Each card has one or more hidden treasures about our superheroes' life experiences, depictions in art, jobs or discoveries. Can you find them all? Mary has two. (1) The background of her card is the Golden Cap outcrop, the very same background can be found in the 1842 Portrait of Mary Anning. (2) Mary had a lucky escape when she was a baby, the woman carrying her was struck by lightning.
Current location: Our superheroes' locations are tied to events or discoveries in their lives. Mary Anning is somewhere in the Mesozoic era. Why? She discovered a complete plesiosaur skeleton, which is a Mesozoic marine reptile.
Superpower: Superpowers are selected based on the superhero's field and discoveries. Here we picked Fossilization as Mary was a famous paleontologist and fossil collector.
Sidekick: All great superheroes have a sidekick. As children, Mary and her brother Joseph went fossil hunting to supplement the family's income.
Weakness: Every superhero has a weakness. For Mary it is asteroids. Sadly for the dinosaurs a 9km wide asteroid thumped into the earth contributing to their extinction.
Passion: Uncover the superheroes passions - inventions, interests or discoveries. Mary's discoveries included the first Ichthyosaur skeleton. These were large marine reptiles that lived 250 million years ago.
