The Kid, once thought to be on some sort of migratory movement to the West, has now completed a full circle and has returned to the place of his birth. Birth not in the physical sense of being de...

  • Superheroes Like Superman
    983 words
    Being able to fly, to defeat all the villains of the world, and having supernatural power are just some of the supernatural characteristics of a superhero.
