Neil Lewis liked superheroes as a young boy, but he told his son Matt that at age 16, he was now too old to still be fantasizing about being The Batman or the like.
“But, Dad, I’m going to the comic con to do a little cosplay, and there are quite a few parent/kid duos dressing up. How about you join me this weekend, coz we don’t get to catch up since you work so much?”
Neil agreed – but was shocked at Matt’s choice. THE BLACK CANARY?
“Hey, a lot of cosplay is dressing in drag. Besides, Grandma told me that you used to get girled up for fun in high school. How about instead of father-son bonding, we try mom-daughter instead? I bet we’ll win!”
Sure enough, NICOLE really enjoyed stretching her sexy legs as a “crime fighting” blonde babe. But just as much, she appreciated spending time with MOLLY. They didn’t win the SuperCon costume prize, but they did accept the invitation of Eric Powell (Sr. and Jr.), who came as Doctor Whos 4 & 11, respectively, to take the Canaries out for a post-Con dinner date.
“Mom, I think they would make such awesome boyfriends!”
