Now this is a good example of super hero type. Heck, even a study of all the lettering they did for the comic titles would be an interesting article, especially how it relates to ornate typography of the late 19th century.

The article though, that's a first year type assignment, and I teach Design so I should know.

What about anti-heroes? Do they have corresponding anti-typefaces? Or just longhand?

That's the best part. The net didn't have to cast too far to fill out the roster, if TV-only heroes get included. Yukk is certainly a hero, even if he doesn't know why.
