How can I tell the cousin of my niece that there is no hero?

I mean he really wanted to be a hero like Spiderman. He likes to fly and all but I don't want to dash his dreams because he said he really really like to be one. I suggested to him that he should try karate to be strong and be a "hero" someday but he keeps on asking questions on how to save people...

Most kids usually want to become a superhero when they grow up. Just play along for now, kids like to know that you believe in them and that they can feel good about something. So if being a hero makes him happy then let him be happy. Once he's older, he will realize he cannot be a superhero, but maybe a doctor, or a police man or firefighter, they help people. Just let him be a kid for now.
