My mum always gets heroes and superheroes mixed up. For example, she considers Alex Rider a superhero.
Superheroes need stuff like special powers(x-ray vision, super strength, flying and so). Heroes (such as Harry Potter and Dr.Who), have some special powers, but you don’t see Doctor Who blasting Daleks with lasers from his eyes!
The dictionary definition is either someone who is admired for their bravery and their good acts or the main character in a play.
There’s an internet joke which is “Batman always wins”. If you are familiar with it, you know he has no superpowers. He does have gadgets though and wears a special costume. The meaning of the joke is that Batman does research and has a sharp mind so he wins against his foes.
