Librarian X With great power comes great bibliography.

Librarian superheroes

Wow, I started a meme!

A committee at work was writing a sample letter to faculty, and we signed it "Librarian X."  Naturally, some of us started speculating that Librarian X must be a superhero, and at the end of the day I whipped up a picture of him on Heromachine to send out.

Here he is, fighting information illiteracy wherever it may occur: Librarian X!

Naturally, my colleague protested that he's male; fair enough, given the demographics of our profession.  I was instructed to make a female version (Librarian XX, to go with this Librarian XY).  I haven't gotten around to it yet.  Maybe they're a duo?

The other members of the Library League that I know of:

Librarian By Day

My Secret Identity

Alter Ego (I like his steampunky edge)

Book Girl

W!cKed (Intimidating!)

Drop a comment if you want me to link you here.  Ex Libris and Excelsior!

Edit: Created a Flickr pool!  More librarian heroes there!
