Comics can get pretty out there, even in the best of stories, regardless of how grounded it is supposed to be. But of course, there are a lot of people that love certain kinds of stories over others and so can look past some bizarre events and/or concepts.
There’s science fiction, which has helped create/explain several iconic characters, including Superman and Cyborg. Some stories present some intriguing concepts and ideas that aren’t out of the realm of possibility in real life. But there are times where they do something that is supposed to be scientific but there is no possible way that it could be explained rationally, other than just calling it magic. This is how we got the term “comic book science”. But there are people that are able to defend some of these actions and events, and props to them for finding something possible in the seemingly impossible.
Magic can be just as guilty. But in defense of magic, it is supposed to be out there. At least, to a certain extent. Comic stories based in the supernatural are supposed to pit heroes against something larger than life, portraying the ultimate fight of good vs evil. It is usually these stories that are referenced as the reasons why Comics are the modern day’s equivalent of Ancient Mythology. For those that gravitate more towards these stories, these stories have a certain tone and style that’s simply exciting and intoxicating.
Ultimate question, what kind of story do you prefer when it comes to comics - Science Fiction or Supernatural?
