    Here is what I posted on the Community forum:

    "Hey y'all,
    I have a speech outline due on monday. The topic is "Comics and their impact on Society today."

    I need at least 4 sources (published, not just websites)

    Here is my theory,
    In the last 7 decades since the introduction of the super-hero comic, the medium has advanced and influenced Americans and the world as a whole in ways that the majority of people do not even realize.

    I read somewhere that the number two most recognizable person on the planet is Jesus Christ, the number one? Superman

    I figured on throwing stuff out there that people may not realize comes from comics, Like 300. Almost every college student I know has seen that movie, yet 95% of them have no idea it came from a comic book.

    I guess what I'm asking for here is a little help from all of y'all at the Hype.

    What else should I talk about?
    How have comics impacted or influenced society?
    Changed Pop-culture?
    Any comic form really, it isn't limited to just super hero comics, they just seem the most prevalent."

    Now here is my question, is there anything in particular that for y'all here in the Marvel comics boards really stands out as impactful on society? Anything that has arisen from the DC books that has influenced the media or changed cultural perceptions or the culture itself?
    Any ideas would help, I'm in a class full of people who hate comics and think they are silly and meaningless, I'd really like to show prove them wrong.
