A Phantom in Purple (and in Novi)

My favorite color is purple.  How cool would it be if I was a superhero and I got to wear purple all of the time?!  That's exactly what the Phantom is.  I know I will never be a superhero and it only follows that I can't dress in purple all of the time. 
At the 2010 Motor City Comic Con, I met a guy who was a superhero and did wear purple, although probably just for the duration of the convention.  I don't know who he was, but he was the Phantom to all who asked.
The Phantom is an interesting superhero in that he has no super powers.  That's doesn't sound much like a superhero to me.  Ahh but he is a superhero and he has been fighting bad guys for about 80 years.
On second thought, if he doesn't have any super powers but is a superhero, perhaps I could be a superhero, too.  Then I would dress in purple and achieve my dream.
The Phantom and me in Novi, MI-May 2010.
