Kicking Ass and Taking Names

Updated: Sep 13, 2019

Why should the super heroes get all the glory?

Coming out from the shadows, Sidekicks! puts the spotlight on their spandexed counterpoints who buttress them with awesome moves, clever insights, technology know-how, and often a sense of humor.

I personally find them more relatable. Like, if I had a flying chance in Hell, I’d be the cheeky sidekick…since I don’t have any special powers (e.g., Superman and his ilk) or an infinite supply of cash to buy cool toys (e.g, Batman, Iron Man, et. al.). However, I can manage a costume.
