15 Action Heroes From Our Childhood Then and Now


We live in the age of superhero media. Today’s kids have hundreds of role models to choose from: Captain America, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Wonder Woman, and the list goes on. Best comics, best movies and TV shows, and what’s more importantly, awesome characters! But I still remember the 90s’ when kids were arguing over who’s stronger Rambo or Terminator, or which one of the TMNTs is a better fighter. All in all, it was a great time to be growing up and today we’ll refresh some of those slumbering memories.
