TORONTO – April 28th is National Superhero Day! It’s observed annually as a day to honour our superheroes both fictional and in real life.
National Superhero Day was created by Marvel Comics employees in 1995. Batman, Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Hulk and Spiderman are just some of the superhero names we recognise. Even though they are fictional, these superheroes are great role models for our children – serving and protecting while fighting evil.
using the hashtag #NationalSuperheroDay Superman Henry Cavill took to social media to wish fans a Happy Superhero Day.
The actor who is busy shooting for his less discussed role in Mission Impossible 6 took time out from his filming schedule to don a superman t-shirt and send out a special message to his fellow superheroes from the Marvel and DC camp.
“Fly your colours today brothers and sisters. Its National Superhero day!” Cavill captioned the photo.
“I personally just want to thank all of you guys and gals for keeping us so entertained and setting such a fantastic example for superhero fans, young and old, around the world.”
