January 11, 2020

  The funny thing about superheroes is that many of them rarely ever intend to become high flying vigilantes — at least, not at first. Peter Parker started out as a regular kid bitten by a unique spider, Captain America began as one of the countless soldiers marching into war and Bruce Wayne...
