Alan Moore’s Rant about Adult Superhero Comic book fans being “Emotionally Subnormal”

All learning has an emotional base.”
— Plato

 

Any Guy who writes comic books and dresses like this, shouldn’t get the right to claim what’s normal.

 

Alan Moore's Werid ass

 

Recently, Alan Moore, Legendary writer behind such works of art such as The Watchmen and V for Vendetta, went on a rant about how adults between the ages of 30-60 years of age are “Emotionally Subnormal” -Whatever that means? Here’s what he had to say:

“I haven’t read any superhero comics since I finished with Watchmen. I hate superheroes. I think they’re abominations. They don’t mean what they used to mean. They were originally in the hands of writers who would actively expand the imagination of their nine- to 13-year-old audience. That was completely what they were meant to do and they were doing it excellently. These days, superhero comics think the audience is certainly not nine to 13, it’s nothing to do with them. It’s an audience largely of 30-, 40-, 50-, 60-year old men, usually men. Someone came up with the term graphic novel. These readers latched on to it; they were simply interested in a way that could validate their continued love of Green Lantern or Spider-Man without appearing in some way emotionally subnormal. This is a significant rump of the superhero-addicted, mainstream-addicted audience.”

OK, Now while i understand his defense on the exploitation of comic books and the culture, He ideas not only categorize fans of the genre but also he criticizes what people take away from it. He also makes up a fictitious disorder. I took the time and tried my best to look up what “Emotionally Subnormal” could possibly mean. My search lead me to the study of emotional intelligence and emotional competence. Emotional Intelligence is defined as the ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions, while, emotional competence is basically the study of self efficacy and caliber of a one’s morals. These two studies usually go hand and hand. Moore also says:

I don’t think the superhero stands for anything good. I think it’s a rather alarming sign if we’ve got audiences of adults going to see the Avengers movie and delighting in concepts and characters meant to entertain the 12-year-old boys of the 1950s.”

A psychologist could prescribe comic books to a emotionally unbalanced child in order to give strong examples of moral support, something a child can identify with. A parent could encourage a child to read in order to reinforce wholesome ethics. From early ages, people have connected superheroes with an infinite symbol of good in the world. Comic books represented that righteousness could always triumph in a world wasn’t always a very friendly place. As a person ages, certain subjects become more of an inevitable reality such as our relationships, jobs, bills, unkind people and even death. But to have the ability to go to the movies and see something that you are not only emotionally attached to, but also entertained by, it could be considered a blessing.

Quick Man Of Steel Review

 

Soooo, my young lovely friend and comic book fiend Sophia wrote this short but sweet review on the Man of Steel. Not only is it informative but it raises questions that i know everyone has had with the recent adaptation of Supes. Tell me what you think ?

So yesterday I saw the Man of Steel and it was fantastic! I was a little worried about this movie because the trailer wasn’t exciting (for me at first) and I didn’t know the actor (Henry Cavill). Also the suit modification, though taking out the red undies was a smart move lol. Anywho, it was a great movie because, well when I say this don’t be alarmed, it was like Skyfall (which I loved) and when I saw that I mean it brought a new tone to Superman, it was fresh and new but still having a classic touch. It was darker, not too dark like Nolan Batman Dark but to reassure this is the Superman of 2013. Christopher Reeve’s flawless 1978 Superman had a lighter tone (nothing wrong with that) but if we were to imitate that (like in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns ugh) it would be a disaster. It’s 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes is ludicrous, the film was not bad it was different in a good way. It had some faults like too many action scenes like tone it down bit and make this scene more about triumph (SPOILERS: like that scene when he destroys that thing that weakens his powers and have a VoiceOver by Jonathan Kent or Jor-El I dunno that would be touching). That was one thing that bothered me but overall this movie was fantastic and totally recommended to anyone! #manofsteel #henrycavill #superman #moviereview
