Every story needs a protagonist and an antagonist.
In my story Stink Bomb, it was fun to assemble my cast of characters. I decided on writing a story about the world of insects, but I wanted to put together a cast that was both memorable and remarkable. I decided to use a superhero theme that would pull in readers. Because superhero stories are basically good versus evil, the task seemed clear. I knew finding a villain would be easy. After all, there are so many creatures in the insect world that make us cringe with disgust. Finding a hero was not as easy until I came upon the bombardier beetle.
