Can fictional superheroes provide positive role models in children’s lives?
As a writer and an illustrator I believe characters require a certain amount of depth in order for them to be convincing as well as lovable and memorable. I really love your character and am very interested in what you believe are the most important aspects in the creation of a superhero? Is it the type of power they possess, their reason to fight...?

Can fictional superheroes provide positive role models in children’s lives?
Hi Naif! I also strongly believe that positive role models such as superheroes has such a tremendous impact on a child's life. It really stays in our hearts. I have two questions. 1. Now that our world is transitioning into technology, what's your view on the impact of violent videogame characters, slowly becoming influential role models to children? 2. The portrayal of superheroes is slowly transcending to more violent and darker images. The Batman and Robin of 1966 taught kids about proper grammar, behavior and etiquette. However, the remakes of these superheroes center more on action and violence which emphasize exhilaration, and the "wow he's so cool!" over moral. Do you think it's possible to reverse this trend and re-evolve these characters to the friendly child hood, G rated superheroes of long ago or would that be too much of a climb? Thank you and I hope your encouraging and wonderful cause spreads!
