Just as we idolise celebrities, we idolise superheroes. Furthermore, based on theories of social psychology, comics likely impact our levels of aggression, prosocial behaviour, leadership ability and attitudes.

    the superheroes and comics don´t attract much attention to me maybe wonder woman, but it hasn´t had much impact on my personally. thus, the television also influences the educational training of children and youngs, and many times the comics are accompanied by violence, I think they should be more educational and chaneled from a more educational perspective, less violent and bloody and in some cases sexist profiles are observed or with and obscene tendency, which greatly influences the formation of the persons, and which results in possible crimes, since many acts see it as normality, as they are visible in the media and in comics.
