and a BACK STORY!

Project Phase 1

Choose a famous person in history (for our purposes you may choose anyone of historical significance and you may even choose a "bad guy"
conduct preliminary research, read about the person and their times - understanding their place in history and the times in which they lived

Write the back story
Be sure to include a basic biographical outline (it is important that you understand there is "real" history and the mythology you are trying to create and you must blend those two - assume you are telling the "true" story
include what happened to give your hero their special powers (this is where your research comes in - you need to stay in the time period of your historical figure ie George Washington can not get his powers from an atomic bomb but Ben Franklin could get his from a lightning strike)
you must include three significant historical events with dates that show off your selections super powers.

Good Luck
