“It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman!”
This is one of my favourite quotes from the movie ‘Superman’. Superheroes have always been an important part of my life. Their cool fighting styles, high intellect and incredible moves have got me obsessed over them. They have taught me many important life lessons. Whether it is the comics, movies, TV shows, short films, they are all important to me.
In our world also there is a lot of evil. From petty thieves to heavily armed suicide bombers. Listening to stories about terrorists destroying massive buildings and killing millions just makes me want superpowers, something like flying or running with super speed or just holding powerful tech and defeat enemies with it.
Just being lost in my world of imagination soothes me. Creating imaginary fights between different superheroes just keeps me occupied for hours. What if Batman fights Ironman? What if Wonder woman goes against Thor Odinson? Such a world is so exciting and incredible!
Even in the late 1900s, superheroes like Phantom and The Spock took over the world. In early 2000s, there were Luke skywalker and Batman and today we have Spiderman and the Wolverine. I am sure in the near future we will have many more superheroes whom we will adore. The superheroes have left their mark in ways that leave us spellbound, from fighting in the outer space to time travelling.
When I return to my real world, I realize that even though superheroes don’t exist for real, they will always be in our heart. They were with us, are with us and will be with us forever.
