Superheroes: The genre born from and exemplifying urban life.  They reflect our modern world by living in a fast-paced environment where crime never sleeps and there's always time for a hero to stand up.

Suburbs: Where dreams go to die because living was too hard.  They reflect our eternal condition of just wanting to take a nap and forget about Becky from work (God, she sucks...).

I know what we should do!  Let's COMBINE these things!  It'll sell better than oil+water!

What's a superhero without a backstory and stats to argue over?  Learn the characters, pick a favorite and chastise everyone who has a different favorite.

Can't have superhero stories without the...y'know...the stories.  Pick a favorite issue, admire the artwork and then feel forever dejected that the movie didn't get it right.
