For a very long time, superheroes have been the definition of what comics actually are. From Marvel Comics to DC Comics and everything in between, most of the comics the world has seen have been based on superheroes. And even though so much has changed as far as comics are concerned, the superhero trope is still very dominant in the comic book industry, making it an important part of storytelling today.

Superheroes have been a staple of the comic book world for decades, and they’ve become an integral part of popular culture. They’re characters that stand up against evil and fight for justice, often with superhuman abilities or gadgets to help them along the way. Superheroes are beloved by many people around the world—not just in comics but also in movies, TV shows, video games, webtoons, manga and more. But who exactly are these superheroes?

Superheroes come from all walks of life: some were born with their powers while others gained them through accidents or scientific experiments gone wrong (or right!). Some use their powers to protect humanity while others may use them selfishly; either way they can be incredibly powerful forces when used correctly! Many superheroes represent morality tales about good versus evil as well as complex stories about identity struggles within our society today.

In recent years there has been a surge in African superhero representation both on-screen and off-screen. From Black Panther to Wakanda Forever!, African cultures have finally started getting much deserved attention from mainstream media outlets like Marvel Comics & Disney+. These new heroes offer unique perspectives on heroism that reflect modern day Africa – one where strength is found not only through physical power but also intelligence & compassion towards those less fortunate than oneself! Additionally, African creators are beginning to invest a lot of time and care in creating African superheroes who not only depict the aforementioned superhero tropes, but who also represent the ideologies and beliefs of the common African.
