It’s the Cheapskate to the Rescue!

People are reacting to the economic downturn in different ways. Some folks are trying to change careers, whether they really want to or not. Lots of people are sensibly scaling back. Still others are taking a rather proactive approach: They’re turning into superheroes. No joke, as CNN reports.

Somebody’s gotta take matters into their own hands, right? Why not the Cheapskate? That doesn’t sound like a good enough superhero name, though. What would I do? Nickel and dime bad guys to death? Expand dollar bills into giant Benjamins that I toss over evildoers? Maybe a name like Frugalio is cooler? The Thriftinator? I’ll keep brainstorming names while waiting for that radioactive potion I just downed to kick in.
