National Superhero Day
April 28 marks the day the Marvel and DC Universe gave mankind reliable protection from global evil in the face of people with superpowers. Celebrate National Superhero Day and remember your favorite comic book character. Usually, heroes manage to prevent global catastrophe, defeat insidious enemies, and restore justice.
The first superhero received artistic embodiment in 1936, and was called the Phantom. After 4 years, a heroine with outstanding abilities appeared, named Phantom Lady. In 1962, Spider-Man came into the world; in 1978, Superman. The holiday was founded by Marvel in 1995, uniting the two cinematic worlds’ fans.
How to take part
Villains are not honored on this holiday, but without opponents, heroes and their glorious exploits would not exist.
- Invite friends to a party. They must appear as superheroes. Laughter and cute photos are guaranteed.
- Review your favorite movies for moments that escaped notice the first time round.
- Read the description and origin story of your favorite superhero. Perhaps they have a hidden superpower, manifesting only in combination with other actions.
This holiday has evolved. In addition to honoring fictional superheroes, congratulations are given to real heroes: soldiers, doctors, rescuers, firefighters, or the neighbor who removed a screaming cat from a tree.
