Superhero is a character who is noted for feats of courage and nobility and who usually has a colorful name and costume which serve to conceal their true identity, and abilities beyond those of normal human beings. A female superhero is called a superheroine (although this term has fallen out of favor in the modern era).
The word superhero originated with Superman, who debuted in 1938, and the stories of superheroes - ranging from episodic adventures to decades-long sagas - have become an entire genre of fiction.

- Real name: Resident Evil: Apocalypse is the first instance of the spoken use of Alice as the character's name. In Apocalypse, for a brief moment in the film, a document is shown having Alice's name as Janus Prospero. According to the Apocalypse and Resident Evil: Extinction websites, and a promotional document released by Screen Gems called The Raccoon City Times, Alice is a nickname and Janus Prospero is the character's real name;
- this is never further explored or mentioned in any of the films. In the novel, her name is revealed to be Alice Abernathy, and like Prospero, it was never explored in any of the films.
- Resident Evil, Alice is the primary heroine of the Resident Evil film series. Alice plays the principal role in each film, the storylines all somewhat revolving around her and the struggle with the company she used to work for. In Resident Evil, she is displayed as suffering from amnesia.
- Abilities: Alice's superhuman abilities, as well as the use of various styles of martial arts and gun play have made her an almost super hero style of character and has one "cheering for her instead of wondering how the world she managed to suddenly become Spider-Man." For example, in Apocalypse, after her exposure to the T-virus, she displayed psychic powers and was able to use those powers to kill a security guard with a glance (through a monitor). She also had the ability to jump long distances as seen in her initial confrontation with Nemesis. In Extinction, her powers had developed further, for example, she displays even greater control over her telekinesis.

Fictional Universes: Edit
- Earth-616 In the fictional Marvel Comics multiverse,
Earth-616 or Earth 616 is the name used to identify the primary continuity in which most Marvel Comics titles take place.
This is the earth designation for the universe the Daredevil and Elektra movies take place in.
In the MC2 Universe (aka Earth-982) the Age of Heroes (the boom of super-hero activity generally marked by the first appearance of the Fantastic Four) happened about 15 years earlier on the Marvel Universes' sliding timescale. Pragmatically speaking, this means that most of the events, history, and character history associated with the heroes of Earth-616 happened 15 years before they would have on Earth-616, but the overall political, technological, and sociological progress of the world is exactly concurrent with Earth-616. As such, a lot of the superheroes of the past have either grown up, grown old, or retired, and now new groups, new Superheroines and superheroes are proving themselves in protecting the world.
By this time, Spider-Man has retired, having lost his leg in the final battle with Norman Osborn following the Gathering of Five. Captain America is finally starting to feel his age slow him down, and the Fantastic Four has now become the Fantastic Five. Younger heroes like Nova have become seasoned veterans, while others such as Cassie Lang and Kristoff Vernard have risen to prominence.
