Don't get me wrong. I LOVE the anti-heroes: Spider-Man and Iron Man to name a few. How they struggle, they debate, they despair and stop fighting the good fight, until they come to their senses. BUT it seemed as if every Super Hero Movie (since the Avengers--totally rocked, by the way) has had their main character like that, and I was growing weary of it.
|Should I find the culprit who let the dogs out?|
So for me, and my family, Man of Steel, delivered just want I'd been craving: an honest-to-goodness Superhero who saved the day and got the girl. Speaking of girls, MoS's version of Lois Lane is my favorite EVER. Usually, Lois is snarky and biting, and for me, I didn't understand what the heck CK or SM saw in her. This time she was relatable, sweet, brave and got to fight with her man. Or as much as she was physically able. I mean, we are dealing with Aliens here. Aliens with superhuman strength.
Now I want to read a book with a truly good guy in it. No grey hero or redeemed bad boy. Just a truly good guy from the start (and also in his past) to the end. Anyone have any recommendations?
