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 never asked for this crown. Gold is cold and heavy on the head, but so long as I am the king, I have a duty … If I must sacrifice one child to the flames to save a million from the dark … Sacrifice … is never easy, Davos. Or it is no true sacrifice." - Stannis Baratheon
