saw a good flick (here's my review) – and the future of superhero films. It will blow your minds today. In ten years you will say this was obvious.

America's wells of inspiration have run dry. We dream of reform but lack the will to act. Where can we find new ideas?
Our dreams of hero-saviors dominate the theaters. But they serve us poorly, pointing to our weaknesses and away from our historic strengths.
