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.

Dear Mark Waid,

I love you. This is magnificent. Much like a lot of your Marvel work, you've made me care and see heroes in a new light. Y'know, like real heroes. Please write all of my favorite comics into infinity.

I wonder if Bruce Wayne would agree with her at least a little bit? Though I think he would definitely agree with Daredevil, too.

Frank's not even that cynical. Though he does have the advantage of having fought with and against Captain America.

I think I want to stand on a chair and applaud, long and loud.

Bravo Mr Waid, Bravo.

Motto on the kudos to (the ever humble - see recent interviews) Mark Waid.

My only question is when was Daredevil's costume redesigned by Jim Lee (though he forgot the collar)? Oh, right, Daredevil was rereleased with the new 52.

Part of me thinks this is Waid speaking not only to the industry at large but to his former employers at DC who have retconned so many origins (Ice being the premier example, but to a lesser extent the Marvel Family and then Tim Drake with offing his dad) so that they have a "tragic" motivation for being heroes. Because some people just being naturally GOOD and HEROIC is no longer good enough.

I'm curious about what her response was. Her being a marine, I wonder how she would respond to DD's defense of her own brethren from her own attack.

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.

A toast to Mr. Waid! *raises glass* The world needs more stuff like this.

...It's juice, ok? I'm not going to get tipsy on you. Or break the law by drinking wine before I'm 18.
