    "need to make a superhero with the chemical neon"- What does that mean?

    Wikipedia is always a nice place to start looking for information :)

    That sounds like a funny project. Well, Neon is a Noble Gas, so he probably comes from the royal family of some obscure country. He is a pretty small guy, in his family only helium is smaller (so maybe he is a she). He doesn't bond with anything so definitely the "loner" kind of superhero. His superpower would probably have something to do with lightning (neon lights) or lasers (He-Ne lasers).

    It's more important you do the work then.

    DaleSpam gave you some good tips on how to start. Maybe you can build on it with your own ideas? For example, if you look up the periodic table, you can find other elements which are similar.

    The point is that, this is your project so try searching for information and use your creativity to come up with ideas of your own. Have fun and best of luck.
