Superheroes on the Small Screen
"A superhero is a person who does heroic deeds and has the ability to do them in a way that a normal person couldn’t," says Stan Lee
, the creative mind behind some of the most iconic comic book superheroes. And whether superheroes exist on the page or get translated to TV, there’s no doubt fictional heroes inspire, motivate and give us hope. So in honor of National Superhero Day (April 28), we celebrate the live-action superheroes who have done good deeds on the small screen.
