A Sneak Peak of Tomorrow – Hero today, Reality Tomorrow

They just ended the”voting” phase of this contest to “create a hero for the 21st century” and the “Stan Lee Foundation”. As you all know Stan Lee was in part responsible for the comic book stories and characters that have affected our culture and its thinking for over 50 years.
This world wide contest offers a unique view into the psyche of todays younger creative set. it would be wise for many to study the galleries. What you see there, mutliply by 1000, and youll have some idea of the future societies to come. Both Real and Virtual, and of course , combined;)
Many designs are “tracings” of older comic book, super heroes that have been our cultural gods and goddesses, or myths for a century, but others are something new. Something that will be as strange as a man in a bat outfit fighting crime was in 1940. Or of heroes who got “superpowers” from “radioactive” accidents in the early -mid cold war atomic 60s.
I tossed in an entry…I had an idea that i thought might be a good “design/idea” for the Lee Foundation. After the contest ends I’ll add some thoughts on the contest, creativity in the age of the web and social media values .
Till then, I truly suggest the look at Tomorrow the rather large gallery offers.:)
