Fearless boy

I’ve been thinking of a superhero, while watching my boys.  What if there was a mild mannered 10 year old who was struck by lightning (or some other such natural phenomenon that didn’t somehow kill him, but gave him abilities), and consequently gave him the power to HAVE NO FEAR.

It seems that those without fear tend to fare well.   It seems that if you lose your fear, you lose your ability to lose.  Because even if you lose, who cares?  You’re not  afraid of losing.

This superhero would have the ability to leap in front of cars to save people.  The act would make him superheroic.  He wouldn’t be any faster or stronger – but because he wasn’t afraid to ACT – that would be his power.

Also, he would have the power to ask a girl to his first middle school dance.  That would have served me well a few years ago.
