Superhero Dreams to the Rescue So you had a dream about a superhero? Wondering what it means? Well, the superhero is a fairly straightforward symbol in dreams. It just depends partially on your feelings and on what the superhero was doing. In general, the superhero symbolizes the super parts of you yourself. Maybe you are going through a time where qualities you didn\u2019t know you had are rising to the surface \u2013 for the better. Perhaps you are finding new wells of strength, talent, and creativity that you hadn\u2019t used or recognized in the past. Most superheroes have an alter ego, an identity that they use to cover up their super powers. Are you doing this? Most superhero alter egos are timid, quite, \u201cnormal\u201d people who purposely don\u2019t stand out in a crowd or ever do anything worth mentioning. Is this how you view yourself? Your superhero dream may be your subconscious telling you to stop hiding your light, for whatever reason you have done so in the past. It might just be time to let loose and see what you can do. So think about what you were doing in the dream. If you were the one who was a superhero, it might be worth it to take a look at your life and the way you live and see if you can start to recognize some truly special but until now unrecognized parts of yourself.
