The term, "superhero," almost invariably conjures images of Superman and Batman, Spider-Man and Captain America; but in the mid-80s, the rise of independent comic book publishers introduced a cadre of superheroes who challenged, and often broke, the stereotypes established by the mainstream publishers.  Some of these were revivals of strange heroes from the Golden Age of comics, and others were entirely new and original interpretations of the classic superhero archetype.  Forget what you know about superheroes and explore these alternative creations.
