On the way home tonight, whilst listening to the radio, there was an interview of Ian Rankin, a Scottish crime writer on his latest novel, Standing in Another Man's Grave. When the radio presenter read out emails/texts from the listeners, one praised the book for making the main character, Rebus feel like a real person who made mistakes rather than a "wholly unrealistic superhuman." Now this criticism may not reflect the listener's views on comic books and the superhero genre, but it is a common misconception made of comic books. Especially in these recent years, comic books have been all about characters with distinct personalities, personal issues like work and romance problems and relationships with friends, family and a significant other. The abnormal, sci fi, cosmic or mystical adventures these characters experience is just part of their charm. Without good character dynamics to add to the story, comic books would be all the more dull for it. So do you Viners think people make this judgement of comic books a lot or am I making a big deal of things here?
