Have you ever wanted to save the earth from all sorts of atrocities? Super heroes do it each and every day. They come to life on the big and small screens and also in comic books. Whilst fictional, it's so easy to fall under their spell when they can all carry out acts of an awesome nature by employing their super powers to help the frightened and downtrodden people of planet earth. It is their sworn duty to defend the people and to fight crime, in all its forms as well as risking their own lives for the sake of others. Comic books online introduced us to our super heroes and made it clear how they all obtained their powers and why they began to fight crime to start with.
To begin with we have Superman, a comic book hero that's excited generations of us thus far and is continuing to thrill new generations at his acts of super human strength and power, his x-ray eyes as well as his ability to fly. 1938 introduced the very first ever Superman comic books for sale and ignited our liking for all things super human.
Kal-el, Superman’s original name, resided on a planet called Krypton. His parents placed him inside an escape pod right before Krypton exploded which carried him on a direct course to earth. Kal-el crash landed onto a farm and was found by Martha and Jonathan Kent, who right away named him Clark. Growing up, Clark realises that he has superhuman powers and is almost invincible. The only two weak spots being an inability to be near to radioactive material from his home planet, identified as kryptonite and he has issues with seeing through lead.
One other super hero who has leapt from the pages of a comic book to the silver screen is Peter Parker, sometimes better known as Spiderman. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Peter found he had spider-like powers. He is able to walk up walls, has amazing reflexes, the power to cast spider webs from his wrists and likewise has amazing strength. After a robbery went wrong, leading to the loss of Peter’s uncle Ben, he put on the mask of Spiderman and vowed to look after the people from criminals so no one else would withstand losing someone close like he had.
The mum and dad of this next super hero were murdered by a mugger whilst walking home. This particular boy had no powers to speak of although he and his family lived in a mansion and were enormously wealthy, which presupposed that he would be able to afford to purchase or create the gizmos and weapons he would ultimately employ to defend the people and fight crime. He is needless to say, Bruce Wayne. Bruce discovered a cave (what became the bat cave) below his mansion and when exploring it many bats came flurrying in the direction of him, scaring him. If by chance these bats could really scare him then perhaps they would also frighten the villains too and it was then that Batman was born.
All of these super heroes have been incredibly successful through the years and popular with nearly any age group. Due to countless comic books on film and TV, their popularity will not be going away any time soon.
