Re: Your Biggest Superhero Movie Pet Peeves
A super hero doesn't need to save one particular person from danger. Of course super heroes will save people by virtue of bringing down the villain. There simply needs to be something greater motivating the hero to go after the villain than a damsel. Make it catharsis, make it a vendetta, make it something deeper.
"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
