    I realize that some of that enthusiasm is about 'plugging' the show, but I still have to pinch myself sometimes when I realize that superheroes are now incredibly cool and that 'serious' actors are genuinely excited and actually proud to be playing them.

    Detonating artillery shells falling on Dunkirk echoed in the distance. It was late May, 1940, my father was only eleven years old. He was in a small restaurant with my grandfather, the two of them perplexed by the French soldier sitting next to them having a feast. The soldier's meal was lavish, far in excess of what virtually all Europeans were used to in those days of rationing.

    My grandfather struck up conversation with the soldier. "Excuse me, but you are using up all your ration coupons on this one meal. What will you eat later if you spend them all like this?"

    The soldier smiled forlornly and explained, "Tomorrow the Germans will attack."

    He would have no further use for his coupons. He had no intention of retreat. This was his last supper.

    For that soldier who died protecting my father and all the rest of us. For all the others I could never begin to name or even know of. For all those who stand the wall. Thank you.

    I have to disagree that the Greek model of heroism is what the modern superhero is powered by. The heroes of classical myth were rarely motivated by ethics -- they were most often selfish and ruled by their passions. The underlying principles that motivate most modern superheroes are very rooted in American cultural ideals: truth, justice, and the rule of law; the responsibility of the strong to protect the weak; self-sacrifice for the greater good; extraordinary beings who treat less gifted people as fundamentally their equals, worthy of respect.

    I corrected the title. I expect no accolades for this.
     
    I also resisted the urge to change the title to "Y Earth more stupidhead!"
    I feel I deserve at least a golf clap for that display of willpower,  perhaps an indulgent "Yes yes, you're very pretty"
