Thought up by the staff at Marvel Comics in 1995, the day was established for honouring both fictional and real-life superheroes and has been around for over 2 decades now.
How to celebrate
- Have a superhero film marathon
Why not round up all your favourite superhero movies and have a movie marathon. Think Iron man, Justice League and Deadpool.
Or even better you could celebrate this special day by taking a trip to the cinema to watch the latest Avengers: Endgame move or you could read through your comic book collection.
2. Host a cosplay dinner party
Our favourite way to celebrate is to dress up as our favourite superheroes of course. Why not create a superhero themed dinner party?
Invite some of your most heroic friends and get everyone to dress as their favourites. Of course the options are endless so to narrow it down, you could even pick a theme such as Marvel or DC Comics.
Take a look at some of our best ideas and get inspired.
3. Gather your favourite comic books
And host a book reading club with your fellow comic lover friends.
4. Celebrate your own real life superheroes
Use this day to think about who has been truly heroic in your life and make an effort to express your gratitude in some sort of way. You could write them a letter or bake them brownies; anything to express gratitude is a great way to celebrate.
