National Superhero Day is observed annually on April 28. This is a day to honor superheroes, both real and fictional.

We all know Batman, Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Hulk and Spiderman. Even though they are fictional, these superheroes are great role models for kids. They serve and protect while fighting evil.

Real-life superheroes may not have super powers or wear capes, but they are also great role models who serve and protect while fighting evil. Military personnel, police officers and firefighters are just a few of the heroes who protect us on a daily basis.

Who’s your Superhero?  Take your favorite superhero to lunch and say thank you for all they do. Post photos on social media using #NationalSuperheroDay.


National Superhero Day was created in 1995 by Marvel Comics employees.
