What are superheroes all about?
Comic books, television shows and cinemas are filled with them: superheroes are everywhere, and their popularity only seems to be rising. But where do these costumed do-gooders originally come from? Were companies like DC Comics and Marvel the first ones?
Superheroes in ancient mythology
Have a closer look at stories from ancient times, and it will quickly become apparent where superhero authors draw their inspiration from. Superhuman strength is widely known as one of half-god Hercules’ main traits, or what do you think of Achilles’ impervious skin (Luke Cage, anyone?)?
For as long as mankind has been telling stories, there have been characters with remarkable powers, something that sets them apart from regular humans. This is not necessarily a superpower, but is also often something like extraordinary intelligence, or having an incredibly good aim (two traits that Odysseus is known for).
Superheroes have been around for ages, developing from mythology to technology (and a mixture of both). They are greater than any of us, but they have always been human, sharing the same struggles that the rest of us do. Only the stage is bigger.
