Lesson 2 | Developing Your Story

Continue your character sheets by clearly defining your hero and villain’s powers.

  • What are your comic book character’s names?
  • What are their strengths and weaknesses?
  • Do they have superpowers?
  • How did they get these powers?
  • What would cancel out their powers?
  • What do they look like? Do they wear a costume?

If your hero can start fire, then you’re villain should have the power to easily extinguish the fire with wind, water, or perhaps covering it up.

On the backside of the character sheet, write down the Beginning, Middle and End of your story. Sometimes it helps to start at the end and work your way to the beginning. A good story will have obstacles your hero must work hard to overcome.
