The desire to be a superhero seems to be spreading globally, as the BBC reported a foiled home invasion. On New Years Eve, a man broke into the home of Torvald Alexander, in Edinburgh Scotland. Torvald was on his way out to a party when he came face to face with the intruder. To the man's surprise, Torvald was dressed as Thor. The man went back out the window, slid off the roof and ran away.
Personally, I think it is because we still have wait until next Monday for the premiere of the next installment of Heroes. No one tell my boys about this hero business, they already have enough of a superhero complex.
