Superheroesque was founded by Liz Locksley and Mia Moore, who thought there weren’t enough positive, self-love messages for outcasts. We both grew up as nerds with little media representation of girls like us. It’s tough to be comfortable with your geekiness without other examples of people like you embracing their nerdy side – so that’s what we set out to do.
On February 13, 2014 – Galentine’s Day – Superheroesque went live… and now you’re a part of our story.
Superheroesque is a community about celebrating who you are and what you love. It’s a place where outrageous geekery is not only acceptable, but encouraged. No matter your race, size, shape, gender, creed, or background, everyone is welcome and encouraged to join the party. Superheroesque’s mission is to help you love who you are and work to be the best version of yourself possible. It’s not about perfection, it’s about progress and enjoying the process. We strive to create a community of not only self acceptance, but acceptance of those around you. Superheroesque is a home for everyone – a safe place for nerdy references, punny jokes, and critical geek culture discussions. Above all, Superheroesque is a judgment-free, positive zone of love and geeking out. You can read our official mission here.
