Hubby’s Corner: What superhero would you be?

When most people stop and think about superheroes, most would tend to reference the more traditional forms of superheroes seen in this picture. Superman; Batman; Flash Gordon; the possibilities are endless.

A superhero is typically someone who has obtained some form of super power through some spectacular event in his life. But it can also be simply someone who is a costumed person of mystery fighting for a personal cause.

How many times have you ever caught yourself daydreaming – If I were a superhero, who would I be? I think everybody has some favorite superhero or super power they wish they had at one point in their lives. So as I sit here pondering my superhero options, I think I finally have the answer!

I have always thought that the Invisible Man would be super cool. The fun I’d have just messing with people and the sights I’d see. Check out the pic of me waiting patiently in the women’s locker room. Can you see me???

Or maybe Batman, with his bat-belt gadgets. He usually has everything on that belt for every occasion. He was a real boy scout prepared for anything.

Then I quickly switched to Spiderman with his wall climbing and web swinging and quick draw web shooting but I was concerned about the costume selection!??  NAH!

Then it came to me!!!


Over the years I’ve occasionally been referred to (by Natalie’s friends) as Nat’s Man.

That’s right this looks like a job for ….dunt-da-da-dahhhh!!!!     

I can just imagine NATSMAN swooping in to aid my damsel in distress; saving her from the hands of evil doers. I picture her looking deeply into NATSMAN’s eyes with awe and amazement of my greatness as I whisk her away to safety while stealing a hot kiss!

But alas, I chuckle to myself …who am I kidding?! I have tears running down my cheeks as I sit here tossing around the endless NATSMAN costume possibilities. I’d like to think that NATSMAN would have a manly black unitard; hot-rod red accent colors with built-in body shaping amour – superhero Spanks you might say? But I’m not fooling anybody because if I was truly NATSMAN, I’d be dawned in a hot pink, glitter-covered unitard with perhaps a diamond studded g-knit with large pink stones where my balls used to reside.

My utility belt would be stocked with Nat’s cash, ID and lipstick (because none of her outfits have pockets). On the other side of the belt – a never-ending thermo cup of Butter Pecan Latte, foot cream and purple nail files. The best utility belt option would be my retractable car/house key holder – pink of course – so all doors before my damsel would be opened prior to her royal arrival. What I could not fit into my utility belt, I could store in my quick-as-a-flash hot pink, rhinestone covered murse (Portmanteau = Man + Purse).

On my right hand, I’d sport a feathered glove for giving great back tickles while she watches TV. And my left sleeve would contain magician style flowers that I could whip out at a moment’s notice. And as much as I would love to be a masked superhero…at this point I suspect my only head gear would be a sparkling tiara.

Regardless of the silly costume ideas and the elaborate images, I can’t help but be thankful for the day I met Natalie and every day since. You might say meeting her was the spectacular event in my life…where I obtained my super power and became forever known as dunt-da-da-dahhhh!!!!  

PS: NATSMAN is not the only superhero fantasy in the household!!!!


Now that I told you my dirty little secret…what superhero would you be? Who is the real-life superhero in your life? Come on…share the wealth…

Be sure to check out more blog fabulousness:



  1. That was hilarious! But, I have to tell you: manly and unitard in the same sentence…not possible without laughter! Because a unitard cannot be manly. That would be like a blind architect or a good looking pair of clogs. Unicorns are more likely. I agree with Natalie. Wonder Woman is who I’d pick. I actually have a great costume in storage for a Halloween party I never went to. Someday. And, Natalie: Thanks for the blog love. You’re the sweetest. 🙂

  2. If you go this route, Natsman deserves some serious supernookie from the wife! LOL. If we wives had our husbands design our superhero costumes, I shudder to think how little fabric there would be. That said, I would currently like the superpower of controlling machines. Then I could quickly turn off my sons’ cell phones when they weren’t listening or do laundry without pushing all of those programming buttons. I’m a practical gal.

  3. Hubby, you know I support you 100% in your NATSMAN quest! More powerful than a speeding pair or Mundies…Able to leap tall Bedazzling Babes in a single bound… He’s Natsman!!!

