Little Boy Super Hero ()

Usually, superheroes (and supervillains) get the “super” from the powers they have. Superman was the first superhero to have superpowers in comic books. He debuted almost 100 years ago in the 1930s. He could run faster than a train and had X-Ray vision! Since then, many more superheroes and super powers appeared.
