3 Super heroes © 2015 Superhero In modern popular fiction, a superhero (sometimes rendered super-hero or super hero) is a type of hero character possessing extraordinary talents, supernatural phenomena, or superhuman powers and dedicated to protecting the public. A female superhero is sometimes called a super heroine (also rendered super- heroine or super heroine). Fiction centered around such characters, especially in American comic books since the 1930s, is known as superhero fiction.

5 Super heroes © 2015 Superhero comics Superhero comics are a form of American comic books. The form rose to prominence in the 1930s and 1940s and has remained the dominant form of comic book in North America since the 1960s. Superhero comics feature stories about superheroes and the universes these characters inhabit.

6 Super heroes © 2015 Common costume features A superhero's costume helps make him or her recognizable to the general public. Costumes are often colorful to enhance the character's visual appeal and frequently incorporate the superhero's name and theme. For example, Daredevil resembles a red devil, Captain America's costume echoes the American flag, Batman's costume resembles a large bat, and Spider-Man's costume features a spiderweb pattern. The convention of superheroes wearing masks (frequently without visible pupils) and skintight unitards originated with Lee Falk's comic strip hero The Phantom.

7 Super heroes © 2015 WHAT DO YOU AND SUPERHEROES HAVE IN COMMON? Ever noticed that superheroes all have one thing in common? I don’t mean a tendency to wear their underwear on the outside; I’m referring to something much more important than that. Superheroes all have their own way of invoking their powers, turning them from mere mortals into champions of justice out to save the world from evil. I’m thinking here of the Incredible Hulk bursting from his clothes, Batman’s dramatic pole slide, and my favorite Wonder Woman’s twirl. And while superheroes may be fictional, the process of invoking their powers draws on some very real life research into the factors which boost your personal confidence, performance and success.
