As you can see on the right of the Google search results are images of Superman and why does Google brings in images for this term? Normally you won’t find images being displayed for long tail keywords but rather you will see images for single keywords like Superman, Spiderman etc.. reason is Google made a study what do people look for when they type in certain phrases like Superman and other keyword terms and they found that when people do a search for a definite term like Superman or Spiderman or whatever it is majority of the people who search these terms looked for pictures of it and they return results for pictures in the first results as well.
