Premise: The story of comic-book superheroes begins during the Depression and WWII years, when star-spangled heroes were in demand. The 1950s saw the genre fall under government scrutiny, however, due to its popularity with kids. Also: the flawed superheroes and socially relevant stories that emerged in the 1960s; and the popularity of superhero films, which began in earnest in 1978 with "Superman."
