SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Move over Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman, a new legion of superheroes are rising.

On July 10 at the Superhero Street Fair in San Francisco, regular Joes will get a chance to show off their extraordinary superpowers to civilians, as folks are invited to show up wearing their very own, made-up superhero outfits.

The new breed of action heroes then get to display their personal superpowers, which could be any number of things.

Though no one can “fly or shoot lasers out of their fingers” like comic book heroes, spokesman Joegh Bullock says they can try to wow the audience with abilities like singing, dancing, or painting.

They could even show off their kissing skills on stage, if that’s their forte.

Bullock thinks that by embracing their own special powers and looking deep inside themselves, people will realize how super they really are and “hopefully feel those powers in them throughout the year.”
