Stronger than a frog
Faster than a rock
Smarter than a piece of pie
What a guy . . . Captain Hero
Captain Hero, portrayed by Hot Hero Sandwich’s resident child actor Adam Ross, along with the Puberty Fairy, is one of the show’s more surreal elements. On Hot Hero Sandwich, Captain Hero typically appears when there is a threat to a friend or family member, using his intelligence or a special ability to foil the evildoer.
It’s a common enough experience for children to pretend they’re superheroes. On one hand, it is a relatively healthy exercise of the imagination, provided one does not jump off a roof pretending to fly. On the other hand, imaginary play can become a safe place from dysfunction and trauma. It is not uncommon for children of dysfunctional families to grow up and work as counselors, teachers, social workers, and First Responders — becoming, in a way, the superheroes they always wanted to be.
