Life is tough enough for the parent imagine being the child facing the first day at kindergarten or a new school lifes tough enough.
Well just like the ads on the back of the comic books in the 1960’s telling skinny kids they didn’t need to have sand kicked in their face anymore because Charles atlas could bulk them up, marvel comics has stepped up again.

Imagine halloween this year, your child with hearing impairment can go as a super hero who is deaf or your visually impaired child can be a war veteran with a secret alter ego of a super hero suddenly your job as a parent just easier didn’t it? Below is a list of the newest super heroes that acknowledge that not everyone is perfect physically.

But please remember real heros wear khaki so if you’re child has a prosthetic and needs reassurance that tough guys use prosthetics tell him to check out the wounded warrior website and thank a veteran for all they do.
