Superhero Poetry Ideas
Posted by watseducation
This will prove to be the single most niche blog post ever written.
But I have never been one to let that kind of thing stop me!
A shout out to the #geekteachsquad came out last night from:

A range of suggestions were made.
- Adverb poems – starting each line with either the same or different adverbs
- Simile poems
- Tele-Stitch from @redgierob

I had never heard of that one – but gives a great opportunity for creative and challenging sentence/phrase writing.
Personally I went for Superhero Limericks:
My ideas (of which I am rather pleased as they were written very quickly) are here:
The once was a Dr called Bruce,
Got zapped by Gamma “What the deuce?!?”
His muscles did swell,
He screamed ‘What the hell!?’
What’s worse he’s the colour of spruce!
There once was a Norse God called Thor,
He fought, what a terrible bore,
He could control lightning,
Which Loki found frightening,
Though his hammer he feared even more.
Iron Man/Tony Stark
There once was a rich bloke named Stark,
Who’d build weapons up for a lark,
His suits were all iron,
He could even fly ’em,
That eccentric rich fella Stark.
There once was a man named Wolverine,
He wore leather jacket and jean,
From his hands came sharp knives,
He had lived many lives,
James Howlett, the great Wolverine.
There once was a man called Kal-El,
He was from Krypton and Earth as well,
He was fast as a bullet,
A Freight Train? Could pull it!
Metropolis was where he did dwell.
What Superhero inspired poetry ideas have you or could you try with your class?
