17 Superhero Writing Prompts

Capturing the attention of a writers creativity, so that a story starts to weave its way into existence is a wonderful thing.

Consider a superhero, whether with fantastic powers beyond human ability, or simply an extraordinary character with a driving force to their actions.

Yes, the superhero is a concept enough to grab the attention of even the most reluctant writers!

How should you use story starters like these?

Writing can be inspired through all sorts of ways.

One very effective method is through the use of writing prompts, to throw ideas up in the air, and see which your creativity grabs and runs with.

  • Pick a number at random between 1 and 17, write a short story right now using the corresponding writing prompt below!
  • Naturally you could also just use the entire list as a flood of ideas to see which your imagination runs with.
  • Why not try allocating one to each day of a week that you’re aiming for writing output to be consistent?

Why use writing prompts?

It all comes back to inspiration, and practice.

Like any skill, practice makes perfect – and if you enjoy the process, you’re much more likely to put the time in and keep getting better!

And write often.

However you (or your students) find your inspiration to want to write a story, do that.

And through this, the writing ability (and all the good things that come along with it) will just be a matter of time.

11. Can Someone Be a Superhero to Some People and a Supervillain to Others?

In real life, whether someone is seen as a hero or a villain is often a matter of perspective. Many conquerors remain highly regarded even though they did terrible things.

As a result, it is worth asking whether someone can be a superhero to some people and a supervillain to others, particularly in works that care about politics.

28. Design a Magic-Based Superhero.

The line between magic and science was thin in pre-modern times. To name an example, Discover reminds us that Sir Issac Newton was also an alchemist. Despite this, a magic-based superhero naturally gravitates towards a different set of narratives than his science-based counterpart.

29. Design a Paragon-Type Superhero

Paragons are superheroes who serve as living examples for everyone else in their setting. Whether they live up to that reputation is a separate matter.

It is good to exercise your creativity from time to time.

This opens up a wide range of narrative possibilities, particularly for people who don’t mind writing less serious narratives.

50. Write About a Superhero Doing Their Taxes.

Realism doesn’t necessarily mean fun things for superheroes. Sometimes, it means dealing with the same things normal people do. Chances are good that taxes would be one of them, if only because successful superheroes seem like they would have lucrative merchandising opportunities.

Those with an in-depth understanding of the subject might even want to brainstorm what taxation would look like for those with superpowers. If nothing else, governments are happy to use tax incentives to push policies.

Frequently asked questions about comic story ideas

What's the secret sauce behind great comic book ideas.

Ah, the magic potion of comics! It's a delicate blend of imagination, art form, and the written word. Mix in characters, relatable elements, and a splash of strange noises (for good measure), and voila! Your comic story ideas brew to life!

I want to write my own comic book. Where do I start?

Well, dear future comic book writers, begin with a solid foundation. Draft your main character, think of a unique world, be it a fantasy world or a war zone, and then let your imagination run wild! Remember, even Stan Lee and Neil Gaiman started with a single comic book idea.

How do I create relatable characters like Wonder Woman or Iron Man?

Character development is key! Dive into real life for inspiration, and don't be afraid to add some family drama or traits from a young wizard. The best comic books have characters with depth, quirks, and flaws, just like us regular folks.

What if I want to make a comic strip or graphic novel instead of a full-fledged comic book?

More power to you! Comic strip stories and graphic novels are fantastic platforms for storytelling. Whether you're co-authored or flying solo, keep the visual storytelling engaging, employ creative writing, and don't forget the establishing shot for your scenes!

Can I combine genres like science fiction and fantasy in my comic series?

Absolutely! Mix and match to create new ideas. Ever wondered what Captain America would do in a fantasy world? Now's the time to find out. The sky's the limit, so don't be afraid to explore.

What's the difference between comic book story ideas and comic ideas?

A comic book story encompasses the full arc, filled with twists, turns, and bad guys. Comic ideas might be shorter, maybe for a short comic strip or a single panel. Think of the story as a full-course meal and ideas as the tasty appetizers!

