In America, we’re blessed to have hundreds of superheroes who protect us and make the world safe for democracy, not to mention idiocy. They’re everywhere. In our television sets, our movie theaters, our lunch boxes and Times Square, as they engage in the never ending struggle against evil.
When our way of life is threatened by, say, Iran, the Joker or illegal aliens from another planet, we can turn to Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, Ant-Man and Birdman. Or to the X-Men and X-Women, the Avengers and Revengers, Nightcrawler and Wolverine, Ironman, Iceman, Emma Frost, Beast, Black Panther, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, the Wasp, the Tick, Captain Marvel and Captain America.
