Okay! Just a simple question. Does these super heroes like superman, batman, iron man etc, portrait a good image on our children? Should they actually watch and idolize these characters?

As someone who's watched super heroes as a kid, I never really viewed them as a role models nor bad things. Just pretend.
But I think there is something to be said about over-thinking and undermining a kid's perception on reality.
TobascoNatalie has a point. It would be an interesting introduction to teach kids mythology.

As the dad, I am my kid's role model.

Superman is a cartoon. If your kid cannot tell the difference btwn a cartoon and a role model or "Idol", you might want to look towards his/her actual role models and see what's wrong.
