Do you want to be a great leader like Black Panther, or perhaps a great warrior striving for peace like Wonder Woman? You can be that and much more without even having the superpowers of Captain Marvel or Spider-Man. 

Remember: What makes you different makes you great. You are more than your mistakes. Protect those who need it. Take care of the planet. And, above all, love and respect yourself.
Each of the 20 lessons is taught by a familiar character and showcased in lively full-color illustration.
Whether you want to be a role model like Superman, control your emotions like Hulk, or stand up to bullies like Captain America, this book is for you. Be you, be better, and learn these life lessons from your favorite superheroes.