    Thank you for the link and the laughter this morning. 🙂

  4. Hilarious, Scott! We all know you’re Nat’s superhero and I can see why you designed the costume in pink glitter. Very important to be able to take care of her every need, but maybe change the color to black with pink accessories-just to preserve your manly-ness. I have always dreamed of being Wonder Woman. My Hubs would be my superhero much like you are for Nat. He’s always there to open doors, help me carry things. He notices when I’m stressed or tired or just really busy with writing and offers to cook or do dishes, etc.In his case He’d be in blue shorts (he wears shorts year-round) and t-shirt with a carpenter’s belt stuffed with everything I usually carry in my heavy purse (hate carrying a purse). His t-shirt would have wings to carry me to places fast (he’s a slow driver) and his shorts would have really deep pockets to carry all the cash I’d love to have at my disposable.
    I LOVE Natsman! Great post, SCott. Thanks for the shout-out!

  5. That’s totally awesome. I love the graphics – from the hot, dude one down to the pink sparkly one. You truly ARE Natsman! The utility belt is a fabulous idea, you need to manufacture that for all of our husbands. If I were to be a super hero, it would have to be the MC of my book because she’s a total badass. She has super powers, can turn into a dragon, and is all about saving lives. My husband’s already a super hero to me because he loves me truly, madly, deeply even though I’m a bit of a nut case. 😉

  6. Classic! Hilarious and sweet at the same time!

    Dude, I’m thinking Nat’sman should be writing romance or fantasy. So very cool.

    Signed- The Black Widow.

  8. LOVED it! I don’t dare even try to think of a super hero, not after that bit of brilliance.


    • Hubby aka Blog Heckler says:

      Dig deep -I know you have one in there somewhere

      • How about this……. “Verbose-man!” His ability to talk in circles astounds and shocks all evil-doers, his raving rants wreak riotous havoc, and what he overdoes with mountains of commentary he makes up for in lack of a super hero outfit. I might wear a kilt (half Scottish and half Brazilian, go figure) and strap a keyboard across my bare back like a samurai sword.

        • Maybe you can be the Scotsman WITH a Brazilian, Zack. It’ll be the new superhero craze. Maybe only among the gay set, but it’ll be a craze nonetheless. (Only with you two could I make these jokes…)

        • LMAO

          Ha ha ha. It feels good to be included in that small group of joke-worthy peeps. This superhero is very straight, so he may need to forego the Brazilian.

          What if he carries tools of the waxing trade across his kilt, and be the Brazilian giver rather than the dude sporting a Brazilian?

        • ROFL!! LOVE IT!!!! 🙂

  9. Thanks for the giggles today! I’d love to see that outfit, hubby! You would be awesome. And you’re right about ladies’ outfits not having pockets; even on the rare occasions there IS a pocket, we gals don’t like to make the curves look lumpy. Am I right, ladies? 🙂

  10. OMG! And that’s pretty much all I can say. The visual is too hot to even ponder in my mind. Brain cells are burning trying to envision that super hero outfit. I am thrilled to know that you have carefully considered your options for items to have readily available for her ladyship’s whims. Every good Natsman will want to be prepared in every instance.

    I’m assuming you have a special little vial of olive oil stashed in the Natsman belt of your for when that special little occasion arises? Hmmm? Fess up. You have some on hand for those unexpected magical moments.

    Fun post. Silly and a little odd, but definitely fun.

  11. As I’ve told Natalie before, I save her blogs for my afternoon slump — always need something to get me going again — I may not leap tall buildings for the remainder of what I hope to accomplish today but with the proper amount of caffine, you have my mind buzzing again. What fun.

  12. Absolutely hilarious and entertaining prose, Scott! I think there are two writers in your family!
    My Hubby is my Superhero, too, but Donnasman just doesn’t sound as good as Natsman! And I do not want to see him in pink or bedazzled. I’m thinking barefoot in a black suit and white shirt and black tie! Oops did I say that out loud?!
    Well done, Scott!!!! Well done!!! 🙂

  13. GAAAAAAH! I can not believe I missed a Hubby’s Corner post.

    Why-oh-why did I choose yesterday for my get-a-grip-on-the-WIP day?

    After this post and the lovely tribute to your Awesomesauce Wife, I hope Nat spent much of the evening getting a grip on Dunt-da-da-da-daaaaaah!!!! Natman!.

    Assume any double entendre that suits you in that sentence. *whistling*


  1. […] And then I saw these awesome blogs about husbands and their super powers!  Natalie had her Hubby’s Corner and Jansen Schmidt blogged about “I’m Watching That”.  Both were hilariously […]

  2. […] Natalie Hartford’s husband, aka Bat Hubby, found today’s product and issued a blog challenge. I heard there’s gonna be Bat Hubby Awards for the winner so DO be sure to ring your cowbell in the comments. We need to show him which posse deserves the trophy! […]
