    Fighting Global Warming


    For my final assignment, I chose to focus on the real world villain of global warming. My character, Weather Woman, has made an appearance for several other eco-friendly assignments so I thought I would end with a myriad of global warming information and PSAs.

    Trouble Strikes in Fredericksburg


    For the crisis ideas for our class to solve I decided to go for simpler everyday crisis to superhero city destruction level mission. I also included a villain mission since not all of the classes characters are necessarily a hero.
