The first episode in a series of three one-hour programs and a companion website on comic book heroes as reflections of American cultural values from 1938 to the present.

"Superheroes!" will be the first public television documentary film series to chronicle the extraordinary characters that leapt from the pages of comic books to conquer the world's imagination. This three-part series explores how these "disposable" ten-cent graphic narratives, originally aimed at youngsters, exploded out of the Depression era and evolved into a modern American mythology and a multi-billion dollar entertainment industry.
