Superhero Powers

Every superhero has their superhero powers, those superb skills that are the source of their talents and abilities. Just as superheroes have their amazing skills, so too do we. What skills or talents do you have that you can perform better than most people?

For the purpose of this game, let’s define talents as “seemingly complicated tasks that are performed with the appearance of ease.” What talents do you have? What can you do that is complicated, but which you make look easy?

What skills do you have? For the purpose of this game, let’s define skills as “tasks you can utilize that can generate income.”

What superhero talents and skills do you have?

Make a list of your talents and skills.

Consider how your talents and skills can be used in service of an arts entrepreneurship vision. What can you do with them? How can you use your talents and skills? Who can you serve (what customers or audience) with your superhero powers?

By identifying one’s “superhero” skills, students learn what assets they have as creatives and in what ways they can use them to provide income or create an entrepreneurial endeavor.


If you would like to use these games in your own classroom, please do! If you do, let me know how how it goes and if you have suggestions for modifying a game.
