Comic Books grew up on the rough side of town.  The children of immigrants, Comic Books tried to lash on to the fables of yesteryear and the myths of the ages to get some credibility.  But nobody gave them that kind of respect.  They were considered eye-candy, the equivalent of the boob tube - mindless entertainment and gratuitous violence.  Then Comic Books met Hollywood, and sparks flew.  The romance was fast and furious.  The baby: pop culture.
