Day 6 Encore: Why do we love superheroes so much?
It's no longer surprising that superhero franchises are taking over the film industry. This year alone featured the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America, X-Men, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In March, Brent spoke to Clinical Psychologist Robin Rosenberg, who studies why we love superheroes so much and what they do for us.
She's the editor of Our Superheroes, Ourselves and she thinks there's more to our relationship with the caped crusaders than action figures and fight sequences.
We also hear from Chris Pollak. His relationship to superheroes is closer than most. Pollack is a so-called 'Real Life Superhero'. He teaches martial arts by day and patrols the streets of Brooklyn by night as his costumed alter ego "Dark Guardian."
