1) Secret IDs are more useful than you know. If they don't know who you are, no one can sue you. GREAT!
2) Always make TWO costumes, each one wildly different from the other. This helps with tip number 3.
3) Collateral Damage. This is bad and we all try to avoid it. But we don't always check for that pesky family in the car your throwing at the latest Dr Tyche giant robot.
In a case like this, remember rules 1 and 2. You can always change outfits and name so you save the day tomorrow as the newest hero, Captain Amazing!
~~This also helps with those pesky paternity suits, lawsuits from the Lex Luther types you beat the crap out of (just because you could), and it just might fool Amerikatt after you spread all that catnip around in cat alley when you were looking for info on Scorpion.
any other helpful hints for the new hero?
