…Only Human…

We admire superheros, but respect humans.

It is not the stories of perfection that garners respect of the masses and inspires another, it is the human qualities of imperfection, failure, and doubt that contrasts the success and adds depth to the story of one’s ascension. 

With stories like those derived from comics, manga, graphic novels, fiction, and reality, it was not the focus on perfection that made the story so arresting. It was the declaration of struggle, failure, rebirth, and redemption cycled over and over that truly draws the emotional empathy, and correlates that connection with the reader.

Because they are not so far away from “us”, the person/character feels real.
