Heros are too unilateral for nuanced appreciation.

My all-time favorite superhero is the RKO serialized Captain Marvel. While battling two bad guys on a roof, he picked one up and threw him over.

Not all. Then he leaned over the wall to watch and laughed when he hit.

Gotta love a guy who enjoys his work so much.

Short answer, Comics became for 40 something adults, limited runs, expensive (over $6) and "grim and gritty" by pampered writers working from other genres, such as Joss Whedon.

It's a niche bit paid for by Time-Warner at DC (they own DC, it's a sandbox that makes no money whatsoever) and Marvel (make all their money, no kidding comics publishing accounts for 15% of revenue) from licensing to movies and toys.

You'll note that the last popular characters created were the X-Men and various other Marvel types (Punisher, late Seventies). Nothing new for more than thirty years.

A creative failure on all levels.

I happen to know that they've all gone to Patterson, NJ.

I think whiskey has a point. Comics are old hat. The 'graphic novel' gave us comics as high art with a high price tag. We also get to deal with their turgid offspring, movies like Sin City and 300. Do kids read comics anymore? Can they afford to?

Good article and I think The Incredibles does a good job on this topic.
