Disclaimer: These series (hopefully) has nothing to with the TV show ‘Heroes’.
Mankind has always looked for heroes to look up to, to admire, to inspire them. In 1938, from the pages of Action Comics #1, arose a new kind of hero. This man differed from previous ‘heroes’, in that he was able to lift cars above his head with the greatest of ease, and leap tall buildings in a single leap. This ‘Superman’ ushered in a new age of heroes, a new form of of escapism, where men could defy the laws of nature. Since that day, Superman has inspired legions of superheroes, who have entertained and inspired us for decades.
