Superheroes in Our Midst – A Book Review

February 5, 2021

Superheroes in Our Midst: Are we ready for some public-minded vigilante crime fighters?

The Rise of Real-Life Superheroes — And the Fall of Everything Else
by Peter Nowak (Madeira Park: Douglas & McIntyre, 2020) $24.95. 

The slogan “Defund the Police” became popular in 2020 as thousands of people protested the killings of George Floyd, Briona Taylor and other African Americans. The outrage included a call for community policing across the United States. For author Peter Nowak, the protests also might have sent a signal to dozens of secret organizations of real-life superheroes, masked men and women with capes flying who are ready to defend society and restore public safety.
