Superhero? All of us have been a huge fan of superheroes right from our childhood, whether it’s Hulk, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Iron Man. These heroes are known as superheroes for their strengths, bravery and the perspectives through which they can overcome their differences between each other and work with each other as a team and serve the humankind.
