Comics Books / Superheroes

May Allah shower mercy on the man who shows me my errors.

"... Spider-man has been swinging strong for 40 years and counting... What other medium can boast a character that has been embraced by so many generations?

Why the love? Because comic books aren't really about superpowers; they're about individuals whose special abilities are always matched by problems that never, ever go away. The supervillains in their brightly coloured tights are ... potholes in the road of life. If the superhero represents anything, it's the resilience of the human spirit. It's not about what he can *do*, but what he can endure..."

Heard of "The 99"? Check this (or 'google' it):
Part 1 -
Part 2 -
Note that it has faced with stern question marks.
