Superhero

Writing Prompt: On a piece of paper, write a story about an adventure a superhero goes on to help someone.

Writing prompts may instruct you to write about fiction or nonfiction. If the prompt does not specify, feel free to make up a story or draw from personal experience. In this prompt, please write about a made up story.


Before you begin writing, you’ll need to brainstorm ideas for your story. Think: What are your superhero’s powers? What will be his/her adventure? Who will she help? How will she help the person? There are many different answers to each of these questions, so your story should be unique.


Take a look at the two sample answers provided in response to the given writing prompt. Sample answer number one is a story about a superhero named Zack who can shape shift into anything he wants. There is a little girl stuck in a basement, and Zack uses his superpowers to get to her.


In sample answer number two, the story is about super lady who has the power to control things with her mind. When a family drives the car off a bridge into a river, super lady uses her powers to save them.

Sample Answer #1

One day, Zack, a superhero, was flying through the forest as a bird after a big storm. He wanted to make sure no one was stuck out here. After a few minutes of flying, he spotted a house with trees fallen all around it. He carefully landed outside of the house and shape shifted back into his human form. Then, he heard a faint cry. He followed the noise to a window that looked into the basement. He looked in the window and saw a small girl crying in the corner. The window was mostly covered by trees. Zack looked for the door but it was smashed in by trees, and he wasn’t strong enough to move them. He was walking around the house when something caught his eye. It was a hole leading into the house small enough for a mouse. Zack quickly shape shifted into a tiny mouse and crawled through the hole. Once he was inside, he shape shifted back into his human form and helped the little girl get upstairs and safely out of the house.

Sample Answer #2

Elsa, an ordinary girl to most, is secretly a superhero. She is known as super lady. She has the superpower to control things with her mind. She even has a special suit she wears when she is saving people. One day, she was going on a walk through the park when she came to a bridge. She walked down the side while cars drive by her. Suddenly, a car tire blew and the car swerved causing another car to also swerve. Unfortunately, the car drove right into the side of the bridge and crashed right through it. Super lady watched as the car fell over the side of the bridge toward the river below. After a second, a loud splash sounded as the car hit the water. Super lady noticed a family stuck inside the car panicking inside. Using her mind control powers, super lady brought the car out of the water and safely back onto the road of the bridge. Once the car was back on the road, she ran to it to make sure the family inside was safe. Thankfully, they were all okay, and they thanked super lady for saving them all.
