Introduction to Geeks
There was a time when a superhero was just that, a superhero and there was no such thing as a geek....of course there were nerds but they had nothing to do with superheroes! Back in the day a nerd was the guy or gal with tape on their eyeglasses and a pocket protector in their shirt pocket. Some of you may not remember those days. Well, evolution took place and nerds evolved into "geeks".
Geeks are people who are different from the mainstream. In many instances they are very smart. Sometimes those who were considered overly intellectual were considered geeks. Geeks come in all sizes, shapes, and varieties....from computer geeks to just plain overall geeks. Most geeks are very good with computers and know a lot about technology...the guy you want to call when you have a problem. Geeks usually stick together and often have their own sense of humor and understanding of life.

Introduction to Super Heroes
It is most likely you all know about Super Heroes, after all if you have never heard of Superman or Batman you yourself must be a cave dweller. There was a time when Super Heroes were relegated to comic books and the occasional TV show, but, motion pictures changed all that. With the making of the first Batman Movie, Super Heroes broke into the big time!
There are male Super Heroes like the aforementioned Superman and Batman, but there are more, like Ironman, Green Lantern, Spiderman, and the list goes on. Don't worry, there are female Super Heroes too. We have Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Black Widow, Storm, and yes, there are more.
Super heroes have a different personality in their super hero form. They may be shy and timid in their human form but take on strength and super-human abilities in their super hero form. Some are born super heroes, others are turned into super heroes through some twist of fate, but they all have a cause to fight for, many, just to save the world, but all Super Heroes have a cause.
If you are a real super hero fan you will know there are on going battles over who is the best super hero. Batman for instance is a successful comic book character, had a camp sixties TV show, has, and had numerous cartoons, and recently had some very good movies. Arguing that he is the best super hero is fairly easy, but he does have competition. No matter who wins that debate it is safe to say that super hero movies are fun, no matter who the star is. Of course, who doesn't look up to a self-sacrificing super hero? Movies or no movies, being a super hero is super!
