What I find most interesting is that individuals try to argue or debate fantastic elements of comic books. This being said, reading a comic book is not much different than reading a non-fiction sci-fi novel or watching an IMAX movie. There are just some magical or fantastic elements that happen in the books that the reader knows is impossible and yet accepts this information as magical or fantastical. Examples of this are things such as time where a character talks for a while and the action is perceived as split seconds. Other examples would be no body but Thor can lift his hammer and yet this fact is rationalized. I find this interesting because there are so many blogs/forums about comic books anywhere from characters, character abilities/weapons, character lineage, and progression of story / narrative, character succession, multiple dimension/worlds and these topics are argued and debated to come up with a rational explanation. The big question is why? But I guess that is the fun of these comic books. By having these online communities it adds value to the comic book that is not provided in the comic itself. This is very similar to reading a textbook chapter and then going to class to listen to a lecture to supplement that reading. The other question is why is there so much debate around fantastical elements when all that time debating could be used for figuring out different issues that the world is facing like solutions for the housing crash, cures for different diseases, or even future technologies. It seems like a big waste of time to argue and debate about something that really has no practical application for the world. With the advent of the popular show Big Bang Theory this argument has reached mainstream.
