Superheroes in general are the epitome of goodness (even if some of them have questionable morals), and they’re expected to help others with whatever abilities they have. These abilities are typically referred to as ‘Superpowers’, and there are several varieties of them. They can come naturally to the hero-in-question or be acquired through some artificial means. Of course, heroes come in various shapes, sizes, and from different walks of life. Some are aliens from distant planets, some are god-like beings that have taken human form, while others are ordinary humans.
Whether they’re equipped with special technology that’s alien or man-made, or knowledgeable in the mystic arts, or born with some kind of ability that makes them different from everyone else their goal is still the same. It all comes down to a sense of justice, whether it is personal or general. Even the most selfish Superhero can still be considered heroic so long as they have a good reason for doing what they do that’s relatable on some level.
Those who lack morality and kill others willingly can be considered heroes too if there’s some kind of redeemable quality to them, whether it be a tragic backstory or a reasonable goal. So come rate these Superheroes and we’ll determine what your Superpower is!
