More about the show:

Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle is the first documentary to examine the dawn of the comic book genre and its powerful legacy. The film explores the evolution of the characters who've leapt from the pages over the last 75 years and their ongoing, worldwide cultural impact.

Among the notable on-camera talents featured are Stan Lee, Adam West, and Lynda Carter, along with Pulitzer Prize winners Michael Chabon and Jules Feiffer. Late greats Joe Simon (co-creator of Captain America) and Jerry Robinson (who helped create the Joker) also are interviewed.
