Superheroes do exist in real life and they are out to save the world
Superheroes have been a part of American culture since the late 1930's. From Superman to Spiderman, superheroes have filled the hearts and minds of children and adults alike with feelings of awe and inspiration. Over the past several years, superheroes have become more than just characters in comic books. Conscientious citizens are creating their own superhero personas, putting on costumes, and going out to make their communities a better place. They call themselves Real Life Superheroes.

They are making an impact by doing civic activities, public safety patrols, crime fighting, charity work, school talks, hospital visits, helping the needy, and more acts to serve society.
