Superhero of 2020
Who does the world need now?
Did you know that Wonder Woman was created during World War II, and the X-Men were inspired by the Civil Rights movement? It’s no surprise that some of the most challenging periods of modern history gave rise to our most enduring and beloved superheroes. Superheroes often operate in an oversimplified world of good vs. evil, but they also demonstrate clear purpose and sacrifice. Special abilities aside, superheroes teach us how to be better humans ourselves.
Dear writers, what superhero does the world need now?
