For this particular challenge from gh7, teams had to come up with superhero identities for each of their team members (given the Sidekick type they had drawn at the time of registration) and a short origin story for each of them.

For an added bonus, they could come up with the name of each team member’s nefarious, evil-doing arch-nemesis.
