The American superheroes play an important part inside the American history and they appear in a particular time of that story. The comics publishers publish these adventures during the 1930's after the 1929 crisis when the totalitarianism take the power in Europe. These superheroes have extraordinary powers and both identities for protecting people against foreign dangers. During World War II they fight with the democracies but after the war they will be marginalized because they don't have enemy anymore and also because McCarthy doesn't like them. The American readers specially then teenagers must wait until 1956 and the end of the "comic code" for following again their adventures. At this time a new generation of superheroes arrive with a freedom of speech, new characters and also new values involve by the 1960's political movements.
