Comicbooks can teach us more about humanity then religions
#1
I am a comicbook fan and have always found Superman and Captain America (who are both famous for being boyscouts/goody two shoes) to be more heroic, selfless, etc then the likes of Rama and Arjuna.

The following article is actually about why movies based on comic books should be taken seriously and not dismissed as silly kids movies. But there are some nice bits which I feel illustrate my first paragraph.

Quote:From Superman to Batman, superhero films have much to teach us about faith and humanity – as well as being terrrific visual spectacle, writes Avengers Assemble star Tom Hiddleston

Quote:In our increasingly secular society, with so many disparate gods and different faiths, superhero films present a unique canvas upon which our shared hopes, dreams and apocalyptic nightmares can be projected and played out.

I agree entirely.
Even comics we had when i was a kid like Tinkle had more morally rich stories than the epics playing on tv. Religious stories are usually seen by people with a presumption of being moral.

For me comics had been just for entertainment other than that I learnt nothing else. But some here put comic characters to the real life. In American they adore those characters s real heros. While in ours they are even admired and expect us to follow the path set up by them.
