However, a quick look at 21 superheroes to compare their development over decades, shows that couldn’t be further from the truth. Super heroes have matured, become grittier and sleeker. Spiderman of old looks like your uncle wearing a Spiderman fancy dress costume and Iron Man looks more like a villain from Dr Who than the robotic cyborg we know today.
