Random Observation/Question #1

Superhero sequel movie plot: The public turns against the hero(es), believing he/she/they have done something wrong. The hero(es) must prove his/her/their innocence.

Is this Hollywood at its most unoriginal, or is there something more archetypal about this plot device?

  1. I am not sure how far back this idea goes, but it certainly can be applied to American culture. We have a tendency to build up heroes in various realms only to know them down. Plus, the United States is often seen as a place of second chances, so I think it is speaking to an American phenomenon.
