IQ: Captain, you're obviously a great American hero, what brings you to Canada's capital?
Captain: Well Ian, first off, I'd like to say it's a great pleasure to be here. Ottawa is a beautiful city and the folks here are very friendly. I came to Canada as part of an exchange program to promote Super Hero parties.
IQ: Super Hero parties sound like a lot of fun. Is anyone invited to these parties or do I need "Top Security" clearance?
Captain: No Ian, anyone can host these parties right in their own homes. They're usually done when a young boy or girl celebrates a birthday party.
IQ: That does seem like an ideal setting. So all ages can attend then?
Captain: Truth be told, kids under 3 might have a little difficulty following everything going on. These parties include loads of activities. But we believe in equal fun for all, so we don't worry too much about age.
IQ: What can one expect to do at these Super Hero parties?
Captain: Alright, let me take you through a typical party. When I arrive on the scene, I'm ready to party with the kids. High fives all around. Recruitment then takes place. All the kids want to be Super Heroes, so I take them through basic training (fun stretches & Super Hero exercises). Of course, physical training is only the beginning.
Next up, I train their minds. this is done through guessing games and hero trivia. You'd be amazed at how much kids know about Super Heroes! Afterwards, it's time to introduce my sidekick. He's a soft, cute, plushy, mini version of me. My sidekick is instrumental in 3 fun-filled games we play: "Catch that Super Hero", "Hot Potato Super Hero", and "Dunk that Super Hero". It's an absolute blast.
When it's time for my sidekick to take a break, we'll play "Mr. Freeze Dance" and "Super Hero Piggy Backs". If there's time, we might even play a little Super Tag. If my colleague, the Starfighter, is performing at the party, there's even a lightsaber training session!
IQ: Wow, I'm exhausted already. There's certainly a lot going at these Super Hero parties. Let me ask you though, does the birthday child get anything special? It is his or her special day, after all.
Captain: Of course, they do! When it's all done, the birthday child gets a special Super Hero Birthday certificate. It's the official proof that they graduated from Super Hero Academy! It's a great school. I graduated with honours. Class of '41.
Of course, being a Super Hero means always being helpful. If mom or dad want a little help serving the birthday cake and singing, I'm always up to the challenge.
IQ: Let's go back a bit. Earlier, you made mention of your colleague, the Starfighter. Do any of your Hero friends help you out with these parties?
Captain: When you call BirthdayPartyMagic.ca for a Super Hero party, you have a choice of several heroes. There's myself, of course, the Captain. There's also my Spider friend, and a couple of Bats (both classic and movie versions). And as I've mentioned, there is the Starfighter from a galaxy far, far away. Of course, as time goes by, we'll be recruiting more heroes to the roster.
IQ: So many heroes to choose from.
Captain: Excuse me Ian, I've just received a call on my communicator. Duty calls. I have to go perform a Super Hero party now.
IQ: Thanks for joining me Captain. Have fun!