I'm stuck! How do I find more inspiration for my comic book stories?

Fear not! Turn to existing comic series, read works by artists like Art Spiegelman, or indulge in a short story or two by Robert Kirkman. Join a small group of fellow comic creators, share ideas, and, most importantly, have fun!

Any advice for new readers exploring the comic world for the first time?

Welcome to the world of comics! Start with some classics (DC Comics, anyone?) and gradually explore different genres. Whether you love superhero tales, fun adventures, or complex graphic novels, there's a universe waiting for you.

How do I know when my comic is a finished product?

Great comic book making is an art, and knowing when to put down the pen is part of it. Review it, perhaps with the fresh eyes of new readers, tweak it, polish it, and when it feels right, take a bow. Your comic is ready for the world!

Any last words of wisdom for aspiring comic artists and writers?

Always keep writing, experimenting, and letting your ideas evolve. Embrace your own time and pace. Stay true to your style, be it a comic form or graphic novel, and never forget: Every strong superhero or exciting adventure begins with a simple idea.

About Paraphrase Tool

Getting your wording just right.

Paraphrasing is a natural part of the writing process as it helps you clarify your thinking and suit your words to your audience. Using a Paraphrase Tool helps structure and streamline this work, and our paraphrase tool offers 20 modes, many of them free, for accomplishing just this. The 20 modes we offer are diverse, including a summarize tool, a free grammar checker, a mode to simplify text, and a sentence shortener. There are sentence rephrasers and paraphrase rephrase tools, and we pride ourselves on having both, since our reword generator accounts for context at both the sentence and paragraph levels.

When you google paraphrase you will get a variety of results, from a free Paraphrase Tool , to an article spinner, to a general phrase tool, and it can be hard to determine which of these rephrase tools will best help you complete your work. If you simply need to get a word rephrase, that is, reword only small elements within the sentence, many tools will suffice, but there is the risk that you end up with a tool that does not consider context and produces very awkward and ungrammatical sentences. Rephrasing is very much an art, and we’ve built our paraphrase bot to produce the most correct results in 20 modes in over 100 languages, making it the best paraphrasing tool at an exceptionally low cost. So whether you need to paraphrase deutsch, paraphrase greek, or paraphrase bahasa melayu, the next time you think, I need something to paraphrase this for me, you’ll know where to turn.

From keywords to paragraphs

Generating paragraphs with unique ideas can be challenging, and too often writers get stuck at this stage of the writing process. With our paragraph tool, you can enter keywords and let our AI generate paragraphs for you, so that you can have something to work with, refine the output, and become more engaged in your writing.

A paragraph generator creates links between your ideas, such that the output is sensible, unique, and stimulating, very close to what you would expect a thoughtful human paragraph writer to produce.

Paragraph makers are nice, but what about a short story generator? Because our AI is generalized, it serves a story generator, an essay generator, a poem generator, and much more. To generate compelling stories, you should provide the story generator with useful keywords from which it can develop plot elements, including characters, setting details, and any situational information. To generate reasonably good essays, you should likewise provide the essay maker with details around argumentative positions and any other pertinent ideas.

Free Character Writing Prompts #7:  Superheroes

Here are ten free character writing prompts about superheroes! While I considered leaving this section out and letting the section "Heroes" speak for itself, I've read too many comic books and seen too many cartoons to leave out superheroes. In the beginning they were simple characters who were bent on saving the world after having visited from another planet or being a part of a government experiment. There are now hundreds (if not thousands) of superheroes from cartoons and comics and they have many different sets of back stories and personal lives. Some of them are cursed while others lead a relatively normal life like the one portrayed in the movie The Incredibles. When creating your own superhero, feel free to add your own personal touches to an enjoyable and occasionally dark genre.  Free Character Writing Prompts #8: Superheroes

1. As many reporters have reflected in stories about failed rescues and hostage negotiations gone horribly wrong, "In a world where superheroes exist, why did we have to get stuck with this one?" While his origins are unclear, it's obvious that the super strength and speed that he inherited did not enhance his brain. When he was discovered, you believed he would be the best hope your city had of stopping crime, due to his invulnerability and his hatred for bad guys. Unfortunately, he's a major screw up and tends to unintentionally help the criminals as often as he hurts them, causing property damage and innocent injuries in his wake. Where did this hero come from and why does he have such trouble with his own heroism?

