I’d really like to know.
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?
Does he/she have to be mutated or different in such a way they are an outcast of society?
Can a superhero be a regular person in the real world who does something above and beyond what is expected?
Can they be someone who fights for our freedom in a war no one wants?
Can they be someone who gives without wanting or expecting anything in return to those who have nothing?
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?
