Ellis thought some more.
‘What do you remember about being kidnapped? Where were you? What were you doing? How did it happen?’ This was a lot of questions and Ellis waited for Falcon Boy to reply. Ellis felt sure that she could hear him thinking.
‘We were both at home as usual,’ said Falcon Boy. ‘Even superheroes have quiet days, and so I had the laptop on my lap and was busy checking my inbox for any new messages from World Savers Wanted™.’
World Savers Wanted™ can be found at http://www.worldsaverswanted.hero and is a listed company created by a twelve-year-old boy called Mulvey Cavell, who saw a gap in the market for matching superheroes looking for things to do with things that needed doing by superheroes.
Mulvey realised that for every superhero being summoned by an enormous searchlight whenever they were needed, there would be many other equally-deserving superheroes that didn’t have such a high profile and therefore probably needed a helping hand when it came to finding suitable things to do.
Mulvey also understood that not all superheroes wanted to try and save the world. Some were just happy doing things like opening supermarkets, posing for photographs or putting on action displays at garden fetes.
Working from his bedroom, Mulvey built the website and devised the marketing campaign. Things were slow to begin with but once the mass exodus from SuperHeroVerse™ started, World Savers Wanted™ began to get very busy – so busy, in fact, that Mulvey Cavell became a multi-millionaire at thirteen and retired from public life.
