History

A superhero is a character who is noted for feats of courage and nobility and who usually has a colorful name and costume which serve to conceal or sometimes reveal their true identities from the public, and abilities beyond those of normal human beings. A female superhero is sometimes called a superheroine, although this term has fallen out in favor in the modern era.

The word superhero originated with Superman, who debuted in 1938, and the stories of superheroes — ranging from episodic adventures to decades-long sagas - have become an entire genre of fiction that has dominated American comic books and crossed over into several other media.
