useful if you're working with filmy fabric, because they can create nice edges. (They can also make a mess.)

Hawkgirl (this version) is from the Justice League animated series, which I highly recommend. Her basic premise is that she was a soldier on the planet Thanagar, but she's currently on Earth, where she teams up with the local heroes (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc.) to fight super-villains. And she has a romantic plotline with Green Lantern John Stewart. Of course, her favorite solutions to problems involve smashing bad guys with her electrified mace.
