How to Be a Superhero: The untold stories behind the great movie & television superheroes from the people who played them

How to Be a Superhero takes the reader behind the scenes of the most popular superhero movies and television shows of the past seventy years. The book includes 35 penetrating interviews with actors and actresses who have played the world's greatest superheroes, supervillains, antiheroes and sidekicks, as well as 70 photographs.   A must-read for any superhero fan!

To be, as Chris Reeve put it, 'a temporary custodian' of these stories (myths really) is a very subjective experience. To be taken into the minds and thought processes of others who have had that experience is a fascinating journey. How to Be a Superhero really takes you into what it means not only to the people who play them, but into the minds of superheroes."
  - Richard Donner, director Superman

Mark Edlitz's How To Be A Superhero delivers rare insights into the mindset of the men and women behind the world's most beloved heroes and villains. A supremely fun read."
- David Hayter, screenwriter of X-Men, X-Men 2 and Watchmen

"Edlitz's impressive knowledge of not just superhero movies and TV shows, but of the comics that they're based on, enables him to ask incisive questions that get the actors talking about their super-roles in a way not many interviewers can do. The book is a unique take on the superhero phenomenon."
- Danny Fingeroth, author of Superman on the Couch: What Superheroes Really Tell Us about Ourselves and Our Society
"How to Be a Superhero perfectly captures the convergence of fantasy and reality by documenting--for the first time ever--the thoughts and feelings of so many of the actors who, by their portrayal, have brought these fabled characters to life."
-- Arlen Schumer, author of New York Times pick The Silver Age of Comic Book Art

Review :

"To be, as Chris Reeve put it, 'a temporary custodian' of these stories (myths really) is a very subjective experience. To be taken into the minds and thought processes of others who have had that experience is a fascinating journey. How to Be a Superhero really takes you into what it means not only to the people who play them, but into the minds of superheroes."
-- Richard Donner, director of Superman

"How to be a Superhero makes for great reading, Edlitz's questioning smart and insightful. His subjects play along well, giving considered and equally insightful answers. A cracking read full of great personalities and personality."-- Starburst Magazine"

You don't have to be a die-hard fan of Marvel cinematic universe to appreciate what Edlitz has done here...If you want to learn more about genre that has dominated current zeitgeist, hear hard truths about Hollywood, or just gain some trivia to impress your friends at parties then HOW TO BE A SUPERHERO is right for you."
-- Ain't It Cool News

Edlitz's impressive knowledge of not just superhero movies and TV shows, but of the comics that they're based on, enables him to ask incisive questions that get the actors talking about their super-roles in a way not many interviewers can do. The book is a unique take on the superhero phenomenon and well worth reading."
-- Danny Fingeroth, author of Superman on the Couch: What Superheroes Really Tell Us about Ourselves and Our Society

"This superpowered collection of more than 40 original in-depth interviews explores the role of superheroes in pop culture.... In his impressive debut, Edlitz interviews actors who have played parts in shaping modern America's quintessential mythologies: the superhero universe....  [The author's] lengthy introductions to each interview are packed with enough background info and trivia to please even hard-core fanboys.... Edlitz's insightful questions also explore weightier topics such as religion, mythology, race, and the nature of heroism.... [An] all-out victory."
 --Kirkus Reviews

"I might not be able to ask the fellow closest to being Superman or Batman what he thinks, but Mark Edlitz has, and readers will be fascinated by what he found out."  -- Dr. Jeff McLaughlin, contributing editor of Comics as Philosophy and Stan Lee: Conversations
