Your task this week is to become a superhero and save the world -- in this case, solving the problem of too few tangerines. How would you go about doing this?

It's completely up to you!

All entries must be made as comments to this journal. Be sure to include:

:bulletyellow: Your superhero name

Oh no! The evil orange-haired Tangerine Queen with her Cher-like appearance has returned! :iconafraidmonkeyplz:
Legend has it that she steals all of the tangerines to keep her hair that bright orange color.

Men have even written a song about her telling of her evil deeds: :cd: The Tangerine Queen
It is my duty as Barber The Barbarian to cut this evil queen down to size and restore balance to the land of Tangeria.

I will raise an army of Tangerian Knights to fight and weaken the queen in battle. And once she's in a weakened state, I will be able to get close enough to use my special power, The Buzz Cut, to shave the queen's long flowing orange hair and therefore take away her power to steal tangerines.

Victory will be ours!! :iconyesvictoryplz:

Tangerines are important. Everyone knows they're what they use to fuel the nuclear power plants of the world. So when I got wind of this terrible crisis, I knew I had to act.

My name is Manifold. Well, actually my name is Fra-- Oh! Oh-ho, almost told you! Can't be blabbing my secret identity all over the place (though if you think about it, Manifold is my secret identity... when I'm out of uniform... so I suppose it's... all relative). Anyway, they call me Manifold because I've got a ton of powers. Like at least three that I know of, but probably more! Like, I can walk through walls (it's more of a lean than a walk really, and it takes about four hours to get all the way through, but it's still pretty unbelievable), and I can put my feet behind my head.

But the greatest power of all is my ability to stop time.

For everyone else, I mean. Ha ha, obviously. So, I'm still moving around, and stuff that I touch can move around, but everything else is standing still. It's pretty sweet.

And that was the power I used in solving the tangerine crisis.

Or as I like to call it, Operation Flaming Velociraptor.

So I stopped time and got online to find out the location of the nearest tangerine factory. That didn't work out so well because all the servers were frozen, so I walked to the library instead and searched until I found what I needed.

Turns out tangerines are not like oranges, they don't come from factories. They grow on farms in places like Korea, Sicily, and Western Canada. I decided on Canada because there would be no oceans involved. It still took me about a month to walk there though. It wasn't all bad, I saw lots of deer, and even a pheasant in flight. That was real spiffy.

When I got to the tangerine farm I found out that it wasn't a matter of the tangerines being hoarded and hidden away by villains, it was an actual shortage shortage. Like, there just weren't enough trees producing fruit.

So I spent about six months leaning against each of the trees in turn so that their fruit would grow while time was stopped. That way, at the end of the six months I'd unfreeze time and all the trees would be full of fruit and the farmers would be super surprised.

I uh, I did a lot of reading.

A lot.

But in the end, Operation Flaming Velociraptor was a huge success. On that one farm anyway. But there were tons of tangerines when I was finished, so I'm sure it was enough to offset the global deficiency.

All in six-month's work, for Manifold!

Superhero Name: The Green Thumb

Superhero Power: Ability to communicate with plants. Whether it's fraternizing with a fern, canoodling with a cactus or rapping with a raspberry bush, our hero, also known as The Plant Whisperer gets to the 'root' of the problem.

How will this help tangerine shortage: By 'talking' and hanging out with the remaining tangerines to get the scoop on their dwindling numbers. Whether it's hunger, thirst, disease or rivallry with their nemesis the clementine, The Green Thumb will use his powers to help the tangerines thrive again!

Yeah, I know.... but it's all I could come up with! ;)

:bulletorange: Name: Murcott Man

:bulletorange: Super Power: The ability to grow strong healthy plants via musical stimulation!

:bulletorange: The Story:
A feeling of sadness had crept into the land. For years, the people of Earth had been a very vibrant race, but now a shortage of tangerines has threatened their very existence. You see, not only did the vast fields of tangerines make the hillsides a beautiful and fragrant scene, but the fruit also provided a crucial source of vitamin C to the people of Earth. Without the tangerines, people were starting to grow weak and lethargic. It was apparent that scurvy was starting to set in.

All efforts seemed hopeless. For the past few months, many efforts to produce the coveted tangerine had failed miserably. They tended to plants in the field with extra care minding to ensure they had plenty of water, sunshine, and nutrients. But the plants failed to produce any fruit. If only there were a solution. They just needed someone to show them the way!

As the people lost the last of their hope that the tangerines would ever come back, there was a large flash in the distant sky.... and there he stood. Tall, handsome, and smelling of sweet citrus! "Could it be?" the people of Earth cried out. Then from the back of the crowd a man shouted, "It's him! Murcott Man!"

An explosion of clapping, cheering, and whistling broke the silence that had recently blanketed the land. A saviour had arrived, surely Murcott Man would bring back the life of their fields of plants!

"People of Earth," came his thundering voice, "I have descended on your planet to bring to you the knowledge needed to once again produce plentiful amounts of tangerines!"

"You see," he continued, "the knowledge of growth is simple, and once used by many in this land. However, throughout the years these techniques have been forgotten and abandoned by your race. And now an epidemic has come from the foolish lack. I shall teach you all once again how to produce the succulent fruit!"

The people of Earth were relieved and excited, for they would soon be swimming in mounds upon mounds of bright orange tangerines! Then, came the oddest of requests.

