Superhero – a character in a film or story who has special strength and uses it to do good things and help other people.
This definition sums up our most revered heroes quite well. The word ‘superhero‘ dates back to at least 1917 with the well-known Robin Hood. We were introduced to Superman in 1938 and he has remained one of the most recognisable characters over the years, paving the way for a whole new genre of superhero.
They serve and protect us while fighting against evil and risking their lives for us, so what better way to honour them than with these super movies? Here’s a selection of superhero movies you can find on Fetch that will be at your rescue during the winter months. (more…)

If you’re not a fan of reality TV, chances are that you might prefer your stories with a much cleaner divide between good and evil. If you hadn’t guessed already, we’re talking about super heroes: straight from the pages of novels and comic books, they’ve been coming to life on the small screen thanks to CGI and a broader market of television networks.
While it’s hard to say no to an action-packed blockbuster at your local cinema, a TV series gives us enough time to get to know the characters and in many cases, see them get to know each other. So while you’re getting your latest fix of Game of Thrones or Preacher, we’ve scoured the internet for all the latest news of superheroes to bring you a choice selection of shows that you should definitely add to your “to watch” list!
