Okay, question number one - it's a "fill in the blank" kind of question.
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound...it's a bird, it's a plane, it's _____________________! That's right - Superman!
That one may have been a little too easy. So question number two - who teaches us that
with great power comes great responsibility? Yes - Spiderman!
Finally, number three. Tell me who this sounds like -
Stop a bullet cold, make the axis fold, change their minds and change the world? This one is a little trickier, but the answer is of course, Wonder Woman!
Ah, superheroes - we are all familiar with them, in part because we've grown up with them. We might even think we know all about them. For instance, we know that they all have some sort of amazing, and often superhuman, abilities. Perhaps it is X-ray vision, or the power of flight. Maybe they are super strong or super-fast, or have the ability to become invisible at will. They have some amazing abilities, which are combined with an agenda that has something to do with justice and fairness. Our superheroes even seem to maintain a moral code which goes beyond the ordinary level of commitment.