"Quickly, people of Earth," came Murcott Man's request, "gather the members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra!"

"What?" they cried out! "How on Earth is a concert going to help at a time like this? But they knew Murcott Man was very wise, and a call was sent to all members of the orchestra to assemble at once on the hillsides of the tangerine fields.

Soon the fields were overcome by the buzz of instruments trying to find that perfect tune. As Murcott Man approached the podium, the humming from the assembly ceased. With a sharp rap, rap, rap of his baton every member of the ensemble quickly came to attention, ready for the cue from their conductor.

Soon, Mozart's music as flying through the air. As majestic as it was, the people of Earth still stood in confusion at the sight before them. Surly their key to growing success lied deeper than a well played tune. They struggled to maintain faith that Murcott Man was going to bring prosperity back to their barren fields.

Hours passed and still all hope seemed lost. As the musical show came to a close, the people of Earth started to turn and leave, headed back to their homes to mope in defeat. "People of Earth, have faith, for in the morning your fields will be abloom with life!" cried out Murcott Man. He knew it was true, but wondered if even one person believed him.

Morning came swiftly and as the groggy people of Earth arose from their slumber, a familiar scent danced through the air. The sweat smell of pollen infiltrated their nostrils. With the excitement of a child on Christmas morning, they rushed to the windows to see what had occurred while they had napped.

It was a majestic view, as the sun filtered through the leafy branches of the trees, one could see the bright white blossoms that adorned the branches. "It's a miracle," came a shout from the street!

"No fair people of Earth, that's the power of music!" announced a thundering voice from the sky. Murcott Man was hovering above the speckled fields of freshly blossomed tangerine plants. "Remember this, have faith, and you will forever have an abundance of tangerines!" With that, Murcott Man turned and in a blink of an eye, vanished back into the sky from which he had came.

A festival ensued and the people of Earth celebrated their bountiful crops. And every year since, they pay tribute to the one who showed them the way and saved their fields. A concert is played and they celebrate the coming of a prosperous harvest.

To refurnish the tangerines, I'd spread peace among the humans (and aliens) of Earth so that everyone who was at war would be overjoyed for now apparent reason. They'd end the wars and I'd set up a giant tangerine orchard over the battlefield. All of the soldiers, now out of a job, would grow tangerines!

:bulletorange: Name: Dr Fashion M.D.

:bulletorange: Power: Trust me, i'm a doctor. And fashionable. :iconhandsomeonionplz:

:bulletorange: How to use such powers to solve the tangerine shortage
Well obviously there is a tangerine supply shortage because the people of the world are eating far too many of the fruit, and so they will notice a shortage when there is one. As a very fashionable doctor, it would be a simple matter of spreading a totally scientific report stating that apples have the ability to prevent all sorts of health problems, and that eating too many tangerines in a short span of time could increase other health problems. Since people tend to listen to doctors and scientific reports many would turn to eating apples instead (in case of apple shortage, we'll just change the fruit until we eventually end up back at tangerines).

For those that dont pay attention to doctors or scientific reports, that's where the fashion part comes in. As a true fashionista i'd tell all the fashion outlets that the colour orange and tangerines are so passe and last years fashion, and that the in thing now is apparently green and things related to kiwi fruits. They'd believe me...cos that's one of my powers the power of bullshitting is another apparently lol. As such slaves to fashion will also convert and consume less tangerines.

Thus people stop eating them, and don't notice there is a shortage because less people are eating them, and in the meantime the tangerines are free to mate and grow and produce little baby tangerines for future eating! :dummy:

Name: May R. Berenbaum
Superhero Name: 2011 Taylor Prize Award Winner for Environmental Achievement, Professor Berenbaum
Superpower: Research, Promoting Awareness / Arming the Public with Knowledge, and Mass Implementation of Small- Scale Scientific Studies

Explanation: The world's supply of tangerines is low because of the international crisis of Colony Collapse Disorder amongst bee populations leading to plants being under pollinated. Professor Berenbaum is one among many trying to do something to help save the species, but more people need to be aware of this catastrophe in order for it to get the support that it both needs and deserves because this affects every life on this planet. It goes beyond bees, honey, fruit, or plant populations - due to the fact that plants have been proven to help reduce Global Warming, this could even lead to an even faster rate of climate change.

Everyone who sees this and is fortunate enough to have some disposable income that they dedicate to NPOs and charities, please consider adding this and other environmental bee funds to your lists of possible organizations deserving of your philanthropies.

(Also, if this comment wins, please give my free prize to the next deviant who purchases the stress balls and donate that $12 to the NPO fund linked above. Thank you everyone, keep raising awareness, and please have a delightful weekend and proceeding week. :thanks:)

In lieu of the tangerine shortage caused by the recent catastrophic drought, I would clear my schedule for the next six months. Then (when absolutely sure that my pets were taken care of and that no one would worry about my disappearence) I would travel to the epicenter of tangerine farms and enter the atmosphere by shifting to water vapor. Once there, I would then shift to liquid and fall as rain onto the parched plants before being absorbed into their roots. I would enter the trees through their roots, then exit again in the form of water vapor only to start the cycle once again. By the end of my six months, the natural rains would have returned and I would be fully clear of my leafy prison, free to condense to my natural fleshy state once more and enjoy the "fruits of my labor".
