This year Jones has discovered Super Heroes. He loves them. He loves Superman the very best. He only found out about super heroes a couple of months ago, but he knows so many names and facts already, it amazes me! When he hit the dinosaur phase (which isn’t gone, just in the background right now), I had to bone-up (pun intended) on all my dinosaur facts. Now I find myself looking up the name of Superman’s mum, and any information on Krypton I can find.
One of Jonesies favourite things to know is a super hero’s secret identity: Diana Prince, Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, Arthur Curry, the list goes on! Super Jones secret identity is Professor Jones (I know, it’s not that secret when they are both named Jones, but he’s 5 and he likes it). And so I give you, Professor Jones.

Professor Jones is a Paleontologist. When he isn’t fighting crime as Super Jones, he is digging up dinosaur bones and trying to extract dino-DNA to make a real live T-Rex. You can find him in the field, presumably covered in dust, or in his office, pouring over dino books in the cozy sweater his mum knit for him. Every professor needs a tweedy cardigan with a shawl collar and pockets, and a bow tie to add a little eccentric flair. They just do.
