Oh, get your minds out of the gutter. This is about comic books. 😉
I ran across this article the other day about the movie wars between Marvel and DC comics and who might be winning. Or who might not be. It was an interesting read. For one thing, I hadn’t realized just how many movies Marvel had put out. They have been seriously cranking them out.
Something in particular, though, popped out at me and made me think of the oft-repeated discussions we romance readers have about the appeal of alpha vs. beta heroes.
Now this is where I get myself into trouble. I was raised on Marvel. To me, DC comics always seemed like goofy throwbacks to an older age in which no one ever died in comics and the heroes were so powerful I could never in any way connect with them. They were Greek Gods to the Marvel Comics Rock Stars, and so Marvel is what I read.
Ahem. Not that I would be comparing Marvel Comic heroes to, um, lesser beings or anything. Hey, the guy who wrote the article put the idea in my head! I swear.
Yep, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 😀
