My friends at Batch Blue Software are holding a superhero contest this week, with prizes including a customizable build-it-yourself bicycle, Web apps, coffee, and a small business library that includes my Plan As You Go Business Plan Book. Here’s what they say:

We know small business owners are super human. Now’s your chance to reveal your unique powers to the world! We’ve teamed up with some other cool services to offer some great prizes that will help you grow your small business by leaps and bounds. Are you the 2010 Small Business Super Hero? You tell us.

This year’s top prize is pretty rad – a customizable bike from Republic Bike. What better way to zoom around getting the word out about your business? The prize package also includes books, delicious coffee, business software, sweet new MOO cards and lasting fame and glory on the BatchBlog.

Superheroes are both genders, right? You have men, women, girls and boys?  Aquagirl and Wonder Woman are both superheroes? I’m just a bit confused because Wikipedia has a page each for superheroes and superheroines, which bothers me. Certainly Batch Blue wants both, that’s for sure. And acknowledges both.

The contest is fun and runs this week to celebrate National Small Business Week.
