If you happen to need to be rescued by a superhero this Halloween, you won't have to look far to find one. Because of the release of "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Avengers" blockbusters during 2012, superhero costumes, historically hot among kids, are absolutely on fire this year. Here are what some of this year's offerings look like. They can be purchased online, in pop-up Halloween stores and in department stores such as Target, Kmart and Walmart, and other stores in the area.