2. In a world surrounded by superheroes and villains, he was a pacifist living in a small town in rural Pennsylvania. He was very religious and didn't often leave his tiny hamlet, but a work-related matter put him in Philadelphia for a conference. During an evening stroll back to his hotel, he was attacked by two crooks with weapons. When he put up his hands to defend himself, a large blast of fire and energy shot out, blowing the crooks backward at an alarming speed and causing them to die almost instantly. After news got out that he was one of the most powerful super beings on the planet, the public clamored for him to don a cape. What will he choose to do and what shape will the rest of his life take?

3. In school she had the nickname of Plain Jane and when she realized she had the ability to fly, the nickname took on multiple meanings. Despite her flying ability and learning some basic fighting techniques, she was still pretty average looking. She poured over comic books of female super heroes and found they were all buxom and clothes in tight spandex. While most women have pressure to conform to some level of beautification, she had more than most as she was on camera frequently. She held fast to her own style and her natural weight in the face of these ridiculous standards. What is an average day like for this airborne heroine?

4. As the most popular girl in school, she had a responsibility to maintain her image at all times. When a strange man approached her, telling her she was chosen to fight the evil in the world, she called the police and had him arrested for exposing himself to her even though it was far from the truth. Though she tried to ignore them, she noticed instincts she'd never had before that alerted her to danger. When a massive group of demons attacked a tour bus during a class trip, she powerfully fought them off in front of everybody. Her response to them in the aftermath was, "I'm a superhero." How does her new role fit with her popularity and how will her life change?

5. On a scuba trip to celebrate his retirement, a man was examining a coral reef when he noticed a glimmering silver ball. He waved his wife over as he touched it. A blast of light went through his body and his wife motioned to the tour guide for help. When they brought the man to the surface and took off his mask, they found that he had regressed in age to a very fit, twenty-something individual. He later realized he had super strength and an ability to move objects with his mind. He insisted he didn't mind that there was now a 50 year age difference in appearance between him and his wife, but people were beginning to ask questions. What will the man do about his living and super hero situations?

6. He knew from a young age that he had a sort of power over people. Whenever he asked someone for something that person gave it to him in a sort of trance. In a moment of adolescent frustration, he asked his dad to kill himself, which he promptly did. Since that chilling day, he has been more careful with his mind control and he has only used it for the good of his country. He has urges to use his powers for wealth and greed, but he suppresses them with all his might. How does he honor his dad and what are some ways in which he's controlled people?

7. She was so upset that her boyfriend left her for the hottest girl in school that she wished to be that girl. In a few moments, she transformed into the girl and knew that she could shape shift. She used the powers for petty pleasures in high school and college but knew there had to be a bigger purpose. She trained to be a spy for the CIA, never sharing her powers with her superiors. She had difficulty defining her own identity after having taken on so many in her missions. She even considered starting over as a child to get herself adopted. What are some ways she has used her powers and who does she feel she truly is?

8. You know the phrase "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger?" Well, for her, it's by far the truth. When she broke her leg in middle school, she noticed that it not only grew back stronger, but she was now able to jump over five feet vertically on it. Small cuts would heal back with a second skin that was practically invulnerable. Her real powers, however, came when she fell deathly ill from a tropical disease. Upon health, she had super speed, regenerative abilities and complete fearlessness. During the day she lives her secret identity as a paralegal for a criminal law firm and at night she uses those contacts to put criminal organizations behind bars. Describe a typical day and night in her life.

