  1. What I’m hearing here is that (many) superhero movies don’t really let the heroes risk anything. Tony Stark’s money will make it all better, or Peter Parker is never really in that much danger, or Thor is always obviously going to find his hammer because duh. Agree/disagree? I’d say superheroes are at their most relateable when they’re most vulnerable, because none of us are ever invulnerable, but we are all always taking risks.

    (How much use do you think you’re going to get out of a Windex tag? Genuine curiosity here.)
