Superheros and Fairy Tales

My theory about why people like superheroes is that when we were kids, we all loved to read fairy tales. Fairy tales are all about things bigger than life: giants, witches, trolls, dinosaurs and dragons and all sorts of imaginative things. Then you get a little bit older and you stop reading fairy tales, but you don't ever outgrow your love of them. … Superhero movies are like fairy tales for older people. All those things you imagined—if only I could fly or be the strongest—are about wish fulfillment. And because of that, I don't think they'll ever go out of vogue

A Quote from Stan Lee that I just came across.
