Folktale Superheroes Around the World

Superheroes Around the World

What do China, Africa and South America all have in common? Superheroes!!!

Long before the Superheroes of today, people all over the world used their SUPER IMAGINATIONS to create folktales about creatures and people with extraordinary powers. Anansi the entertaining Spider God from Africa has web-spinning adventures just like Spiderman. He captures a leopard, hornets and the snake that swallows people so that all the stories in the world can be set free. Ninja Turtles have nothing on Jabuti the flute-playing tortoise from the Amazon rainforest! He saves the other rainforest animals from a giant monster while teaching the audience how to dance and sing. Tian, the Lord of the Cranes from China, gives to the poor just like Robin Hood. Celebrate our common love of story with these exciting and engaging multi-cultural tales.
