Forget Captain America and Iron Man. Fathers are our real life superheroes! Marchelle Abrahams spoke to a group of children and asked them what makes their dads great.

Who do you call when you’re struggling to take the cap off the peanut butter jar or when you need to get your LEGO set down from the top shelf?

Forget Captain America and Iron Man. Fathers are our real life superheroes! And no one knows this better than their kids. So, in celebration of the one day they get all to themselves, we asked a group of children what makes their dads great.

Jade Kloren, 4

“I like my papa because Papa is my superhero.”

Kale Alexander, 11

“My daddy is my superhero because he helps me with things I don’t understand.
If I could give him superpowers, I’d give him telekinesis and super strength. And I would also want him to be Hulk so that he can possess a superhuman, physical ability.”

Isa Abrahams, 9

“My dad is my hero because he is brave and strong. The superpowers that I would give him would be speed and invisibility. I’ll give him speed because if someone tries to rob me, he can always run fast and save me. Invisibility, because if I get bullied at school, he will see it happening.”

Mayah Hintsa, 3

“My daddy is my hero because he buys me sweeties and chippies.”

Mihle Kasana, 10

“When I am sad or down, he will call me or text me. My daddy loves me more than any other daughter in the world.
“He has extraordinary strength in fitness and stability. That’s why I love my dad.”
