-- SPOILER ALERT--

Our Hero tries to be objective in his dislike of Thor Ragnarok. In his age of progressive action heroes did Marvel go too far in trying to make the God of Thunder relatable? Does a storyteller have a responsibility to offer a solution if they present a specific question to their audience? Are we seeing the end of the square-jawed, strong-silent action hero? And why is Cate Blanchett so much hotter in as a goth?
