Toward the end of the Great Depression in the 1930s, comic book superheroes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Captain America made their debut. They grew in popularity; and today, during an era that is beginning to mirror the hardship of the '30s, they continue to win big with movie audiences (Douglas Hyde, "Superheroes Rise in Tough Times,", March 20, 2009).

When times get tough, everybody wants a hero. However, it's important to rely on a hero who can actually save people. The name Jesus means "Savior" and there's a reason. He will save the entire planet one day soon.
