NPR Summary

World War II is over, the Cold War has begun — where are the heroes of tomorrow? Journey from the end of the Golden Age to the late 1950s, a bold new era for the super-hero. Encounter "keepers of the flame" including Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman, all of whom survived the anti-hero sentiment of the Cold War, as well newcomers like test pilot Hal Jordan and scientist Barry Allen, poised to become the next generation of crime-fighters.
