What defines a Superhero to you?

I’d really like to know.

What defines a superhero?

Does he/she have to wear spandex? A cape? A costume so ridiculous no man or woman alive would wear it?

Does he/she have to be an alien with amazing powers or immense mechanical power?

Or a giant robot warrior fighting an endless battle against evil?

Does he/she have to have super powers and be out of this world?

Or be a multi-billoinaire with lots of cool gadgets and determination?

Can they be someone who simply shares a few words of kindness, words that change or save a life…

 

 

All of these are superheroes to me.

What is a superhero to you?
