THE TWO SIDES TO A GOOD HEROIC STORY

Below is the brilliant early poster for the movie “Logan” that will premiere four-and-a-half months from now.  The simple image of Wolverine’s battered, clawed hand holding that of an unseen child is perfect.  We need to see our heroes fight; we need to see them struggle to prove themselves worthy.  Both are exhilarating.  But “struggle” to what end, for what purpose.  The second hand answers that question.  In X-MEN:TAS, as in all super-hero series, personal realtionships, loves, and loyalties are as important as spectacle and victories.  Sometimes creators forget the importance of one or the other.  We tried never to make that mistake.  We weren’t always 100% successful, but we tried.  We always wanted to show both hands in the picture.
