Why superheroes leave me cold
Superheroes are dumb. Not just some superheroes — all of them. The entire concept of grown men and women fighting evil while wearing highly technical pajamas fills me with boredom. I realize this renders me un-American and out of step with everything that is holy and profitable in the ruling zeitgeist. The theatrical release this coming Friday of “Marvel’s The Avengers” will prove how wrong I am when it grosses more than the GDP of South America. I remain unimpressed.
