This is sort of a rehash of an earlier journal I did about how I would've done my own version of Shezow.
So basically, after seeing that show about a year ago, it left me wanting to do my own cross dressing crime fighter, and at the same time, it left me scrambling to try to make my character different from Obie Scott Wade's cult classic.
For starters, there won't be any puns unless absolutely needed.
I would make the main character more of a teenager instead of being 12. I don't have a personality for him yet, but at some point I want him to accept the responsibilities that come with being a spirit of justice. Not sure if I want him to have superpowers, or to just be a vigilante like Batman. The whole cross dressing element would only happen after previous attempts to create a fearsome persona are laughed at by even the hardest of criminals. I don't have a "hero name" yet, but the only alter ego name I could come up with is Kirby Lee Martinez.
I would like him to have a girlfriend, but I want her to fight alongside him instead of being a damsel in distress. The only name I have for her at the moment is Marie St. Louis and I imagine her to be half French, half Filipino. Personality hasn't been thought of yet.
I would like to have a rogues gallery, but one villainess would be modeled after Tara from Shezow, but more violent, ruthless and manipulative. Kaltorr is a name my late father made up one day when I played Spore several years ago. Might use it for my Tara, or maybe something else.
One story idea I have would be for the main character to be in a situation where he'd have to choose rescuing his dad, or his sister, and not be able to save both.
As for the costume, it would probably be a wig, domino mask, cape, top, skirt, utility belt, cheerleading briefs, gloves and boots.
Basically this is just me scribbling ideas as I go. Maybe I'll boil everything down when I have a chance.
