It shows that together even more impossible feat may be accomplished if we work together. It also has the "feel good"aspect popularized by classic hollywood to it. Viewers are left feeling like in the end everything worked out for the best. Superhero movies in general are sucessful because of the experience the viewer has while watching them.

A super hero movie is a film, usually science fiction, that is focused on the actions of one or more superheros who usually possess super natural abilities relative to a normal person and are dedicated to protecting the public. The film generally includes when where and how these super heros rose to power and explain the relationship they have their evil arch rival and or love interest. There is usually an epic battle between the two with the hero coming out on top. What makes Superhero films sucessful is the enviorment the viewer is placed in.
