Comics during the 80’s, 90’s, and early, 00’s were enjoyable to read. You got to read moral dilemmas and complex storylines.

Courage = Green
Fear = Yellow
Islamic Bloodlust = Red?
There are still a few of them. The Walking Dead, while not about super-heroes, is an excellent story and pulls no punches. I’m enjoying Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe right now also.
