Superheroes are an American phenomenon. Why? Well, sociologists argue about exactly that… some say that since America does not have it’s own mythology (like Greece, Rome, India, or most other older nations) we simply invented one. Others say that superheroes were created to represent American ideals: Captain America represents patriotism, Iron man shows the idolization of rich people and capitalism, and Superman portrays justice. Are the Ninja Turtles superheroes? If so, they probably represent my penchant for junk food…either way, a superhero themed wedding would save the day! Who is your favorite superhero or superheroine?
