A superhero often looks like a normal person, like me and you, but there is usually something secret about them. They often have an extraordinary skill, or characteristic, that makes them really strong or powerful. Superheroes are usually good; they often want to use their skills for the betterment of humanity. But sometimes they can go bad. The most famous superhero franchise is Marvel Comics. There are whole worlds dreamed up in comics that describes the adventures of superheroes. These include Spider-man, Captain Marvel, Wonderwoman, and Batman to name a few.

What makes someone a superhero?

A superhero is considered to be a person who does heroic actions and has the ability to do them in a way that a normal person couldn’t. Superheroes have a super power that a normal human doesn’t have and use that superpower to create a more peaceful society. Superheroes are characters that are believable and live realistic lives, the only difference are their superpowers.

Why do superheroes wear capes?

Superheroes wear capes to signal the direction of where they are moving. Superheroes don’t wear capes as much anymore as capes can be dangerous, catch onto objects in different environments, and can become a safety hazard. Besides Superman and Batman it is rare to find superhero with a cape. Villains are more likely than superheroes to wear capes as they strive to show that they are powerful and prepared.

Who was the first superhero?

The first modern superhero is Mandrake the Magician who debuted in 1934. He debuted 4 years before Superman who is considered the first popular superhero. Mandrake was able to make people believe anything by hypnotizing them. He was the first comic strip character to use his special superpowers to fight crime. Gilgamesh may be considered the first superhero in recorded history as he is demigod who defended his people from threats in 2500 BCE.

Hooded Justice

Hooded Justice, also known as Will Reeves, is a fictional vigilante in Watchmen and the extended DC Comics universe. As the first masked vigilante in the Watchmen universe, Will was a founding member of the Minutemen and paved the way for the rest of the universe’s vigilantes.

He joined the NYPD, but after becoming disillusioned with the pervasive racism throughout the force, he turned to the vigilante lifestyle to ensure justice is served regardless of race. In the comics, his identity was never revealed, nor was his fate. It is hinted that he died, but never confirmed.

Hooded Justice, portrayed by Jovan Apedo in Watchmen (2019), has a height of 5’11” (1.80 m).

The movie was critically acclaimed and upheld as a feminist icon.
