“You may not have the ability to manipulate magnetic fields or have tantalizing gadgets, but who’s to say that being a hero is solely contingent on the gifts that one possesses? Perhaps it’s more to do with how one wields his or her own strengths. Aside from having super human abilities, it may in actuality be the empowerment woven into these superheroes that have captivated us. That in some way, they have served to teach principles of morality and cultivate the idea of having a responsibility to ourselves and to the world.”
