As for these shrieking statues, I’ll not weep,
They’ll perish as they lived: dazed, witless sheep
In slaughterhouses far beyond their ken.
I shed no tear for those that die unshriven,
For they are men. Just men.
And what are men
But chariots of wrath, by demons driven!

-Etrigan, the Demon, "Swamp Thing" #26, by Alan Moore

Superheroes were never really a thing for me.
To be honest, they are fruit of a wilting tree
laying limp on the ground and found to be a lot
but consumed, as they must, as merely gutrot.
