In America, people are always finding ways to try to silence things they don’t understand. Right now, it’s religion; before, it was race.
Superheroes are Gods. We read stories of their glory and revel. We bear witness to their losses and mourn. We viciously defend the sanctity of their character against any who would misrepresent them. We attend gatherings with the fellow devoted. We pore over every word that has been written about them so that we may preserve an accurate account of our shared history. We look to their examples for guidance on living better lives.
