Not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes they carry scissors. That’s the case with Janet: a hero only to herself. The green and mildly terrifying (in the very best way) hero was created by Luca for a “make a new superhero” brief at art day camp. Luca’s mom, Amanda Mancino, shared the incredible drawing, and I have to say, I’m ready for The CW to work with them to make a series all about Janet.

And that twig? Luca said it’s a twig Janet smacks down jerks with. What I would give to have a jerk-smacking twig!

Luca, you are the coolest.
Twitter lost their minds over the drawing for obvious reasons and responded with art of Janet and and even some quick cosplay. Hey, sometimes we need a green-skinned, scissor-wielding hero to unite us and remind us the internet can be a weird and wonderful place. Some highlights, starting with a piece by Jade Bacalso.
Mike Smith boarded the Janet costume train in a hot minute, but I have a hunch this won’t be the last Janet cosplay we see.

I need this Janet story by Anna Lore yesterday.
Finally, Francis Kneebone’s Janet is here to haunt your dreams.
This post made my day – I always draw with my kids – they will totally love the original better tomorrow morning as they should. pic.twitter.com/PqbZtONjBO
