A Mighty Hero
Jarod Kintz once said, ~Love is the hero of all emotions. My love for you is a superhero, and it looks great behind hidden behind a mask.~ In some aspect, love and heroes such as Marvel's The Avengers are synonymous with each other in the sense that the 6 individual characters metaphorically portray certain aspects regarding matters of the heart. Tony Stark/Iron Man, Dr. Bruce Banner/Hulk, Captain America/Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanov/Black Widow, Thor, and Hawkeye/Clint Barton representing the oftentimes complicated duality of it all. For its most definitely an interesting situation indeed to go in depth with to the point where the thoughts, feelings, and emotions expressed by Earth's Mightiest Heroes coincide with how much of an impact it(love) makes or should I say has made to our own lives. Without a doubt, there is an essential innocence in love/true love such as there is in the first super soldier Captain America/Steve Rogers. Thinking about it further, the truly rich purity along with absolute refreshing honesty both convey it can certainly throw any guy/girl off at how remarkable it can not only stand the test of time, but remain ageless as well. Of course, there is the perception in which the two solidly stand for strong ideals but have unfortunately fallen by the way side because of an ever changing cynical society. True, the innocence and strong ideals may have been lost on others who continue to harbor deep seeded resentment due to past heartbreak; yet, for those like myself still hold true to all the supposed lofty, idealized concepts making true happiness so worthwhile when finally experiencing what seems to have been frozen in ice, so to speak, for so many years. As I said before, when it comes to love/true love the innocence and strong ideals can very well be lost on others who continue to harbor deep seeded resentment due to past heartbreak. You see, the conflict stirring within is like how Dr. Bruce Banner struggles to keep his anger in check because if he doesn't a path of destruction is left behind. If you think about it, when suffering painful inner turmoil one becomes conflicted experiencing feelings of possible raging anger. Unfortunately, there isn't a physical transformation but rather a mental, as well as emotional one to where it often feel like a prison you're unable to escape from. It's a sad state of affairs when the beastly monster known as anger is incapable of being vanquished due to not letting or refusing to let go of the past because in his/her/your mind it has strengthened instead of weakened him/her/you. Let me ask this question to those who are in a potential and/or significant relationship, what do you think love and The Avengers have in common? If you answered being a team or teamwork then you're correct. I think we all can agree there shouldn't be a Tony Stark-like egocentric sized and narcissistic attitude coming into the relationship knowing full well it will cause tension whereby weakening the team's cohesive unit established. What it primarily takes is a giant kick in the butt to realize there is a much greater matter of importance as it involves two people and not selfishly focusing on your own wants/needs. Let me tell you something, it took the death of Agent Coulson for Stark to finally wake up and get that much needed push. So I say to/ask you ladies/gents who aren't realizing they're part of an awesome team what's it going to take for you to finally wake up and be pushed in the right direction? In retrospect, every guy hopes to meet their own mysterious Black Widow/Natasha Romanov while every girl wishes their dream come true of falling in love with their God of Thunder Thor. Granted, it wouldn't hurt if there was the slightest possibility that they resembled the sexiest woman alive for 2013 Scarlett Johannson and sexiest man alive for 2012 Chris Hemsworth. Per chance to dream. In any case, we all ultimately want to have a Hawkeye/Clint Barton type bullseye hitting right on the mark only once in regards to our forever best friend. Hey, it's not always the case as it tends to take several arrows to eventually find yourself in all intensive purposes receiving or shooting a direct hit. In the end, love/true love has a way of teaming up in order to save the day when all things are seemingly falling apart at the seams and fight the battles not all couples could face together, which is why I consider it to be a mighty hero.
