56. Valid observation, fairly stated. I'm not an avid fan myself but Lover Boy has gotten me to look

forward to most new comic book movies and Agents of SHIELD. Some comics do seem like trash but there is some high mythology in there.

One character I like is Harley Quinn. She started as a supporting role for the Joker in the Batman animated series. She was Joker's psychiatrist at the asylum but he twisted her mind and made her codependent. She was just a prop upon which his cruelty and disregard could be demonstrated. But fans took an immediate liking to her and she got more appearances until she became a staple. She even has a prominent role in the videogames. Since then she has split away from the Joker and is part of the Suicide Squad sent to fight him. When they confront each other Joker faults her for not being willing to descend far enough into madness but the subtext is she is no longer codependent, having become her own person up to and including being a hero.
