There is a superhero for everyone. Are you a fan of Marvel and DC, or are you looking for something more? We are going to learn about superheroes of all stripes, create our own, and share them with each other, including fandom discussions, crafts, hot titles in the library, and good old-fashioned “who would win” style debates. What if the greatest superhero we meet… is you?
