Default Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle TV series

Episode Synopsis: The story of comic-book superheroes starts during the Depression and WWII years, when star-spangled heroes were in demand. The 1950s saw the genre come under government scrutiny, however, due to its popularity with kids. Also: the flawed superheroes of the 1960s, and the socially relevant stories they often found themselves in; and the popularity of superhero films, which began in earnest in 1978 with "Superman." Liev Schreiber hosts and narrates.
Be on PBS tomorrow at 8 pm Oct 15 (eastern time)

Looks like it's a 3 part series

Just finished watching this 3-hour special. It was excellent! Definitely a must-see for all superhero fans.

Clark Kent is Superman's critique of the entire Human race.

I write for this talent agency's blog. Read it, 'cause it's awesome:

I just love PBS. Great program. It's amazing how much the industry has changed, but the heart of it remains the same. We get so caught up in the little things of here and now. This makes you look at the big picture and appreciate all the people that have helped bring our modern mythology into the world.
