Somewhere in the middle of a nondescript village without the even the basic amenities, an individual decides that if things have to change, then one cannot wait for change to sweep in, one must bring the change oneself. And that's how a superhero is born. No super-strength, no X-Ray vision, no ability to fly, no secret cave, no fancy automobiles, no shield, no super metallic suit, not trained in a remote island - nothing exceptional in any form.
Except for a burning desire to make the world a better place.
That is all that matters. That is all that counts. Sure, everyone has their own Kryptonite, that threatens the core of everything they stand for. But ironically, that is also where the superpower lies. To still go ahead and battle one's own brand of Kryptonite and save the world. That is the only superpower one needs.
So, can you be a superhero then? Absolutely. And if you are already making the world a better place, then you already are a superhero.
Although if you wear a cape and a mask while doing it, that will be much cooler.
Here are a few superheroes that we all personally know. And time and again, we might need to invoke them so that they can unleash their goodness upon everyone.
