the hero's journey at its best

the superhero archetype.

where the hero's journey is a reflection of what an audience wants to see or needs to see.

the obstacles that must be completed for the hero to succeed, the rock bottom the hero faces in despair and the lessons that changes the hero's character in the end all make the hero's trope one that is the most successful one within modern cinema.

once the pattern and archetypes are seen, there is no way to unsee them at all.
