Agreed; I think we've come to the point where seeing a tormented hero, or a person who's rise towards becoming a hero is due to some type of tragedy, or unwillingness, of if the protagonist themselves are more anti hero like...is becoming somewhat of a tired trend now.lol
I'd say that it was the start of Burton's Batman that people wanted to see a more edgier and grittier type of hero in contrast to the clean cut image of what CR presented as Superman in the media.
Now, some of us are yearning for the heroes that started the whole hero trend to begin with, and those are the good old fashioned heroes who are just plain good to begin with.
