The word ―Hero‖ has always been a conception regarding power and justice in earthling’s eyes. It’s not difficult to figure out that any country with a profound cultural background and centuries-old history has some heroic epics. These countries idolize the one who has the courage against the evil and shows mercy to the weak. Being passed down from generation to generation, historical events, even folktales have transferred into heroic legends. As the years go on, times has endowed the word

―hero‖ with different connotation.

However, the earliest movie that adapted from superhero comic is Captain Marvel which hit the big screen in 1941.

Even though these movies never achieve a breakthrough in its plot and always follow a typical Hollywood story line. The ―superhero fever‖ has swept whole world and caused a heated discussion in the society.
