About This Quiz

Something like a superhero has been around in our culture for thousands of years, going back to spirits, miracle-workers, or deities who people believed took human form and performed great feats of arms. The pioneer of the proto-superhero was Emma Orczy, whose book "The Scarlet Pimpernel" - the tale of an English aristocrat who disguises himself to save people from the Terror during the French Revolution - provides a model for later wealth-and-gadget-based superhero figures like Ironman or Batman.

Then in the early to mid-1900's came Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and the other great writers of the comic book Golden Age, and the modern superhero was born. First came the Christ-like figure of Superman, who remains the most famous name in superheroism, and after him an endless parade of superheroes. 

Some are thoroughly original; some hark to the concerns of the nuclear, genetic, or digital ages; some repackage older myths and legends for the modern age, and more than a few are honestly really derivative and not very clever at all.
