Bookmark and Share
Sometimes it's hard to imagine our parents and grandparents as young people with hopes, dreams and imagination! But as the movie Back to the Future made evident, our ancestors were people too. And they enjoyed a good hero story as much as we do. In fact, they got to witness the founding of the comic book superheroes we see today.

This week, we examine the heroes of yesteryear to see how they compare with today's Avengers. Then we'll select the best heroes of all time, going all the way back to the Victorian Era. And we'll have a draft pick to choose the best team, one we'll call the Victorian Avengers. How do they stack up against today's Marvel's Avengers and DC's Justice League?
