“Heroism is a lonely, thankless vocation. Poor Spidey. Poor Batman. Poor Harry Potter. Ultimately, each is alone with his powers and responsibilities, burdened with expectations and misunderstood by even his closest friends and allies. Yes, it’s cool to be that special, but the chances to really enjoy it – to turn invisible, to fly through the air, to hand upside down and kiss Kirsten Dunst – are fleeting and few. The reward for being a hero is not fame or adulation but the quiet satisfaction of having done good.” A.O. Scott
