Since I'm in front of a keyboard:

Some of my family are fairly involved.  I somtimes bounce ideas off my
mom, brother and sisters.  My sisters were even involved in the process
of creating a character.  My younger sister even created a character,
though she didn't get tooo far into the story, it was quite good.
Aside from my younger sister starting on a character, I've never gotten
anyone to join.  :(  Of course I've showed them my writing  ;)  Even
though my mom at least is a regular reader (of books), I don't think
she gets super-heroes.  She knows I like funny-books and like writing
super-heroic fantasy (for I have a list of _everything_ super-heroic
I've written and am writing, and in big bold letters atop those pages:
SUPER-HEROIC FANTASY), but has enjoyed little else.  My younger sister
will buy a comic on certain occasions, but isn't big on them.  My
brother is into comics like me.  I keep telling him he should write
(he's talented enough I believe).  He is more into fantasy like Conan
than super-heroes.
