The boyfriend and I have been watching a lot of X-men lately. We started watching “Wolverine and the X-Men.” It is an animated series which centers around Wolverine leading the X-Men after Professor X falls into a coma. From there, I watched ALL the movies. To say I’ve had superheros on the brain is an understatement. So… I decided for my self-portrait this week I would conjure up some powers of my own. I notice, whenever I watch some superhero related movie, cartoon or TV show, there is always a point when the hero first discovers that they are different. Sometimes characters are thrilled by this discover but other times, not so much. Unfortunately, more often than not, these people fall prey to bad things happening because they don’t know how to handle their abilities yet. For this picture, I wanted to tap into the vulnerability that I’m sure comes with knowing your different and that you can’t control what is happening to you.
