Create your own superhero at the Heard Museum

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - A new exhibit opened on Saturday at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, and it allows kids to be interactive and create their own superhero.

“There's a bunch of activities for kids," said artist Jay Odjick. "You can cut a cape so you can make your own superhero."

The new exhibit is called "Superheroes, Art, Action, Adventure."

Those possibly wanting to make a career as a comic book artist can talk to Odjick, who created Kagagi.

“I started drawing when I was really young, probably when I was five years old, and I actually got my first rejection letter from Marvel comics when I was 10 years old, so this is something I wanted to do my entire life,” Odjick said.

According to Odjick, rejection letters are just part of the game.

“When I was coming up in comics, I was learning about my heroes. Friends of mine got, like, 300 rejection letters before making it," he said. "But if you stick with it, you can do anything you want in this field."

The Heard Museum also gave a chance for the kids to show off their created superheroes with a costume contest.
