Did you hear about the cool new superhero, who faced a traumatic experience in their youth and it transformed their worldview and turned them into a crime-fighting vigilante? You probably did, because that's EVERY SUPERHERO. From Batman to Iron Fist to Daredevil and...well, the list is pretty endless. It'd be nice to see a superhero who had a very average, comfortable youth with no major traumas or disasters - but then again, if they were well-balanced people, they probably wouldn't be dressing up in tights and punching aliens.
