Dumb Heroes Not Wanted

Can we have better heroes and myths than we currently do? At the moment we seem to be insanely grateful when we get a movie or comic that doesn't insult our intelligence. It's great that we have Black Panther, but what should the sequel look like? Another showdown between two versions of the same hero? A costume change? This panel asks all of us as readers and fans to think about whether we've come any real distance since Watchmen and The Dark Knight. Bring your favourite and let's talk: as long as it's something more than "Hulk smash!"
