It should come as no surprise that the US post Office that has Spidey swinging over traffic as a symbol of its speedy delivery seems to like superheroes.

The stamps will be “Forever” denomination — Although worth 49¢ now, they will always buy first class postage for as long as we have that service. The stamp sheet will feature eight designs covering the range of Batman ers, from long-eared Jerry Robinson to high tech New 52.