9. For anyone who doubted the belief that knowledge is power, this man was all the convincing they would ever need. Not only was he a sponge when it came to all types of book knowledge, but he was a master of muscle memory. This meant that he absorbed every fighting technique in a matter of minutes as if it were downloaded directly into his brain a la The Matrix. His true passion was literature, however and he spent much of his time memorizing the classics. Since rambling off long passages of Faulkner didn't impress the ladies he was a bit of a loner. He put some of his social energies outside of heroism into anonymously winning fantasy football leagues. What would a perfect day be like for this mental maestro?

10. She was a bra-burning, animal-loving activist through and through until an effort to let a laboratory experiment free turned her into a fierce and powerful warrior. While she never lost her feminist and cause-fighting spirit, she knew that her powers of protest would be best served as the source of the problems. She fought to uncover criminal aspects of big companies through a special law enforcement division that she was commissioned to head up. In addition, she became a symbol for women everywhere to be independent and to fight for a better world. What are some of the things she misses about her protesting days and why?  Did you enjoy these character writing prompts?  Buy the full book of 1,000 Character Writing Prompts on Amazon!   Done with Character Writing Prompts about Superheroes?

6 Superhero Story Ideas to Make Your Readers Into Super Fans

By: Author Paul Jenkins

Posted on October 28, 2022

Categories Creativity , Inspiration , Storytelling , Writing

Do you love superheroes? Of course, you do! Who doesn’t love a good superhero story? Not only are they exciting and suspenseful, but they also give us hope that good will always triumph over evil. This blog post will discuss six different superhero story ideas that will make your readers into super fans! We will provide a brief synopsis of each idea, as well as some tips on how to make them even more exciting. Let’s get started!

6 Superhero Story Ideas

  • The superhero origin story is perhaps the most classic of all superhero stories, and for good reason. Whether your hero is a powerful alien, a plucky teenager with extraordinary abilities, or an ordinary person who receives incredible powers in a freak accident, this story is sure to hook your readers from the beginning. To make it even more engaging, consider exploring the origins of your hero’s nemesis; after all, every great hero needs an equally great villain!
  • The hero vs. villain showdown: Another classic and beloved trope in superhero stories is the epic battle between the hero and their arch-nemesis. This can be done in many ways – perhaps your hero has finally tracked down their ruthless foe after months of searching, or maybe they have been caught off guard by a surprise attack from their enemy. Whatever the scenario, this type of story will surely keep your readers on the edge of their seats until the very end!
  • A team-up with other superheroes: Another fun idea for a superhero story is to follow multiple heroes as they come together to take down a powerful enemy or tackle a difficult problem. You could focus on how these heroes work together to form an unstoppable team, or you could delve into each character’s unique motivations and challenges as they try to collaborate with others who are very different from themselves. No matter how you decide to tell it, this type of story will leave your readers riveted and eager for more!
  • A dark twist on an iconic superpowered character: Sometimes, taking things in an unexpected direction can result in truly wonderful stories. In this type of story, you might explore how an established superhero (or villain) suddenly gains an unexpected power, or perhaps you could explore how a classic villain gains a devoted following willing to follow them on their quest for world domination. Whatever you decide to do, this type of story is sure to be full of surprises!
  • An alternate history for superheroes: Have you ever wondered what would have happened if the outcome of a pivotal point in a superhero’s life had been different? In this story, you can look at what might have happened if a classic hero had discovered their powers at a different point in their life, or perhaps you could explore what would happen if a hero’s arch-nemesis had made different moral choices at an early point in their villainous career. This type of story allows you to explore what might have been if one small detail in history had changed, and it’s sure to lead to some exciting and unexpected outcomes!
  • A superhero’s legacy: In some superhero stories, the main character does not do the majority of the fighting and crime fighting. Instead, you might tell the story of a hero’s sidekick, the inspiring words of a long-dead hero, or even a villain’s attempts to create their twisted version of a beloved superhero’s uniform and mask. As you can see, there are many creative ways to explore a superhero’s legacy and the impact they have had on the world – and this type of story can be a lot of fun to write!

