Beyond Marvel Superheroes 超越漫威超级英雄

Why do people watch Marvel hero movies? Last week’s Avengers: Endgame garnered more than 1.3 billion dollars worldwide. The month before, Captain Marvel raked in 1.2 billion. The thirst for ordinary men and women who can be transformed into intergalactic heroes shows no sign of abating. I don’t believe Disney will stop the Avenger series. If there’s money to be made, more will be coming! These action-packed, good guys vs bad guys superhero sagas all come with unexpected twists and turns just to keep you glued and guessing all the way! And the producers laughing all the way to the bank…

What draws us to superheroes? Their human-ness. When they display doubts or show emotional vulnerability, we identify with them. We even think that maybe, we could be heroes too! When they die… we get all “shook up”. Funny isn’t it that our emotions are so bound to their characters? Deep inside each of us lies a desire to be more than we are! So often in life, many are bound by fears and conventions, so they hardly dare take risks. They see someone mugged and look away. A victim is beaten up, and they choose not to intervene. We are always looking for someone, somewhere to deliver us!

But that someone could be us! The Bible says we are “more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37). “Greater is He (Jesus) who is in us than he who is in the world (the devil)” (1 John 4:4). It’s time to take authority over circumstances and demonic powers. It’s time to step up and stop the Enemy bullying our families, our workplace, and locking us into bad health. It’s time to look not at our weaknesses, but to trust in His strength and power! Not in Thor, the Hulk, Captain America, or Iron Man… but in Jesus the Son of the living God! “Marvel” at Him for He lives in us!

为什么人们都纷纷去观看漫威英雄电影呢?就在上个星期,《复仇者联盟:终局之战》(Avengers: Endgame) 全球票房已超过13亿美元。而在一个月前,《惊奇队长》 (Captain Marvel) 的票房亦高达12亿美元。看来普罗大众对于普通人可以改造成星际英雄的渴望丝毫没有减弱的迹象。我不相信迪斯尼会就此停止复仇者联盟的电影系列。如果可以赚取更多金钱的,无疑将会有更多的作品出现!这些令人刺激万分、好人对抗坏人的超级英雄电影系列都带有出乎意料的剧情发展,使您不断的紧追并猜测至终!而这群电影制作人就一路笑着地去银行。。。
