The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Caped Crusaders and Daring Deeds:  A Superhero Dozen

--selected by Kate Quealy-Gainer, Assistant Editor

Faster than a speeding train! More powerful than a hundred men! The summer box office season is upon us and with it, plenty of action flicks and superheroes to get young minds dreaming about what heroic feats – or dastardly deeds – will be filling up those long hot days. We jump on the bandwagon here with our tribute to the wearers of capes and leotards – though we warn them to take Tim Gunn’s advice before making any drastic costume choices.
