Superhero Geist visited the LaCanne Park Celebration of Flood Recovery event. He is one of between one hundred and fifty and two hundred ‘real life superheroes’ who operate in the United Sates, distributing general merriment in a variety of situations. They range in age from 15 to 50, create heroic identities and wear costumes. Almost all have two traits—a love of comics and a desire to improve their communities (from City Pages, 2008). Sunday’s Superhero Geist had words of encouragement for the crowd as he mingled with attendees. He effectively communicated his upbeat attitude.
