I know a lot of storytellers tend to find themselves in more "liberal" societies, but I think there are a lot of conservative values inherent to storytelling. Especially certain genres.
Recently, several superhero things have stuck out to me as very odd. The Mrs. and I were watching this season of Smallville (Superman's a conservative, right?) and they introduced a "right wing radio host who is on a campaign against [Superman]". And my first thought, as a conservative with more than his fair share of comics and other superhero paraphernalia around the house, is- Yeah, because conservatives haaaaaaaate superheroes.
I mean, there's all of that "right and wrong" and "with power comes responsibility" and "using violence to solve problems" and "criminals are bad" and "people using violence to solve problems CAN BE THE GOOD GUYS" and "saving innocent people from guilty people" etc...
Maybe it's one of those issues where both sides of the political divide want to claim what's good and desirable from pop culture... but I thought it was sort of a given that the superhero genre had certain tropes that made it more conservative friendly than a lot of other genres ("adult" comedies, for example).
I was reading Green Lantern Blackest Night which also had some liberal jabs at conservatives, and there was something else recently too.
Anyways, have at it.
IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!
