National Superhero Day and Why More People Should Celebrate it

National Superhero Day will take place on April 28th this year and I think that everyone should know about the day dedicated to some of our favorite fictional and real-life heroes.

I like many kids grew up reading and watching superhero media; from Batman to Spider-man I loved all of it. These characters are the foundation to my childhood and many others so I’m glad to say a day dedicated to it but I realized that not many people know about the day which saddens me as I think these characters deserve to be celebrated by everyone. I remember waking up in the morning and running to the TV to see if Batman: The Animated Series was on as it was and still is one of my favorite interpretations of the character.

National Superhero Day was created by Marvel Comics employees in 1995 when they asked interns to ask the public who their favorite superheroes were and what superpowers they would want. The holiday has been celebrated by comic gurus ever since but should be celebrated by everyone.

Superheros are probably the biggest they’ve ever been with blockbuster superhero movies being a dime a dozen these days from big comic companies such as Marvel and DC. Many people can name at least one superhero from the movie universe of Marvel as they are some of the most successful movies of the year. Avengers: Infinity War is the highest grossing superhero film of all time.

So make sure on April 28th you spread the word that it is National Superhero Day, ask a few people who’s their favorite one, and finally go to your local comic store and buy a few comics.
