What is the future for the superhero?

I believe the superhero will continue to be symbolic characters. Comics have been around for a long time and there is no reason that they should die out anytime soon. Superheroes are what young people look up to and that will never change. The comics make the reader love and want to read more. Also, with all of this new technology for making movies, a ton of superhero movies have been being produced in the last 10 years. Superheroes can be viewed as they never could 20 years ago. Just look at the difference between the batman movies from 20 years ago to a couple years ago. The viewer can get a serious view on superheroes and get a sense of what its like to be one. The darkness and horror of being a superhero is portrayed and people like that. The movie the "Dark Knight", portrays this horror especially. It shows how crazy gotham city was and how its hard to be a superhero. In my point of view, this was the best superhero movie made. It really got your senses going and showed the true hardships that batman faced. I think the superhero will not die out anytime soon because of all this new technology being produced that will portray the superhero in a different way. People like different and when it comes to comics, I'm sure there will be more and more people wanting the difference.

While Yinsen is killed, Stark escapes to return to the United States. Like most Marvel heroes, Stark’s power is as much a curse as blessing. As Iron Man, corporate spoke-man for Stark Industries, Stark battles Cold War inspired foes to protect his company and his country. Yet, his condition has not been cured; he must wear his armor chest-plate to stay alive. Iron Man was the most political of all Marvel comic characters. Iron Man was overtly pro-…
