The Pro Moment – Why Are Super Heroes Nerds? Spider-Man, Flash, Clark Kent – 11.4.15

Today we talked about the need to maker comic book characters nerdy. What’s the purpose? Well, first it makes the story easier to tell.

3. If your character is intelligent, you can have him do more. Spider-Man can do way more than Solomon Grundy can.

2. I think they’d like kids who read comic books to value intelligence over sheer physical strength.

1. The characters are more relatable.

What do you think? One of our viewers suggested that they’re more nerdy because glasses are sexy. I’d really like that to be true. :)
