There's something wonderful about a super hero that captivates an audience. It could be the super powers they possess, or the mystery surrounding their identity. Perhaps it's the costumes and masks they wear, or the gadgets they use.
Julia (Miss three-and-a-half) likes the gadgets. She tells me that Batman is better than Spider-Man because he has batamarangs that he can throw to get the bad guys. I tried to tell her that Spider-Man has webbing that he can shoot, but she wasn't having any part of it. "Mum, Spider-Man is for boys", she stated.
I think that super heroes emulate real life, showing us that we're all special in some way. Some of us show our super powers on the outside, and some on the inside. Some are loud, showy powers, and some are less obvious but still very powerful. Everyone has their own special talent that should be nurtured and proudly displayed, just like our favourite super heroes.
Oh, and Spider-Man is not just for boys!
