“Only a hero with edges looks appropriate on an adult’s shelf.
File something that was round, square and sharp.
And you’ve got yourself a movie with little effort.
The people with their multi-problems will relate
And line your pockets.”
“Yes, Instead of wham and pow,
Let’s have murder, let’s have sex.
Give them mutants, freaks and outsiders,
Give them power struggles and temptation and hyper-violence.
Give our audience a shock and a thrill to see their childhood gritticised.”
