Thoughts about Heroes

Why are there no super heroes with disabilities?
 
  07 July 2018
Before superheroes came along, most heroes were natural types. Flash Gordon, Tarzan, Doc Savage, Conan.

Superheroes usually gained powers through science or magic, and a number of them were in some way flawed to begin with.
Superman was an alien who got weak if exposed to kryptonite.
Captain Marvel was a kid before magic.
Captain America was a 90 pound weakling before science.
Batman was self-made, but it was a childhood traumatic event that caused his purpose--Zorro was self-made and chose to fight injustice as an adult.

There aren't too many that are not aided by magic or science in the 1940---onward era. James Bond would be one, maybe Hawkeye or Black Panther in their original incarnations.
