Sophomore Superheroes Win 'Justice League' Prize

Kyle and Cole Nordmann walked the red carpet as grand prize winners of an all-expenses paid trip to the world premiere of “Justice League” in Los Angeles in November. The identical twins from Belleville, Ill., and three Althoff High School friends won a nationwide “League Up” contest sponsored by Warner Bros. and DC Comics.

The three-round contest brought the spirit of five superheroes to life. Kyle and Cole’s team formed a league, with each member exemplifying qualities of Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Batman, Aquaman or Flash. Kyle chose Flash for his courage and drive, while Cole, a computer science major with a 4.0 GPA, chose Batman for his determination and intelligence. They hosted a superhero-themed event for first graders at Paul Dunbar Elementary School in East St. Louis, Ill., with activities focused on anti-bullying, science, and environmental awareness. The contest winners were determined by DC All Access app votes and a panel of judges.
