Who knew that there was such an X-MEN:TAS-friendly day? Not me. Whose heroes are more super than ours? You can go back to Homer and the Bible, and our team of misfits holds its own. Thousands of superheroes have come and gone over the millennia; the best struggle and suffer great tragedy. Compelling interest in larger-than-life myth and legend endures. A superhero’s gotta do what a superhero’s gotta do. Here’s thanks that the heroic ideal has survived all these years and that, through the X-Men, we were able to participate in the storytelling. Happy National Superheroes Day.
