Superheroes have gone from obscure characters in the pages of comic books to beloved characters idolized and adored by fans of all ages, as the pop culture world basks in the glory of a superheroic supernova.

Superheroes came from the minds of some mighty creative folks who had a flash of inspiration
They didn't know it then, but those creators were busy building a mythology for the future
A modern mythology that is populated with extremely likeable characters in iconic costumes
These characters would come to be known as superheroes, and like any good character they're nothing without a colorful backstory
But some heroes are harder to kill than others
And some villains won't give up trying to take out the hero as long as there's a laugh left in 'em
Heroes often band together in groups, so they can tackle tougher villains together
Although some heroes operate like a one man team
Superheroes are supposed to wear a snazzy costume, that's part of their appeal
Some wear the costume all day every day, becoming one with their alter ego
Others don't have the option of removing their costume, because they're a freakin' raccoon from outer space!
The costume is just as important to the villains as it is to the heroes, and a sinister costume leaves a bold impression
The costume can also provide cover for those who prefer to remain in the shadows
And then there's that most famous of all aliens who wears a great big S on his chest, he's hard to miss!
An identity that matches a costume is an integral part of the superhero game, because no one will respect you if you can't live up to your name
The same is true on the wrong side of the law- you must live up to your name if you truly want to be a thorn in the side of justice
Of course, it can be hard to maintain a terrifying persona when you're named after a waddling penguin
And how different would the team that starts with an X be if their main mauler was named after a tangerine instead of a wolverine?
Superhero teams rely on individuality, and require each hero to pull their own weight
Which is why some loner types like to go off on their own Logan's run!
Teams are an integral part of the superheroic multiverse, they're the unified forces sworn to save mankind
Some join the team out of the blue, representatives from another world
Others come looking to team up because they heard there would be free food
And then there are the wildcards, the characters who can't decide which side they belong on
Those characters make for a more interesting world, a world constantly at war within itself
Which is just what those superheroic folks live for, because without constant action even the mightiest heroes can grow soft
And then who would save the Earth from utter destruction?
We've been loving those spandex clad superfolks for a long time
And as we grow up with our favorite heroes they become a part of who we are, the powerful people who live in our imagination.
