The best heroes are defined by tragedy?



A little over a page from DAREDEVIL 11, the finale to the "Omega Effect" crossover.

Daredevil has a chat with the Punisher's new partner.

Some of this reminds me of what Greg Rucka wrote last August.

(Pet peeve time: for the contingent out there who sneer at heroes like Superman and Wonder Woman and Captain America, those icons who still, at their core, represent selfless sacrifice for the greater good, and who justify their contempt by saying, oh, it’s so unrealistic, no one would ever be so noble… grow up. Seriously. Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters.)

Nope, better have some murdered loved ones as motivation.
