My Failed Superhero Idea

If I were pitching a superhero idea to Marvel, I would create a superhero character called The Human Lie Detector.

His superpower would be the ability to see through anyone’s lies at any time.

Of course, I would need to be faithful to the comic book genre by giving my superhero at least one weaknesses. So I would make his B.S. detection skills only useful when he’s scrutinizing people of the opposite group or team to which he belongs.

His tagline would be “I can see through all the lies as long as they aren’t coming from the guys on my side.”

My only problem is that I would need to figure out a way to show the movie producers how my character differs from just watching the average American citizen during election season. This, of course, would be a formidable challenge.
