Many think about becoming a superhero, especially when they are children. Kids may wear masks and capes and run around saying that they’re saving the day, but how can a grown person become a superhero in today’s day and age? Although it may sound hard to believe, not everyone thinks a superhero is someone who wears a spiffy outfit and is fighting crime all the time. Many consider people like Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Gandhi and others to be superheroes, and none of them wore masks but simply tried to help others, which many consider to be the best characteristic of a true superhero.
Those who want to be a superhero can do so, and the article and PR Newswire from Skout will give information on how to become a superhero in the eyes of others. Some people actually think that a superhero can be created by the person simply helping others and being selfless enough to make sure that others are taken care of before themselves. Since many feel that being selfless is a high quality of a superhero, this means that absolutely anyone with a mind to be a superhero can become a superhero in the eyes of others. April 28, 2016, was National Superhero Day, which may have found many celebrating the day dressed in superhero gear.
With superhero movies going in and out of the theaters all the time, many acknowledge superheroes as someone that they not only respect but also someone that they want to be as well. The survey is not only very informative but shows what people really think about superheroes, and it may not be what was typically thought of in the past as a superhero. While many consider Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and Wonder Woman a superhero, it’s possible for a typical person to be a superhero, just by helping other people.
The survey also found that many had an idea of how a superhero should look, i.e. wearing a cape, a ring, a mask, and driving a specific type of vehicle. Since superheroes are obviously popular in today’s culture, Skout is helping nonprofit organizations, such as the Make-A-Wish foundation in the greater Bay Area by donating funds to the organization each time a person sends a virtual greeting with a superhero theme. The greetings can be sent on the Skout network to any person, and each time the greeting is sent, the Make-A-Wish foundation will benefit from it.
