About Superheroes

A superhero (sometimes rendered super-hero or super hero) is a type of stock character possessing 'extraordinary or superhuman powers' and dedicated to protecting the public. Since the debut of the prototypical superhero Superman in 1938, stories of superheroes_ranging from brief episodic adventures to continuing years-long sagas_have dominated American comic books and crossed over into other media. The word itself dates to at least 1917. A female superhero is sometimes called a superheroine (also rendered super-heroine or super heroine). 'SUPER HEROES' is a trademark co-owned by DC Comics and Marvel Comics.
