Although this is not the first documentary of the comic book history that I have recently seen, this is still worth the while, as there are bits of information that I had not seen covered before. It is not completely a repeat of what I had seen either, as this is not as long as the 2017 Superheroes Decoded (TV series Pt.1 and Pt.2), so not as much depth, but with the different interviews and bits of new cultural awareness that it covered, makes it fine documentary on it's own right.
From the coverage on the rise of the superhero, with the introduction of Superman in 1938 throughout the stories supporting the WW II efforts; the changes and decline of the superheroes post war; the bankruptcy of Marvel in the 1990's, to the rise of the superheroes again with commentary on gay and lesbian relations, the fall of the NYC World Trade Centre and land mines.

Hey! If you are someone who really enjoys reading comic books, and graphic novels, too - This fast-paced and equally informative documentary from the folks at the "History Channel" should definitely be of some significant interest to you.
From Superman, to the Flash, to Batman, to the Fantastic 4, and beyond - This 100-minute presentation (of stills, archival footage, and guest interviews) offers the inquisitive viewer a thorough and well-rounded look at the history of comic book superheroes.
Anyway - When it comes to the importance of comic book superheroes - I think that they have clearly played a big part in the overall development of the American/Canadian pop culture scene (as it so proudly stands today). And this, to me, is something that is not to be taken lightly.
