The Super Hero Appeal – Forever A Glint Of Fascination
The hero is super, he fights evil and restores justice, he is giving and replenishing, he needs no help. So, who’s your favorite superhero?
The word ‘superhero’ has been forever a glint of fascination, admiration and naturally apprehension. Something out of the ordinary, never seen before, how could not such a thing intrigue? We all loved superman, batman, Spiderman, adored Iron man, even the Hulk but in reality it is and are the children who look up to such personalities. We like it or it not, but we as adults are jaded, too much into the worldly affairs to ever deem these superheroes more than the actors who play them, to think of them outside of theirs films or comics.
They are the children, innocent, young, pure, much like a clean and blank canvas, to be painted upon, their minds to be affected. When they come under such a trance, they live it to the fullest, believe to the fullest before the haze of childhood ends. The hero is super, he fights evil and restores justice, he is giving and replenishing, he needs no help; not only this image is appealing but in a way, it is positive for the younger generation to be immersed in such a figure to look up to, who knows they could be possibly imprinted for good.
Another reason as to why children seem to follow these seemingly invincible heroes is the abundance of time, simple and bluntly put. While their parents intermingle with the world, the children are protected in the sanctity of their home, blanketed by such fantastical worlds of heroes. May it be the quite powerful man of steel, Superman or the dark knight of Gotham city, Batman; all children have had their favorites. Their quick and endless imagination paints a dwelling so perfect that even when they grow out of it with their childhood, somewhere deep down there is still a belief alive.
