OK, I was watching the excellent movie Superman Returns, and for somereason felt a question rise up in me...what drives a superhero?
I liked what Bryan Singer did to the Superman movie because he gave me a new childhood love for comics again. I mean when you see Superman taking that
landmass out of earths atmospheare, even though the kryptonite is jabbing into him was amazing. It was that extra push, determined to save the planet
no matter what the cost. In a way it reminded me of the time he died by the hands of Doomsday in the comics.
I know it seems like I am just using Superman, but even if you look at heroes like Captain America, who is now dead in the comics which I don't
understand...I mean he lasted through how many wars? and he gets assinated?...Anyways back on topic, Flash, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and others.
I personally believe that what drives a superhero is the unconditional love tfor either the people, or the planet in general. Its that " I would lay
my life down for these people, or, earth " love.
I was just wondering what you people thought drives a superhero?
