Comic-Book Writer Matt Miner explores being a hero for animals in "LIBERATOR"
With the popularity of superheroes in comic books and movies, the idea of what actually makes a "hero" is a constant source of debate. In comics, the answer is often made obvious. The "heroes" wear the most colorful costumes. The "villains" are cloaked in a darker, more sinister palette. Heroes are generally motivated by a drive to work for the greater good. Villains work mostly to serve themselves in quests for riches and power. With the distinction between good and evil expressed in those terms, it's obvious that the super hero is a noble soul. One who fights for the weak and the innocent.
