For decades, following the various stories of comic book and movie superheroes our imagination has been driven to other galaxies. Although most frequently we associate superheroes with Hollywood movies, it is always worth to remember that they also live between the legends of our nations and the pages of history.
While superheroes are often fictional, they also can show our human side, true nature and deepest thoughts. We love the stories of superheroes because we want to identify with them, they are not only entertainment but also a new way of motivation how to be the best version of ourselves.
