Today Get Jack’d is pleased to have snagged a quick interview with, none other than, Shero! So, without further adieu, let’s ask the serious, hard-hitting questions.
JW: First of all, I have to ask…
Shero: No you don’t.
JW: Really, I do.
Shero: Really, you don’t.
JW: Okay, I won’t.
Shero: You shouldn’t.
JW: I just…
Shero: I’m kidding. Ask away.
JW: I have to know if the dress and heels is a gimick — like a costume — or if it’s just who you are.
Shero: My clothes are nothing more than the outward expression of my heart, my soul, of me. It’s who I am, what I am. And, sweetie, I rock this dress.
JW: I must say…you do. But, isn’t it challenging to fight crime in those heels? I can’t imagine it being easy to even walk in them, let alone chase down criminals.
Shero: You’d be surprised at what you can do in heels. Actually these particular heels are quite special. Fiend (she’s our tech Goddess at SSH) worked a little psyonic magic on these babies, so not only do these sexy things feel like I’m running in a sprinter’s shoe, this pencil-thin heel can withstand being run over by a fat man trying to get up my skirt — and believe me, many a fat man have tried.
JW: So you get hit on by men? What is their reaction when, well, they find out?
Shero: Do you really think they get that close to the goods? Not a chance in Hell! There are only a select few that have crossed my River Styx and, before you ask, those names are stored in a bank vault buried about two hundred yards underground.
JW: Your toughest foe so far?
Shero: The court of public opinion. I’ve fought some of the most incredibly powerful super villains this universe has ever imagined, but they all pale in comparison to winning over the public. Although I strongly believe I have finally reached a point where I can walk the streets without getting laughed at and mocked, it’s been a rough battle.
JW: Do you think it has helped the public to accept you knowing how much safer they are with you protecting them?
Shero: Of course. If I were just the average Joe in a dress, I wouldn’t stand a chance. That’s why the rich and famous have always been given free reign to dress behave as they please — the public depends upon those people for entertainment and to show how “normal” their lives are. If everyone’s life were a train wreck, do you think reality TV would even exist? No way sister. Reality is a shopping trip to Walmart and no one wants to sit in front of a TV for hours a time with the real truth on display! The public wants the candy-coated, sexy, shiny vampire truth. The public wants “dis-reality” from their stars. Because I protect them in ways the police and the armed forces can not, I am allowed a bit more than average freedom. And don’t get me wrong, for that I am eternally grateful.
JW: If there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would it be?
Shero: You are a saucy one aren’t you? You’re trying to get me to say something like Oh I’d give anything to be a woman! Well, flush that tampon down the toilet right now, cause this boy likes his plumbing the way it is. The only thing I would like to change about myself is…oh who am I kidding? I’m a super hero, not a somewhat super hero or a poseur hero. Oh…that just sounded horrid. It makes me seem like an ego-maniacal blow-hard. Please don’t print that.
You’re going to print that aren’t you? Oh curse you and your words.
JW: You’re not going to stun me with your fingernails are you?
Shero: Actually I was about to pull out my steel — and by ‘steel’ I do mean my Katana.
JW: My mind was not in the gutter.
Shero: It wasn’t? Would you like it to be? I could do that Sharon Stone leg cross thing and your mind would gently slide ever-long into that slimy pit of shame.
JW: Let’s end on this question: Is there anyone special out there? Anyone you’d like to give a special mention to?
Shero: There are a number of special someone’s out there. I love my fans and I would give anything to be able to spend time with each and every one of them. But Fiend is probably the one that deserves the special wink, nudge, and hug. She’s the one that really rocks my stockings off.
JW: Thank you, Shero, for taking time from your busy schedule to chat here at Get Jack’d. I’m sure you have to get back to fighting crime. Good luck and be safe.
Shero: Thank you Jack. Stay sexy!