What if Superheroes Were Real?

We all have that one superhero we’ve always looked up to. For me, it was Spider-Man. I was fascinated by his powers and how he used them to help people. I would daydream about what it would be like to have amazing abilities like his.

As I got older, I started to wonder what it would be like if superheroes were real. Would they use their powers for good or evil? Would the world be a better place or a worse place? These are the questions that I explore in this blog post.

Superheroes Have Always Been a Part of Our Culture

Superheroes have been a part of our culture for centuries. They can be found in mythology, literature, comics, movies, TV shows, and video games. We are drawn to their stories because they inspire us to be better people. They give us hope that there is something more out there. That we can be more than just ordinary people with ordinary lives.

The truth is, we all have the potential to be superheroes. We may not have super strength or the ability to fly, but we all have special abilities and talents. We all have the power to make a difference in the world.

Superheroes Represent the Best of Humanity

When you think about it, superheroes represent the best of humanity. They stand for justice, equality, and freedom. They fight for the weak and helpless. They protect the innocent and punish the guilty. They inspire us to be better people.

But what if superheroes were real? What would the world be like? Would it be a utopia or a dystopian nightmare? Let’s explore some of the possibilities.

Possibility #1: Superheroes would use their powers for good

One possibility is that superheroes would use their powers for good. They would fight crime and help those in need. The world would be safer because there would be fewer criminals and more heroes to protect us from them. We would look up to them as role models and try to emulate their heroic deeds in our own lives.

Possibility #2: Superheroes would use their powers for evil

Another possibility is that superheroes would use their powers for evil instead of good. They would terrorize innocent people and wreak havoc on society. The world would be a much darker place with supervillains running amok without anyone to stop them.. citizens would live in fear, not knowing when or where they will strike next. In this scenario, it’s easy to see how power could corrupt even the most well-intentioned heroes. We, humans, are imperfect beings, after all.

Possibility #3: Superheroes wouldn’t make any difference at all

A third possibility is that superhero activity wouldn’t make any difference. In this scenario, superpowers wouldn’t change anything because people are already capable of great evil or great good. No matter our abilities, we ultimately choose what kind of people we want to be. So even if superheroes were real, they wouldn’t necessarily make the world better or worse. It all depends on the choices that each individual makes.

Superheroes are fascinating because they represent wish fulfillment. We all have dreams of being able to do things that we can’t do in real life. But what if those dreams become reality? What if superpowers were suddenly thrust upon us? It’s hard to say what would happen. But one thing is certain: we would need to exercise caution and wisdom not to abuse our newfound abilities.

How To Write A Superhero Comic

Superhero comics are some of the most popular comics on the shelves today. They are packed with action, adventure, and suspense. If you’re a writer who wants to create a superhero comic, there are a few things you need to know.

Creating A Hero

The first step in creating a superhero comic is to create your hero. Your hero should be someone that readers can root for. They should be someone that readers can identify with. Think about what makes your hero special. What are their superpowers? What motivates them? Once you understand your hero well, you can start plotting your story.

Plotting Your Story

Your story should be full of action and suspense. There should be plenty of twists and turns to keep readers engaged. The stakes should be high, and the danger should be real. Remember, your goal is to write a story that will keep readers coming back for more.

Creating Action Scenes

Action scenes are one of the most important parts of any superhero comic. They should be full of excitement and adrenaline. Remember to focus on your characters and their motivations. What does your hero want? What is standing in their way? These are the questions you should ask yourself when writing action scenes.

