It’s that time again, the leaves are turning brown, red and yellow, the air starts to get its winter chill, and Turkeys are flying of the shelves at the local supermarket. Thanksgiving is here and as we stuff our faces and lounge around watching the big game, we also take time to be thankful. We here at GWW are thankful for so much; mostly for fans like you who are the reason we exist. But I also thought it would be fun it we went around and talked with superheroes to hear what they are thankful for. So I enlisted the help of some of my fellow geeks and we visited all the popular superhero hangouts to chat with them about what they are most thankful for this year. The answers below may surprise you. Sit back and enjoy as your favorite superheroes give thanks on this Thanksgiving Holiday.
