The superhero draft
(A guide for the perplexed: Many people are arriving from Brian Leiter's site wondering what the superhero draft is. Various bloggers started using the UGO Hero Generator to construct a superhero avatar with Flash. Examples: Super Majikthise, and many others. I started the super hero draft to encourage other bloggers to join in the fun.Visitors might also be interested some of the more serious philosophically-related material.)
The superhero-avatar-meme is gathering force. Not concidentally, there has never been a greater need for an elite crime fighting force to battle the forces of Evil. So, in the general spirit of frivolity and public-spiritedness, I propose a superhero draft.
The following bloggers are prime super-hero material who may need only our encouragement to self-actualize:
The crew at Lawyers, Guns, and Money
The boys at Needlenose
Brian Weatherson (appropriately, author of a new paper entitled Morality Fiction and Possibility)
The wise and pugnacious Brian Leiter
Dynamic duo Jessica Wilson and Benj Hellie
The superherosapient John and Belle
And last, but not least...Digby! Digby!
