The government has unveiled the latest weapon in the fight against crime and anti-social behaviour in the form of a masked social conscience protagonist called simply 'SuperHead'. By day, Superhead is a mild-mannered principal of an inner-city comprehensive, but when night falls, by God, he's the answer to all your prayers.
SuperHead will sit waiting and watching for any indiscretions by children in his care aged 11-19 behind a bank of screens fed by CCTV cameras in the catchment area of his school. If necessary, people of the district can shine the 'ASBO Warning signal' up onto the clouds as a sign that society needs help, and needs it NOW!
Faster than a speeding bullet that's been delayed in transit to Afghanistan. Faster than a speeding train that's been delayed due to unscheduled engineering works just outside Crewe. SuperHead will be there for everyone in society with his utility belt stuffed with state-of-the-art 'nip it in the bud' crime prevention (for the betterment of society) equipment.
The first real test of SuperHead's powers will be seen this coming Hallowe'en, when children dressed as all sorts of nasty, ghoulish goth-like creatures will roam freely around the nation's streets, demanding sweets or threatening to pull up the plants in the garden if they don't like the brand of toffee on offer.
'I'll be there, ready to step in at a moment's notice,' said Hackney-based SuperHead, Mike Farley, who also makes model aircraft, 'They can put on any disguise they like, but I know who they are and under the powers invested in me, I'll restrain them, yes I will, and put them all in detention right up to Christmas. As long as they don't go on strike first, of course, and start banging on about Human Rights.'
