Ma is 40, going to 41 in September and she has never touched a comic book in her life. She doesn't even read. When we watched Harry Potter together, every five minutes she would lean over and I had to explain what was going on to her. I've had to do it with both Avengers and IM3 because I knew enough about it at that point to clue her into a few things. She is as mainstream audience as it gets and I guarantee you she will see the tree guy and the raccoon and laugh and tell me that it looks too crazy to be good.
