"Supergirl" — A comic book-to-movie adaptation writing sample. An origin story of the DC Comics character (the original Kara Zor-El from Krypton). Comments from industry readers in the early 1990s: "Highly entertaining and visually exciting . . . Action scenes jump to life, providing fantastic visual descriptions . . . am also impressed by your dialogue . . . Clearly you know your subject and it shows." — film industry story analyst (studio/agency reader). | "You have a good visual sense. Your descriptive writing is excellent. . . . faithful to the comic books." — produced screenwriter-director. | Script: 141 pages. Treatment: 3 pages. Note: This is a comic book adaptation/superhero writing sample only. It was written over 20 years ago, my first screenwriting attempt, because I had been a collector of Superman and Supergirl comic books as a child growing up in the 1960s and had a complete archive (1959-1985) of Supergirl appearances up until the original character's demise in 1985.

Strange Talents — Writing also as James Conrad (without my middle initial), I have had articles published about, and conducted laboratory research in, psychokinesis (specifically, telekinesis) and have witnessed parapsychological and frontier physics phenomena in real life that are usually only found in the pages of science fiction. That is me on the left with the curly hair in 1956 and on the right, in my private telekinesis laboratory in 2001. Photos © James A. Conrad
