Every year I love to dress up for Halloween.  this year I have been everything from a Computer nerd to a Superhero.  That got me into the though of what makes a good superhero?  A superhero is someone that we all look up to, someone that makes us believe in something more then we think possible.  For me a superhero has always been my Mom and my Dad.  They despite all the crap I put them through put up with me.

In reading a post by Mitchell Stoker at Maple North who posted about modern day SEO superheros I found it funny how much we look up to all the people that are mentioned in the post. Below are some of the Heros mentioned in the post.  Hope you enjoy!
