The Unbelievables: A step beyond

Here's something people say to us all the time:
"Yeah, yeah, yeah. We get it. You guys are heroes. But why aren't you super heroes? Why don't you really commit to the concept and develop super abilities, wear super costumes, have super secret identities and fight super battles. Super heroes are very in right now, or have you not noticed Batman, The Avengers and the X-Men? Something to think about."

Well, first of all, it's odd that different people use this exact same phrasing when they pose this query.
Secondly, why don't you stop over-using the word "super"? Something for you to think about.
Thirdly, we already have it all covered.
We can fly...

What we wear certainly qualifies as "super"...
Who needs costumes when you have clothes?
And it's a little late for secret identities, don't you think?
But if we were to be "super heroes", I'd be Captain Unbelievable. And my personal style preference would be to opt for a "classic" look with bright, primary colors, boots with cuffs and actual wings on the side of my head, not some murky, oily looking Under Armour ensemble with wings painted on the side of a helmet. No, I'd go for something like this...
Also, I'd be able to turn invisible.
I'm sure my colleagues have their own opinions on this matter, which they will share with you later this week.
