This Kid Just Created The Most Bad Ass Superhero Of All Time

#JanetIsComing

Posted on

When Amanda Mancino sent her 10-year-old daughter, Luca, off to art camp, she had no idea Luca would end up creating a superhero that would take the internet by storm.

My child went to art day-camp today. One project was to make a new superhero. This is what my child made.

Janet, Luca's superhero creation, cuts people with giant scissors and is, "a hero only to herself." (Same girl, same.) After tweeting out a picture of Luca's drawing, Mancino received a swarm of positive feedback from illustrators who created their own version of Janet.

While others exclaimed that Janet was their new hero.

Mancino told the Huffington Post that Luca was inspired to create Janet after watching a talk with Stephen King where she fell in love with the idea that "a character with a regular name could be something amazing."

How long until Netflix picks up Janet to be their next original series?

Keep on drawing Luca! Thank you for blessing us with the hero we all wanted but certainly did not deserve.
