Ever thought Peter Parker was a dumb name? Perhaps you hate Bruce Wayne's poncy moniker? Or maybe you just want to be Dave Lizewski? Well, now you can do better: you can be the alter ego for Mark Millar's next superhero, Superior.
In something of a tradition for the Kick-Ass scribe, Millar is auctioning off the name to his next comic book character, giving everyone a chance to live on in the pages of graphic novel history. And very possibly on screen as well.
Superior, launching in October, is the story of a young boy who has multiple sclerosis. Then, one day, thanks to a magical wish, he becomes the superhero of his dreams. It's written by Millar, and drawn by Leinil Yu - the only thing missing is that character's name.
"We had great success with the Kick-Ass and Nemesis auctions, and hopefully we can raise a similar sum again with this opportunity," says Millar on the auction's page. "Dave Lizewski is now an action figure and movie icon as well as a comic-book character and both Matt Anderson and Blake Morrow are delighted to find themselves as the leads in the upcoming Tony Scott adaptation of Nemesis."
All proceeds from the auction will go towards a special needs unit in a school where Millar's brother, Dr Bobby Millar, has been raising cash for handicapped children for several years.
Head over to ebay make your bid. You've got until 16:24 on Thursday 9th September.
