Last week we had a few creative moments during a lesson on English literature…
“From Beowulf to Batman – how has the figure of the hero changed?” had been the students’ homework for that day. After discussing about heroes like Beowulf, Robin Hood, King Arthur, Batman, Spiderman, Superman, and a couple of others (I’m sorry I can’t remember their names, some strange bionic alchemists, hehe), we had some time left and the class split into groups, each group having to “design” a new hero…
here are the results… who is your favourite?

Street Shark, whose real name is Paul Shark, can transform himself into a half-human shark whenever he wants to. He is very strong and he can live both on the earth or underwater. He has got enormous jaws. He is more skilled than a shark under water, and more skilled than a human on the earth.
He likes sushi very much.
He is very bad with humans because they want to destroy the waterworld. He comes from the waterworld (the underwater world inhabited by half-fish men).
He is arrogant, self-confident and brave. He has terrible jaws and a superhuman strength.
He was a human being. During a hurricane he fell in the sea and died. The inhabitants of waterworld found him and gave him life again transforming him into a half-shark man.
Now he fights against humans.
