    The Avengers.  It was almost like the A-Team TV show where everything blows up and no one dies.

      All violence must be without real consequence. No death, no maiming, no pain and suffering. Just ka-booms and pretty lights. And a little trickle of blood at the corner of the mouth.

      Add in hot women in skin-tight outfits with cleavage out to here, legs up to there, and a bare midriff and men in tight pants with no bulges and you get the essence of modern American myth making.

      Our entire world is made for 12 year-old boys.
