Comic books are a popular medium for comic book enthusiasts for more than 70 years. Comic books of the 21st century look very different from those that were created nearly 100 years ago. The industry is more mature and the characters are better developed. The villains and superheroes are now more vicious, and their relationship has improved.
Comic books from the 21st century feature more complex stories. Sometimes subplots can be incorporated into the story so that when an unforeseen event occurs, you will be aware. Hollywood is delighted at the sophisticated comic book industry. When a comic book hero is made into a film, mainstream society will devour it. Although there were television series, movies and serials that attempted to portray costumed heroes, they did not do justice. It took some time before technology was able to recreate the comic-book hero. In comic books of the 21st century, readers can read and visualize the story and then view the big-screen version to see if they have the same perspective as you. Even though I thought the movie was wrong, I was often delighted by the experience.
Comic books are also considered to be the demise of superhero characters in the twenty-first century. Heroes can be killed or injured in today’s comic book world. While the demise of a hero doesn’t last very long, it can be a lengthy one in comic books. Writers and artists seek to be realistic, but this is not the case. You feel the death of a character when they die. You feel betrayed. The villain can be resentful but it is temperated by the wisdom of the prevailing heros. They knew what they were doing when they donned the costumes, and the writers and artists were equally attentive. Sometimes you might feel like you were there when it happened. In comic books that include injuries, a scar or other feature is added.
As the years passed, comic books changed the look of heros. While characters are not generally affected by age, some have seen their looks change. The comic book industry also changed the appearance of the characters. Another artist may have taken over the role of villain or hero. Maybe a refresh was required because his or her hairstyle or costume looked out-of-place. Many characters have lost their identity over the years.
No matter what the case, comic books will continue to evolve. I am glad that comic books have been updated to avoid stagnation. Comic books of the 21st century are what keep me reading them. As a boy, I was captivated by comic books and would read them in bed. As an adult, I still find myself captivated by them. The messages may be different in content and design, but they are the same.
