Description by OLDIES.com:

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a complete guide to over fifty years of superheroes on screen! Each entry includes a detailed history, cast and credits, television episode and live-action and animated film descriptions, critical commentaries, and data on arch-villains, gadgets, comic-book origins and super powers, while placing each production into its historical context.

Four appendices list common conventions and cliches of superheroes on screen, the numerous actors who've played various roles, a sampling of memorable superhero ad-lines, and the best, worst and most influential superhero productions from 1951 to 2003.

Mr. Muir's Horror Films of the 1970s (2002) was selected as one of the thirteen "Reference Books of the Year" by the American Library Association.
