Man Without Fear
I'd like to think I turned out all right. Sure, the line blurs for me sometimes between fantasy and reality, but I suspect that's true for just about everyone. Yet despite the violence and misogyny present in comic books, I took away their most valuable lesson: we are all screwed up in some way, so we must decide if we should use our powers to be a good guy or a bad guy. We are all anti-heroes. And sometimes we get to fight ninjas.
