Superheroes never reveal their identity. They are always unknown to the normal public. Until and unless the other person is really close to you and you really want to tell them about your ‘little secret’, you do not take off your mask and you do not tell them what you have been doing at night, or while you have been away. Therefore, if you want to be a superhero, you have to find yourself a good disguise so that others do not recognize you. It does not really mean that you copy Spiderman and cover your whole face; even a mask that covers half your face will do the trick.

All superheroes in the world fight for a cause. So, if you want to become a superhero, you need to have a cause. You can pick up almost anything. Starting from freeing your people, to asking other people to wash their hair; anything is possible. Take up a cause and fight for it, and never ever deviate from it.
All superheroes have an enemy and they are mostly the people who come in the way of the superhero’s cause. Therefore, make an enemy and make sure that you stand up against them whenever possible. For obvious reasons, when you are fighting for your own cause, they will stand up against you. That is the time for you to fight against your enemies and that is when you will show them what exactly you are made off. Fight while being in disguise so that others do not know your true identity.
You need to have a sidekick in order to become a full superhero. Imagine Batman without Robin, he would not have been a complete superhero. Find yourself a sidekick and make sure that you make the right choice. The sidekick should be a trusted person who does not reveal your identity and does not backstab you for anything that is offered to him. Once you have chosen the sidekick, you have someone to watch your back and that is when you are ready to fight for your cause.
