What makes a super hero a superhero? What would make a superhero the ultimate example of his or her kind? Power, talent, heart, courage, or self-sacrifice?

Also, I will be working live on my (unrelated) mixed media art series, Passengers, as posted on serial/surreal, at the Seattle event Mythical Creatures: Forest of Dreams on October 28, featuring Kalya Scintilla, Desert Dwellers, Whitebear, Sixis, Drumspyder, and more! I’ll have a few books to sell there, some chapter art prints, and who knows what else.
