INSPIRATION: THE YOUNG GUARDIANS’ ORIGIN

In the sample from The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell I posted earlier today, you could see them being struck by an otherworldly being outside of a movie theatre.  The following image is the location in which this event occurs in the book.  The reason why I chose this place to be the sight in which the Young Guardians acquired their powers was because it is a place of great sentimental significance to me and my best friends.  Every year on my birthday, we would gather at this movie theatre and see the latest superhero film.  Between middle school and high school, we would discuss all of the possibilities of what our lives would be like if we became superheroes.  By my junior year in high school after we viewed yet another superhero film on my birthday, I imagined us experiencing something that would transform us into the heroes we dreamed to be as we walked out of the theatre.  That was when the idea for my series first began.
