Who are the real Superheroes?

We’ve all seen Batman and the Justice league meeting, the Avengers assembling the X-Men uniting and the Fantastic Four banding together (we’ve even seen the Teen Titans Go!) but we are starting to ask, who are the real heros? All of these costumed vigilantes are fine at fighting crime (and even then, not always that good) but what about the day to day stuff. They get all high and mighty about what their powers can do but can Martian Manhunter fix a leaky tap? I very much doubt it.

The real heroes are those of us that can fix things, maintain things and generally look at a problem and solve it without any need for Batarangs or invisible Planes. Take for example a Gloucester Plumber like http://www.hprservicesltd.com/emergency-plumber-gloucester/. Whilst they might not arrive via self powered flight like Superman they will actually fix the issue when they arrive as opposed to melting it with laser eyes (which they also do not have).

After everything that has happened recently perhaps it is time that we re-evaluated who we actually should be celebrating in society rather than keep banging on about how Thor’s magic hammer can smash everything or that Bruce Banner is a tortured soul. Fun and diverting as they are, perhaps some other of society’s heroes deserve a turn in the spotlight.
