  Comic book honours US attack heroes
Updated 18 October 2001, 13.50
Marvel hero
Real-life heroes of the World Trade Center terror attacks have been honoured as super-heroes in a special Marvel comic book.

The 64-page poster book "Heroes" features pictures of fire-fighters and police officers alongside Captain America and The Incredible Hulk.

The images have been drawn by some of America's top comic book artists, including Stan Lee, who co-created Spiderman.

World's greatest heroes

Marvel editor Joe Quesada says he doesn't think having them in a comic lessens the real-life heroism shown by emergency workers.

He says the opposite is true: "The goal was to have the world's greatest superhero creators honouring the world's greatest heroes."

Proceeds of the poster book will be donated to charities serving the families of the World Trade Center victims.
