Comic books are an old medium so quite a few characters have a strong legacy. Some heroes have such a strong legacy that other individuals have taken up their mantle and continued the fight in their honor.
Superheroes are much more than people just running around beating up the bad guys. Each hero embodies different values that represent some of the best facets of humanity. Kids look up to superheroes for their values, not their muscles. When a hero stands for something, certain people will adopt that value as their own and continue their fight. Most superheroes are mortal and as a result of that will have to end their heroic careers at some point in the future. But if they are able to develop a legacy someone else wants to preserve then they can rest easy knowing the good fight will continue.
