Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #91
The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Slowku On Slowku Avoiding Popularity
In most American comics if a superhero saves a city they become so famous they have to have a secret identity so everyone they love isn’t targeted by villains (of course their identity is always found out and all their loved ones are targeted anyways).
“Goku” saved the world if not the universe quite a few times and only a handful of people know who he is or what he did. Pretty much every time something happens or the situation makes it so people can’t see him do it.
It would be interesting to see a “what if” where people knew “Goku” saved the world. I’d imagine he’d be very uncomfortable. I’ve gotten into this before but “Goku” spends A LOT of time alone or with few people. His house is basically a shack in the woods. Also any perks of fame would be lost on “Goku”. The guy basically wears one outfit, and seems pretty happy to eat whatever he can hunt and kill. Some of these things change a bit in “Dragonball Super” but that’s clearly “Chi Chi’s” doing not his. In real life “Goku” has a holiday and is the one of the most famous heroes in all entertainment across the globe and he’d probably hate that…
That’s it for this week. Next week we start off with a new “The History Of Comics With Q-boy” where we meet “The Outlaw”. Then new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
