That is right ladies and gentlemen. It is time to don your capes and masks to do good around the world! According to the National Superhero Day Facebook page 21 years ago today employees at Marvel created National Superhero Day. Interns wore capes from http://powercapes.com/ and wondered around the streets finding out what people thought of superheroes.
Now just because Marvel created the day does not mean you can't celebrate DC or Indie heroes. It also does not mean you have to celebrate a fictional hero. You should also celebrate the heroes that helped you get to where you are today. A Father/Mother that supported you on every step of a long journey, a teacher that never gave up on you, or a friend that picked you up when you were at your lowest. Heroes are everywhere, and today is a day to celebrate them!
