This won’t change the fact I’ll probably sleep in my closet with a riffle for the next couple days – just in case. The guy is a trained military man and, and I really, really mean this, an all around good guy who can take a joke. Especially a fella in his 30s – not 20s like yesterday – but thirties. Older. Wiser. Or, just older. ]
In honor of the latest Batman movies, which tell the story of a hero (and all around good guy who has a great sense of humor and great friend is a hell of a lot older now) I’m going to tell the story of Michael A Jurick Jr – not only how a young man growing up in West Virginia becomes a kick-ass military guy but also as an exclusive to this blog, we shall unveil his alter-ego as well.
Sometimes a good movie starts with the end and works its way backwards – so to will this post
Mike Jurick – super hero
But how does this 30 year old guy go from sweet young man?:
There were other options:
NASCAR for instance – but that was too slow
Rock music – because chicks dig a guy who can play guitar – but later he found the nice young ladies really like well dressed men:
Big bow tie, or small:

But, when everything was said in done (at least to this point) fighting bad guys publicly required at least one side-arm:
and an alter-ego similar to Clark Kent:
But everyone knows Clark is really superman:
Mike Jurick Jr – today’s your birthday my friend. If you know Mike or don’t – please leave him a comment and a birthday wish.
In case you’re wondering how these pictures ended up scanned and on my hard-drive – you can certainly thank the two most important women in your life.
Happy Birthday! Corky is still on top of that car roof and enjoy the day!