10 Superhero Creative Writing Prompts

  • What if Superman woke up one day to find that he had lost his powers? How would he cope with a world that he can no longer protect?
  • What if Batman’s parents weren’t killed when he was a child, and he grew up to be a happy, well-adjusted billionaire? Would he still become the Dark Knight?
  • What if Wonder Woman came from a world of all men? How would she fare in our world of men and women?
  • What if Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben had survived the shooting that claimed his life? Would Peter Parker have still become Spider-Man?
  • What if the X-Men were treated as heroes instead of outcasts? How would society react to their unique abilities?
  • What if Aquaman were king of the Seven Seas? Would he be able to keep the peace between the surface world and the underwater kingdom?
  • What if Green Lantern’s ring chose him instead of him being chosen by it? How would he handle the responsibility of being a superhero?
  • What if Black Widow decided to retire from her life as an Avenger? How would she fare in normal life?
  • What if Ant-Man were to shrink to the size of an ant and get lost in the everyday world? Would he ever be able to return to his normal size?
  • What if Captain America were frozen in ice for 100 years and woke up in our modern world? How would he react to all the changes that have taken place in the intervening years?

Defining the Superhero Genre

In its most basic form, a superhero story is one in which the protagonist has abilities that exceed those of normal humans and uses them to do good. This can be done in several ways, but the most common is for the hero to use their powers to fight crime. Of course, not all stories about people with superpowers fighting crime are considered superhero stories. For example, police procedurals like “Law & Order” or “CSI” don’t typically fall into this genre. So what sets superhero stories apart?

The costume

One of the most defining aspects of superhero stories is the costume. In almost all cases, superheroes will have some alter ego they assume when they put on their costume and go out to fight crime. This separate identity allows them to maintain some semblance of a normal life while still being able to do good in the world. Think about it: would Spider-Man be as effective at fighting crime if he didn’t have his mask? Would Batman be as intimidating if he didn’t have his cape and cowl? In many ways, the costume is just as important as the superpowers.

The origin story

Another key element of superhero stories is the origin story. This is the story of how the hero got their powers and why they decided to use them for good. Origin stories are often tragic, with the hero acquiring their powers through terrible accidents or losses. This tragedy gives them the motivation to use their powers to help others and make sure that no one else has to go through what they went through.

How to Pick the Perfect Superhero Name for Your Character

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but would Captain America be as iconic if his alter ego was Steve Rogers? Probably not. Much thought goes into choosing a superhero name, as it is often the first impression readers have of the character. The following are some factors to consider when naming your superhero.

Origin Story

Every superhero has an origin story, and that story should play a role in choosing the character’s name. Is your superhero an alien? Then a human name might not make sense. Is your superhero trying to distance themselves from their human identity? Then a name that references their human life might not be the best option. Consider what will make the most sense for your character and go from there.

Abilities and Powers

Superheroes get their names for all sorts of reasons, but one of the most common is because of their abilities or powers. For example, characters who can manipulate fire might be named “Pyro” or “Inferno.” Other examples include “The Flash,” “Mr. Fantastic,” and “Batman.” If your character’s abilities or powers hold special significance, their name should reflect that.

Physical Appearance

Another common reason superheroes are named after their physical appearance is because it makes them more visually distinct and recognizable. After all, if two people wear capes and tights, you will have a hard time telling them apart if they both have generic names like “Bob” or “Jane.” Physical features to consider include hair color (“Storm”), skin color (“Falcon”), and build (“Hulk”).

What makes a good superhero story?

Rise of the hero.

A good superhero story always has a strong beginning, which typically includes the hero’s origin story. The hero’s journey usually starts with them leading a normal life until they suddenly acquire their powers (or in some cases, they are born with them). This event is usually followed by tragedy, where the hero loses someone close to them. This sets the tone for the rest of the story and motivates the hero to use their powers for good.

The Call to Action

After the hero’s origin story, there is usually a call to action. This is when the hero is faced with a problem that is too big for them to solve on their own. To save the day, they must put their powers to use and defeat the villain. In some stories, the call to action comes from a sidekick or mentor who helps guide the hero’s journey.

The Battle of Good vs. Evil

This is perhaps the most essential element of any superhero story. The fight between good and evil drives the plot forward and creates suspense for readers (or viewers). Will good triumph over evil? Or will evil prevail? This element keeps readers engaged and rooting for the hero until the end.
