I have noticed a lot of people downgrading comics, because it is mostly filled with "superheroes". What is truly a superhero though? A hero is the protagonist of a story. If that is the case shouldn't any protagonist with powers not of this world be a superhero? When people think of superheroes they think of men and women in tights fighting criminals. While a majority of comic characters that are considered superheroes do fall under that category, quite a few don't fit the description. I don't consider characters like Spawn, Hellboy, Hulk, Silver Surfer, Zatanna, and Ghost Rider "superheroes". They are still are considered superheroes though. If that is case shouldn't characters like Naruto, Megaman, Samus, Goku, etc be superheroes(since they all have super powers and are the protagonists)? Thank you for reading and please share your thoughts.
