Cap needed a little extra will power this week with the help of Green Lantern! He had an emergency appendectomy last week and is already back to work plugging away, even though he is not at his usual energy level. He is certainly one of my heroes! He has never gone to the ER before, let alone have surgery, but he was so brave through the whole process. He stayed calm and kept moving forward. Even now, after being told he has to wait to work out for a couple more weeks, he is trying to stay positive. Waiting to work out is a sign of true will power for him!
Green Lantern makes the perfect role model in difficult situations: “in brightest day” and “in darkest night”! The message of using will power and imagination to overcome obstacles is one that everyone can relate to. Don’t give up and you will succeed! That is a message Cap definitely needed to here as he went back to work overwhelmed, behind, and still under the weather. Plus, Green Lantern is one of his favorite comic book heroes.
He wouldn’t let me take pictures of him in the hospital, but, if he did, you’d see him reading comics in his hospital bed.
“Big G Cereal Hero” is all about finding the confidence of a Super Hero within yourself. We love DC Comic books because of the positive messages they share with readers. Whether you are a kid or just a kid at heart, there is always something to take away from the pages of a comic book. Right now, Big G Cereals is offering four exclusive issues of DC comics featuring the Justice League- which means Wonder Woman makes an appearance! These issues are available now through April and can be found in Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Honey Nut Cheerios, Trix, Cookie Crisp, and Reese’s Puffs (our favorite). There is even a special 5th issue available at Target in a Cheerios box. Head on over here to check them all out!
So far, we have 3 of the 5 comic books – which means I need to find the other 2! I mean, why wouldn’t I want to collect them all?! They have been so fun to read. I especially love seeing a girl kick butt on the pages. Don’t forget to check them all out here!
