Since April 18, 1938 (when Superman made his comic-book debut) to May 1, 2015 (the current projected release date of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”) and beyond, the image of the superhero looms large in the American psyche.

“Superheroes are American gods. They’re American mythology,” says Geoff Johns, chief creative officer at DC Comics, in the introduction to “Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle,” a three-part series debuting 7-10 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, on Eight, Arizona PBS.
