2 classic examples of addiction and alcoholism in comics…at the time it didn’t get me sober but both were helpful in making awareness mainstream and dispelling some common myths about the illness.
There are many great examples today, including a recent Ironman that has Tony Stark anonymously chairing a “meeting” and telling his “story.” My interpretation was that the writer must have direct experience with alcoholism and for the most part remained true to the traditions of 12 step recovery.
Comics continue to help me reinforce principles and ideals greater than than myself…they teach self-sacrifice, helping others and serving the greater good, not for recognition and reward but simply because it is the right thing to do…
We all have amazing superpowers…will you use your power for good?
“With great power comes great responsibility.”
