How Comics Shaped Games

Though they originally began as portrayals of scruffy immigrants and their misadventures in trying to make ends meet, over the past century, comics have been shaped by various forces to fit a very familiar mold.

As fears of child delinquency forced comics away from gritty crime and ghost stories and into the realm of fantastic tales of good versus evil, the medium gradually took on a very standardized form, which can be seen today in ludicrously popular movies like The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man -- talk about making the best out of a bad situation.
