After re-watching the old episodes, New Hope; Empire Strikes Back; and Return of the Jedi... I just don't see it so great after all this years, I love Star Wars, but the force powers compared to the ones used on the Clone Wars or any other media of the universe games or rpgs or even novels, is poor and badly explored. The fights were not so good. Of course most people argument that Luke had no master and was a self taught Jedi, mostly mimicking his father style, still that is just a escuse.
When I first got into comics it was all about the art, always had a thing about designs, and characters, of as I grew older I started to look for great storytellers as well! But for me if the Art sucks, it's first step no to buy the book.
Let's say I had superpowers in the real world, to come out public, virtually with would be suicide, every scientist would automatically be on me, not to talk about all the governments which would try to recrute me... As a matter a fact if I had real superpowers probably I wouldn't play the superhero game... I'm not saying not to help people, but I'd have the time of my life knowing no one could stop me!!
I'd have to say, Rogue besides the power that resides in her, she's one of the most complex characters out there, her personality has ups and downs, almost like someone deranged, and want she suffers due to her ability or curse like she sometimes call it, never being able to truly fit in society.
I saw the hancock trailer yesterday, it does look great, but can't form an opinion before seing the whole picture. Unbreakable was really good that real life take on the role of the superhero and his nemesis, worked fine. So I've no prob with this kind of movies and projects.
