Roger Ebert, Superhero?

The following essay was issued by Ebert Digital:

COMIC-CON San Diego is under way, and it inspired me to go back and read some of Roger Ebert's reviews of superhero movies (ten of which are linked below). Roger confessed to having a particular fondness for the superhero comic book (graphic novel) movie genre. As I read some of the reviews, I realized that to me Roger was my Superhero, the glasses-wearing, mild-mannered film critic who becomes Super Roger when yielding his Golden Thumb in favor of quality or fun films, whether indies or blockbusters, or when advocating for the rights of those without power. The ordinary man who becomes extraordinary when he unleashes his ability to empathize with others, racing to the defense of people of another race or age or ability or economic status. The hero who can rouse the consciousness of others to come together around issues of social justice and fair play. And the man who had an inner core of steel, and a physical constitution so strong he eluded Death until he was ready to submit on his own terms.
