I would design a super belt with flying powers! If a super hero like Batman needed anything it would magically appear!

Maria, 10 from Bristol
My superhero would be Element Man. Element Man has the powers from within the Earth (wind,lightning,water,fire). His garment would be a silky red cape. It would have a huge Earth symbol in the center and pictures of wind, fire, water, and lightning in the four corners. Another garment that I would create would be springy shoes. I would make his shoes out of dark blue rubber and magic. The shoes will help him boost up quickly into the sky then drop into battle. I think Element Man's garments would be very useful to him during tough battles.

When WordGirl got her cape she found a bunch pockets with all kinds of gadgets. in one of those pockets there was a spell to make her fly and a baby monkey.

Gracie, 10 from Bristol VA.
My superhero's garment or cape would be flame retardant, silk, and filled with tons of helpful, crazy, and awesome gadgets. The gadgets would be a boomerang, a freeze ray, and a grappling hook.

A special vest with lots of pockets and loads of special hidden pockets for gadgets like a built in translator that goes right into your ears! Or a special pair of glasses that lets you read any language! Or a special cape that comes out and covers your entire body and protects it from radiation! Even BETTER: a pocket that ALWAYS has the exact amount of money you need every time you reach in!YAY!!

2/15/2014 1:50:18 PM
michelle, 8 from port chester
my super hero wold be book girl . Her garment would have gadgets that she could use during a battle.Her gadgets would be a shield that could block anything gooey or sticky ,and a force field ray that can block any super power that could hurt book girl.

2/14/2014 2:04:24 PM
KittyLover14, ?? from Florida :3
Hmm... Well, I think a weapon could be better then a garment. But I suppose a garment can hold a weapon someone could need, so it could come in handy. So why not a belt, but not any kind of belt. This belt,garment, has small holders for anything this hero needs! So, why wouldn't it come in handy? Hero's can't hold all their stuff, or they won't be able to have a free hand to defeat the villain. In conclusion, my garment is a belt.

2/13/2014 2:19:56 PM
bryce, 11 from ft.pierce
if I was desighning a gormet for a superhero I would make shure they had a cape that would hold all different kinds of things so that when a superhero needs a rope to tie a villain up theyed have one

Brandon, 12 from BristolVirginia
If I was designing a garment for my superhero it would have a place for a phone or a secret weapon or a healthy snack to eat. So,what my superheros garment can do is it can make him,or her invisible and the bad guys can not see him,or her.

If I were to design a garment for a superhero,it would be a pair of boots.These boots wouldn't be like any other boots,becuase they would give you the super power.The power would be the ability to fly.Along with the boots would be a super secret pocket for you to carry a snack.This is what the garment I had to design for a superhero would look like.

My superhero is Weather Woman. She has the power to control the weather. Her weakness is solar-powered things. I would make her an earpiece that allows her to hear thunder or lightning that's far away. She can only use weather that's already in the sky, not make her own.

Marie, 15 from Baton Rouge
Every super hero should have a body suit that can make him invisible when he needs to hide, or enables him to blend into the environment so that he is undetected. I would prefer that the suit be black or silver with a slight sheen. It must be fire proof, water proof, bullet proof, and cannot be torn or cut. The suit must also be flexible to allow ease of movement, and provide comfort any climate.

10/24/2013 1:48:10 PM

My hero is hoing to be WordGirl because she is both heroic and intelligent! As many good superheroes, they must need supernatural power or gadgets. I think that WordGirl should have a force field watch that hinder the Butcher's meat attack, the Whammer'a wham and Chuck's condiment ray useless.

Me, 8 from Chesapeake
My superhero angry bird is quite interesting looking. Mary, my bird, can do all my work if she jumps fast enough. She has a spring on the bottom of her feet. All I have to do is start her jumping and when she can jump 10 times in 10 seconds her magical power kick on and she changes into a super pen. She has a clip for a head. Her body is pink and yellow. She has purple ink and is the most beautiful cursive writer you have ever seen. Once she changes, she gets my bookbag and she does all my grading. Isn't it wonderful that she is so interesting?

1/27/2012 1:23:11 PM
Jessica, 8 from Cambridge
My superhero is named Rosa. She can go under water and fly in outer space. For going underwater, she wears a mask and body suit so she can swim quickly. For flying in outer space, she wears a mask so meteors can't hit her face and a cape for flying. Her gadgets will be building tools so she can build a submarine or spaceship, cutting tools when someone is stuck, some snacks if she is exhausted, a fishing pole so she can save fish, and a picture of her home that she can jump into when she needs to get home.

Peyton, 11 from Weaverville, North Carolina
If I could design any garment for any superhero, I'd pick "Super Man". I have to say that I'm not a very good designer, but I like to design anyways. I'd give him a shiny red suit made out of undistructable silk. his clothing would be fire proof, and undistructible, since he gets himself into a lot of different, and dangerous problems. He would have a built in lazer gun, cell phone, pocketknife to cut through anything (Ropes, wood, brick etc.), heathy foods, and an extra cape just in case also built in with all the interestring gadgets. All of the built-in things would be invisible to any other eyes, humans and every other creature. Super man would love it, and thousands and millions of people worldwide love it.
