    Costumed Superhero in desperate need of a sidekick. Responsibilities include but are not limited to: light and sometimes comedic fighting, watching my back, commanding use of puns and one liner jokes, hero worship, undying loyalty, quickly being able to "Take the wheel" during a high speed pursuit, and getting coffee from Starbucks at my whim. Able to work at nights is mandatory. Must be able and willing to learn how and when to use numerous gadgets as the situation may dictate (i.e. using shark repellent would be far more useful while we are SCUBA diving and less useful when we are hang gliding, I know this is confusing, but we will cover all of that during orientation). Theme must be able to relate to mine. I am The Solenodon (a small venomous mammal) as I had suffered a horrific solenodon accident years ago during a radioactive experiment, if you are from the area, you have almost certainly heard of me. Mysterious past preferred. Unfortunately funding is short and medical and dental cannot yet be provided, however small wages will be paid which makes this an excellent choice for a part time job. I look forward to hearing from all potential candidates. Any questions you can call or text my Solenodon Phone 1-SAVE-THE-DAY (72 EIGHT -3 EIGHT 4-3 THREE 29) or email me.

    Doesn't mention if I need a cover letter or not?

    Not for me, but if he's looking for a good supervillain to battle ...

    I think my favorite part of the listing is, "Compensation: Depending on Experience." So, if I'm a superhero looking to wind down my days until retirement in a more low-key role, would I be paid better than a young up-and-comer looking to make a name for himself? Or would that experience be held against me because the company can't afford another high-salaried crime fighter?

    Either way, Sara Ganim could totally get this job.

    Somebody has to take "Horrific Solenodon Accident" for their fantasy football team name.

    Does the sidekick also have to base his/her identity on a venomous or poisonous mammal?
    The slow loris, the maned rat, the platypus?
