Superheroes Unmasked: The Verdict

By | Sunday, July 09, 2006 Leave a Comment
I watched Superheroes Unmasked this afternoon, and I do recall seeing it when it came out. I was somewhat disappointed with the show's description, as it implied that there that the show would delve more deeply into the cultural mores that inspired them. That's not to say the show didn't touch on it at all, but I would've liked to have seen something perhaps deeper but not as broad in reach.

But perhaps that's too much to expect from a mainstream documentary.

One thing I did like in the re-viewing, and that I recall went over well with The Wife when she saw it a few years ago, was Frank Miller's line about giving Batman his balls back. It's a bit of freshing candor about the state of the character prior to The Dark Knight Returns.
