Sue Storm Richards ( also known as Invisible Woman) is one of my favorite superheroes ever. She's smart and very crafty. I first knew about her in 2005 with the movie The Fantastic Four. I never knew that invisible under I saw her (played by Jessica Alba) become invisible. I thought that it very cool. Then I got to a get where Sue Storm was on fire for the whole time. I was chuckling the whole time. When the fire was put out by Reed Richards, she was completely naked. Not that it completely shocked me, but it was definitely a surprise. You can see the scene here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzQHFHQYE9A
That scene had me think about gender roles and feminism. OK, I'm kidding. But it did get me think about how female superheroes are shown to me. They are usually very beautiful, and if one are not avid comic-book reader, then that will be all that he/she cares about. It may sound assuming, but its true. The first thing that anyone uses to judge anything was by how it looks most time. If they didn't get someone as pretty as Jessica Alba to play the part, then less males would probably have less interest in the movie, which would result in less people seeing the movie. It was a part of who I am, and a part of some people as well. It was not until I actually read about Sue Storm and her life story that I began to have a true appreciation for her as a super heroine and as a person. If a person can save people when they were basically orphaned, then that's some deserving of very high respect.
