Scottish Superheroine Seeks Sidekick On Gumtree

Are you a motivated individual? Do you think that one human being can make a difference in this world? Are you prepared to stand up and be that person? Are you Scottish? Then maybe this might be the opportunity you've been looking for.

This listing was posted to Gumtree, a more popular UK alternative to Craiglist, earlier this week.

Edinburgh Woman…. currently the only Scottish Superheroine is looking to take on a talented, adventerous, reliable sidekick whom possesses extraordinary or superhuman power's.

The job itself does not pay and warrant's long hours policing criminal activity whilst the rest of the world sleep's and preventing Supervillians from bringing about the end of life as we know it.

Essentially you should have a background in crime fighting, posses the ability to fly/become invisible, have enhanced senses and be trained in martial arts. You should have a strong moral code, including a willness to risk one's own safety in the service of good without an expectation of reward.

You must also have/be willing to lead a double life with a secret identity to protect yourself, your family and friend's from arch enemies and it is of the utmost importance that you never allow this identity to be compromised.

Your own identity concealling costume would be advantageous, and should preferably match that of Edinburgh Woman's sparkley pink hotpant's and mask, but one can be provided for you should you require.

If you are interested in applying for this position please upload a covering letter and CV detailing your experience and why you are applying for this position along with a full description of your strength's and abilitie's.

Due to the high volume of demand expected for this position and her current workload Edinburgh Woman will not be able to respond to all applicant's but would like to thank you all for your dedication to making this world a safer place.

Anyone fancy applying? The world has seen a few Scottish superheroes in its time. But they mostly seem to wear kilts. Anyone fancy applying a Buckfast Boy? Whaabout the Batman Of Monaive?

Mark Millar is talking about writing and directing a Scottish superhero film this summer. Maybe he should get in touch.
