Superheroes is a game played during the Acting Improv activity.


  • One person to start
  • Audience members jump in one by one

How does it work?

A participant is assigned a superhero identity by the audience, and the audience also decides on a problem that needs to be solved. That participant then begins to improvise attempts to solve the problem, then calls on a new superhero to help. That superhero then calls on another, until the general consensus indicates that there are enough superheroes "on stage." Then, one by one, each participant leaves until only the original superhero is left on stage. Finally, the problem is solved.

This game is similar in several aspects to 1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1.
