The Superhero Diaries 4.6: Corporate Support

The Elite Force of Britain: a group of superheroes who joined together to eradicate problem after problem. Recently, the team appear to have disappeared from the face of the planet – from the Universe, in fact! The despicable supervillain organisation Supervillains United have noticed this and have taken matters into their own hands with one goal in mind: world domination. People everywhere are now starting to demand the superheroes’ return following an open letter sent to the EFB by a child named Emily last week. Here are some of the letters from companies willing to share their concerns:

Dear Emily,
We too anxiously await the return of the superheroes.
We have found that superheroes aren’t necessarily people who possess remarkable abilities, but rather people who use whatever abilities they have, great or small, for the good of all.
Normal, everyday people can be, and are, superheroes. Although with the onslaught of the current super-powered supervillains we ordinary people are somewhat powerless to stop them, we do have one thing which will, in the end, defeat them.
That one thing is HOPE.
We join you in the hope that our superheroes return very soon.
Kind Regards,
Scott Urban (aged 45) and the rest of the UrbanArtiz team.

Dear Superheroes,
As a company that has been on the receiving end of despicable and frustrating antics from a variety of supervillains and the dastardly Supervillains United supergroup, we add our voice to the growing number of frustrated citizens waiting for the urgent return of our missing superheroes.
We wait to see you in our skies, on our roads, in our waters, and on our televisions (properly) once again.

Dear Emily and Tiddle’s,
We were moved by your open letter that had been so callously discarded last week, we had to write.
Like you, we need our superheroes to return, and like you we want them back as soon as possible.
We at Spark’s Electrical Goods have had a long association with the Elite Force of Britain, and are waiting to hear of their return.
Thank you,
Mr Sparks

My Dear EFB,
We at Hemingway’s Quality Tailors and Cleaners are proud to have been serving you, our most excellent superheroes since you formed as a team all those years ago. We hope you are well, and upon your return will be delighted to share with you our latest special offers on repairs and costume amendments, should you require them – as always, discretion is assured.
Please return soon (we are currently working a three day week and have had to lay off two staff, so your absence is definitely being felt here).
See you VERY soon,
Charles T. Hemingway and Sons

Dear Elite Force of Britain,
We at the Pyramid have been rescued many times by your members, either individually, or in a group, and really appreciate all of the help you have given us.
Our door security will be the first to admit that they are no match for some of the supervillain clientele who call in here every now and then, so we look forward to your return.
When you do, please call in and we will extend Happy Hour to Happy Saturday in your honour.
Please return soon.
The Management and Staff at The Pyramid

Oops. October Approaches.

The floodgates are startin’ to open
And nonsense is startin’ a-pokin’
October is nigh
Oh me! Oh my!
As All Hallows’ month is approachin’!

Oh me! Oh my! I’ve started early this year. In five days I shall be handing the reigns of the blog over to my Inner Beast who, it is planned, will fill this place full of Hallowe’en madness and utter nonsense. The Halloween theme will filter through most of my regular features, The Slightly Spooky Totally Silly Limericks will return once again, I’m also taking part in Inktober, which will be fun, and I am preparing for a Hallowe’en special to ‘beat all specials’ this year. Well, it’s a different kind of Hallowe’en post (which was, originally, going to be a weekly series to replace my Letters to the Universe series, and it is also the reason why I’m having to spend less time actually in Blogland itself… and as it has become such a monumental task, I think a one-off would be the better option for now. That said, it does leave the gates (not the floodgates, just the normal ones!) open for the weekly Letters to the Universe to return, as soon as we find out where those missing superheroes are!)

So that’s the plan.

Plans change, but that’s the plan for October for now. And yes, I shall be replying to comments and visiting again soon. I seem to always say that… but I get there in the end.

In the meantime… Feel Good! Enjoy the final few days of September. Already! I can’t believe it!!!
