    Yes criminals fear him, that's the point, yet people trust him, and hope he's out there, hence the underlying message is not the same, he subverts it.
    Like Zorro, Batman and other dark knights, before him, by owning the dark theme, they turn it on the villains, and make it a representation of hope.

    Also not mentioned Storm, Black Widow, Blade (movie), Blackbolt, Nighthawk, wear all black.
    At DC Black Canary, Wild Cat, Black Lightning, Blackhawks, Raven...etc.
    Movie X-Men and SHIELD agents wear mostly all black too, these listed and more are all heroes representing good!
    Captain Harlock,
    The Crow Movie.
    Dark Angel TV.

    Always?
    You need to look around, and check again!

    The purest version of the Yin can be found in the Yang, and the purest version of the Yang resides in the Yin.

    King Stannis has a sword that gave off a bright white light while a dude was being burned alive. Yet, he's still fighting the good fight against the Boltons.

    We like to reduce everything binaries. One is always privileged/normalized and the other is abnormal/demonized. Things are more complicated though and more like a spectrum.

    LOL re-reading that ^ again now after the Last Jedi, what Luke achieved, the path he walked and chose to reinvent and bring back the return of Jedi , Now "Last Jedi" really does take a giant dump on everything Luke was and achieved.
    Makes it so he failed, now it's Rey who achieves it? :p

    For me, any colour can represent good, any colour can represent bad.

    I originated two animal splice characters in my story as a “light” and “dark” Seer, with one a pure snowy white albino and the other black-furred, but then I pondered switching them around and having the “dark” Seer be the snowy white one and the good one be the black one, but then you run into the trope of the “albino villain”.

    Yes the creepy near albino look is just as much a villain cliche in pop culture.
    Which kind of disproves the original posters whole point.
