After the sad introduction Morison talks about his time as a police officer. For Morison it all began in 1938 when the first issue of Action Comics came out. He goes on to talk about how he was too old to read them. But he was really interested in them. This first issue brought back memories from his teen years when he would dream about being a superhero. They gave him the idea to actually become one. Morison goes on to talk about how he trained to become a superhero. He would train in the police gym. He first became the "Nite Owl" in 1939. After the Nite Owl many other superhero's began to appear. In the few chapters Morison talks about the success and failure of all the superhero's that were around. They went from preventing crime to not doing anything. Some turned to crime.
This has been the toughest piece to blog about. I have no idea why, but it was. I like the movie watchman and I liked this reading. I thought it was interesting. It showed how big superhero's became after the first Action Comics. It gave people the idea to actually become superhero's or "masked adventurers". This book goes into some detail while describing these superhero's. This blog is not very good. Just saying!
