Every boy and girl and maybe a few adults secretly (or not), wants to be a Super Hero/Heroine.  The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company lets everyone fulfill their wish.  At the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company, every Super Hero or Super Heroine will be able to have their cape tested before purchasing by stepping on a platform where a high powered fan tests the “effectiveness” of their cape. Talk About Fun! Don’t wait for Halloween and head to this treasure trove of fun.

That’s not all, Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company has an alter ego just like Clark Kent. The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company is also a non-profit, 826 NYC and was  founded by author Dave Eggers (yes, that Dave Eggars author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius), a program that is dedicated to assisting kids 6-18 with their writing and homework.

Super Hero  Capes for both adults and kids are not all they sell, you can also purchase gloves, leotards, x-ray glasses, t-shirts and even onesies for the littlest superhero. What I loved about the store locale is that 826 NYC has a secret “door” in which you open to get to the  area where kids are tutored and where the after school program is run. How cool is that!
