When my 9 yr. old was 2, he used to put on a spiderman costume and jump and spin "webs" all over the house! It was the cutest thing! Now that he is older, he will play with his brother and they will play video game "heroes".

My My son and daughter pretend to be Batman and Catgirl (My daughter doesn't realize that catgirl is a villian), and they tell me all the time of their adventures fighting Joker. They claim to have a secret bat cave in the house, and fight Joker at night when I'm asleep. My daughter even has an invisible wrist phone so if she is busy with the family and cannot fight she can call on another superhero to fight Joker for her. Too funny...

Yes my son and his friends love to play super hero games. He is five and a half now but has been playing super heros imaginary games since he was three. All of his friends love it, one is Batman, then Superman, Green Lantern, and the list goes on and on.
It is great to have heros, it gives them great imaginary play time. I encourage it except at certain events. Like the local Easter Egg I was annoyed all the boys tried to start with it.
He is very very imaginative.

Yeah all the time! My brother is a big comic book fan so he comes over and plays with the kids all the time. They love it and it really gets their imagination going. I would much rather have my kids reading comic books than watch some of the stuff on television these days. Two thumbs up.

My two year old isn't so much into the super heros as he is into wrestling. I think he gets that from his dad. He can tell you any wrestler and lives his week by Monday night Raw, Thursday night TNA and Friday night Smack Down.
Don't get me wrong, he loves watching Wonder Pets, Dora, Diego, and Fresh Beat Band.. and can name pretty much everyone of the character and sing any of their songs.. but something about wrestling has his attention more. The only thing I am very thinkful for is that he doesn't try wrestling moves on anyone but his dad. Though if you will listen he will talk all day about the characters, who they are, and what moves they do and he's only turning 3 in June!

My 5 year old likes playing super-hero games. It broadens his creativity and imagination. It also gives them someone to look up too and can teach right from wrong. Just make sure they know it's a game.

YES there is actually ban from string because of them pretending to be spiderman! They pretend other characters like x men n fantastic four. They love all marvel comic heros but when I hear them pretending to be spiderman I start to panic! There goes the window blinds and footprints on the walls! Luckly this doesnt happen that much since they were introduced to transformers :)

My daughter doesn't very much, she just wrestles and plays princess but my son holds his hands out and makes vocalizations of webs coming out of his hands. He even bends the same fingers and holds his hands like Spiderman! He loves watching all of the Spiderman movies, he's our favorite, too!

This is going to sound odd but my boyfriend still actively collects comics and can tell you anything you want to know about any super hero. My son is only 8 months old and is already started to become the same way...he can't so much play the games right now but he LOVES watching Super Why! on PBS and his dad bought him Superhero Snakes and Ladders for when he's older.

Yes - my son always wants to be made into an eagle. not exactly sure where he got it from but he puts his cape on and i tape some cardboard wings and a beak on him and he's off. it's pretty hilarious.

My 9 year old loves everything to do with superheroes! He has an Indiana Jones outfit he wears all the time, and hes always telling me all about batman as well. He also likes to talk about how cool he thinks it would be if people like Batman and Spiderman were real.

My grandson is always some kind of superhero, he runs around imitating them pretending to fly run jump, fight ,climb, like spiderman, superman, batman and astroboy and so on and so on.....it is so funny . I love his imagination!
He has a batman costume he loves to wear and spiderman pajamas and bed set and little batman sleeping bag. He loves his transformer DS game and superhero movies..He is just so amazingly cute.
