"Superhero fandom doesn't have an age requirement or a limit."
So, if you're interested in joining the superhero fandom at your current age, it's never too early or too late for you.
Here are some classic (and ageless) ways to show support for your all-time favorite superheroes.
1. Rewatch Your Favorite Superhero Shows
Rewatching superhero stuff on small screens is probably one of the effortless ways to show your support for your idols.
Thanks to your Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney Plus subscriptions, all you have to do is chill, sit back, and relax while watching your favorite superhero shows.
If you need more reasons to binge-watch your favorite shows, science has also come to back you up.
A recent Psychology study suggests that replaying your favorite movie scenes can help boost happy hormones.
So, you now have better reasons to binge-watch episodes of Star Wars or the Avengers series.
2. If you’re bored of watching, try binge-reading
Or you can also collect comic books.
Who knows, the comic book you read today might be worth a fortune to you someday!
Besides reading comic books, you can also find your favorite heroes through novels, paperbacks, and online pages.
Regardless of the platform you choose, reading superhero stuff exhibits your appreciation to the writers and staff who created your favorite superheroes.
3. Bring Your Superhero fandom at work
But, remember, you don't need to break workplace rules to support your favorite superhero characters.
If you want to display your superhero fandom at work, the easiest thing to do is wear your superhero shirts.
If you can't do that because of work policies, incorporate your fandom on accessories that you use for work such as your cufflinks, neckties, and lapel pins.
Additionally, your officemates won't probably mind seeing some superhero symbols on your desktop. They won't even care less if you're using some strangepens as long as you do your job well.
4. But, leave the fragile ones at home
Your beloved superheroes have protected the world from supervillains. It's now your turn to protect them from the world.
Whether it's an action figure from a DC comics or your favorite Transformers Autobots, the best way to keep your prized superhero stuff safe is to leave them at home.
In a suitable storage place, of course, wherever that is at your home.
5. Live and sleep with your favorite characters
Keep your favorite superhero symbols within your sight by leaving traces of your superhero fandom on your home decor, say your wallpaper, your lampshade or your furniture.
Meanwhile, if you want to take your superheroes with you in la-la land, wear pajama sets with your favorite superhero symbols.
For extra-sweet dreams, make sure you lie on your superhero pillows or are embraced by your superhero blankets at bedtime.
6. Tag along with your heroes
If you want to always take your superhero fandom with you, use your favorite superhero symbols as necklace pendants, keychains, and accessories.
You can also carry your superhero litpins around. Litpins are not just cute items that add superhero flare to your caps, straps, and jackets. They can also come in handy in case you need some easy cosplay ideas.
7. Play Superhero Video Games
There's no other exciting way to support your hero than being the hero yourself who fight the supervillains, even just in the video games.
Besides, who knows what your fave superheroes are capable of better than a real fan like you?
What makes superhero video games more thrilling is that you'll never expect what happens next. Neither do you expect a superhero crossover such as that of Marvel vs. Capcom's.
8. Spread Your Superhero Fandom through Gifts
A superhero fandom becomes a real success only when it gets more following over time.
Show your support for your favorite superhero by spreading your superhero fandom to the people around you.
Giving thoughtful superhero stuff as birthday presents, for instance, is a good idea to start recruiting (and bribing) people.
9. Follow Your Superheroes on Twitter
Your faves do have Twitter accounts, although not all of them are confirmed.
So, until "IronMan" or "WonderWoman" Twitter handles are fully verified, it's best to follow other people behind our favorite superheroes such as producers, writers, and companies to get updates.
Moreover, you can also follow other fans who share the same superhero fandom with you. Chances are, they know everything you need to know as a fan.
10. Join Superhero Forums
If you're done with Twitter, another way to support your favorite hero is to join superhero forums.
The SuperHeroHype forum, for instance, covers a variety of superhero forums where you can communicate and share your love for your favorite superheroes.
If you want some insider info (aka spoilers) and superhero intel on where they sell the best superhero stuff and whatnots, a superhero forum is the place to be.
11. Be there for your Superheroes
A true superhero fan is always there for their idols.
Hence, when your favorite superheroes are on big screens, show your love for them by buying movie tickets on its first week.
However, don't overdo your support by sharing spoilers online. You have to respect other fans, too.
Likewise, show your support for your favorites by attending Comic Cons and similar fan gatherings.
Come in superhero costumes if you could. There are plenty of easy cosplay ideas online anyway that doesn’t require you going over the top.
Superhero stuff is for all seasons. Regardless of your age, it's never too late to show your love for your favorite superhero characters.
