''For a list of tropes common to the genre, see SuperheroTropes.''

A series where the main character has powers and/or abilities that set him aside from other people. Usually (unless he's NotWearingTights) he is a costumed do-gooder with a colourful outfit (which likely sports a ChestInsignia), a SecretIdentity and often unusual and useful superpowers or equipment. Sometimes he's a loner trying to deal with the hand that fate dealt him. Usually his reason for existence is to defeat his nemesis or arch-enemy the {{Supervillain}}.

Sometimes the show focuses on a [[SuperTeam team or other grouping]] of powered individuals.[[TropeMaker The original]] modern [=superhero=] is arguably Radio/TheShadow (first published April 1, 1931 in ''The Shadow Magazine'', seven years before ''Action Comics'' #1 introduced Franchise/{{Superman}}). Though he did not initially have have super powers other than being a master hypnotist, he gains psychic abilities beginning in 1937 that let him induce [[http://www.bmoviecomic.com/index.php?cid=53 psychological]] [[http://www.bmoviecomic.com/index.php?cid=54 invisibility]] in the radio series. He was inspired by previous fictional adventurers and crime fighters, such as Franchise/{{Zorro}} (who may be the UrExample). In turn, he has inspired many future superheroes, most notably Batman who was an {{Expy}} at first before being differentiated into how he's currently recognized.

The first ''comic strip'' superhero would have been ComicStrip/MandrakeTheMagician (June 11, 1934) and the first spandex-type costumed Super Hero is arguably ComicStrip/ThePhantom (first published Feb. 17, 1936), who wore a skin-tight purple outfit with a mask. Culturally the [[TropeCodifier concept was crystallized]] by Franchise/{{Superman}}, who remains doubtlessly the world's most recognized superhero. From there the concept was [[FollowTheLeader repeated]] numerous times, eventually spawning the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica which was the first superhero team.

Note that not all [=superheroes=] are super-powered; Franchise/{{Batman}} is often considered a [=superhero=] despite having nothing but training, intelligence, willpower, minor gadgetry and the writers on his side; Phantom was in peak physical fitness, had excellent reflexes and was a sharpshooter. They are generally considered superheroes, partly because of the costume. In trope terms, they go under NonPoweredCostumedHero.

Sooner or later, all [=superheroes=] have an [[SuperheroOrigin origin story]]. If the series lasts long enough, the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil will introduce the bigger threat of a [=Supervillain=], possibly an ArchEnemy. If the superhero fights enough of them [[RecurringCharacter often enough]], they may gather a RoguesGallery.

Superheroes are ''not'' limited merely to comic books and their derivations. ''Literature/{{Gladiator}}'', ''GoldenBat'',''[[http://www.animevice.com/prince-of-gamma/18-31482/ Prince of Gamma]]'', ''Franchise/LoneRanger'' and ''Franchise/GreenHornet'' predate all comic format Superheroes, and ''Series/KnightRider'' or ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'' are television examples partaking fairly little of the comic book medium. On Japanese television though, the tokusatsu has a long and proud tradition of superheroism most famously Franchise/{{Ultraman}} and Franchise/KamenRider serving as the national image of superheroes. Thus, {{Anime}} is also chock full of super heroes from Manga/AstroBoy to Franchise/SailorMoon. {{Sentai}} and MagicalGirlWarrior are two Japanese genres that are an outgrowth of this. Not to mention SuperRobot, which is a [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever gigantic]], [[HumongousMecha armored]] variant of the superhero.

In a broader sense, superheroes can be considered old as the superhuman heroes of ancient mythology, with [[TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]] being the UrExample. Other examples include {{Hercules}}, {{Perseus}}, [[{{Mahabharata}} Krishna]], [[{{Ramayana}} Hanuman]], and [[JourneyToTheWest SunWukong]] (a.k.a. [[DragonBall Son Goku]]).

In some continuities they may be called [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual something other than superhero]], but they're usually still recognizable as such. See also SuperheroPrevalenceStages and StandardSuperheroSetting.

See also TheCape, StockSuperpowers, FormFittingWardrobe, and of course the MostCommonSuperPower. The exact opposite would be the UnSorcerer.
