There are those among us who were born to protect the rest of us. That is their talent, and they are born with innate abilities and strengths that enable them to perform in such a manner. However these abilities are not so exaggerated as those attributed to comic book superheroes, and yet I believe it is these very people upon whom those multi-colored, newsprint fantasies are based. And by the way, they do wear costumes of a sort, some are policemen, some are firemen, some are soldiers and there are a few who are less noticeable, and who really aren't aware themselves who they are, and yet when the time comes for them to perform in a heroic manner, something inside them wakes up and kicks in, so that they can rise to the occasion. Like a mechanic who inexplicably lifts a car off his buddy when a jack fails. But caped and cowled people who can throw an automobile 30 blocks, turn invisible, stretch like a rubber band, fly without the benifit of an aircraft and run faster than a Lear Jet can fly, are fantasies (albiet, based upon reality as aforementioned).
