Israeli Superheroes

For a country which has legally existed for fewer years than superheroes themselves have, Israel has a pretty good crop of the costumed hero crowd. Not speaking Hebrew (and Babelfish not being able to handle it either), my own ability to research these characters has been curtailed by language barriers until very recently. Now, thanks to the kind assistance of both The Israeli Society for Science-Fiction and Fantasy and especially the invaluable help of Eli Eshed, that gap has been bridged. In addition to details about the heroes listed below (and all the images in this section too), Eli kindly donated two additional articles about Israeli comics as well. One covers Hebrew comics in general, the other is specifically about superhero characters.
