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.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
