It’s the job of the good guys to kill the bad guys
The ten commandments for superheros according to Frank Miller (via Agent Bedhead)
“When I first got going on what became The Dark Knight, I just thought about him a lot, what kind of guy would do this stuff,” he says of his endlessly influential 1986 reinvention of Batman. That said, Miller says he’s sick of “therapy culture” and hand-wringing heroes like Spider-Man who go around whining all the time about the burden of great power. In 300 Sparta’s King Leonidas didn’t have to ponder the Persian Empire’s diplomacy—he kicked Xerxes’ diplomat down a well.

Frank Miller is the man. I can't wait to see how his adaptation of Will Eisner's baby turns out.
