Today’s a double feature since I missed Monday; this means you get two super heroes in a row! First one is Sulfury, yet another character that came to be because of a school project. It’s funny how this guy came to be because of a joke I made in science class, but we’ll get into that later. Without further ado, I give you Sulfury.
We’re back in Creative Writing class for this one (2012). This time the assignment was to create a super hero story. At the same time I was taking chemistry and was learning about acids. My teacher asked me “If the sulfuric acid can turn the paper from white to brown, what do you think it could do to you?” I replied and I quote: “Turn me from brown to white?” And that’s how I came up with the design.
Just an ordinary day in chemistry class where some of the students thought it would be funny to swap nerdy Sheldon’s Gatorade with sulfuric acid of the same color. One sip of the beverage corrupted Sheldon’s internal organs and mutated his DNA. his once caramel skin changed into a ghostly pale white and his hair became a hulk-like green. Completely enraged, he threw balls of energy across the room and fled home. Alone in his room, he crafted a costume and decided to put his new powers to good use. To activate his powers he needs to either eat pieces of sulfur (don’t try this you will die) or drink more sulfuric acid. Recently, more and more super villains with similar chemical based abilities began to emerge. In order to stop them Sheldon took on the new persona of Sulfury to protect his city and fight evil.
