Open Thread: Realist Superheroes Edition

Talk about anything you want.

N0t much to report today, I watched the trailer for the new character in SFV:

This pretty much confirms that a leak that happened back in July was completely correct. Back then, there was a leaked list on a site called siliconera that said Karin, R. Mika, Urien and Alex as well as new characters called Zen, Rachid, and Laura would be the remaining unannounced characters. Now with both R. Mika and Rachid confirmed, it’s very likely that leak was true.


Question of the day:

Question: Me and my brother were watching Watchmen yesterday and he asked if there was any realist Superheroes in comics? Apart from the Comedian and Constantine (which we weren’t sure of), we couldn’t think of anyone as most are Idealists and a few are objectivists like the Question. Can you think of any realist Superheroes?

Update: Realist doesn’t mean realistic, It’s a philosophy and to quote:

realist is a noun that means a person who accepts the world as it literally is. Some may say you never expect good things to happen, but maybe you’re just a realist, a person who uses facts and past events, rather than hopeful feelings and wishes, to predict the future.
