We've all had them. Moments that defines how you'll be viewed in the eyes of others.
We have them, it seems daily. The difference between us and the superheroes we read is that when we have that moment, girders, steel and flying into the sun with a rogue nuke usually don't come into play.
Sometimes, we don't take the bait and simply turn the other cheek. Some days, we pay the bills on time simply because no one else is going to do it for you.
For me, to be able to bear witness to a defining moment, whether in reality or on the printed page, can be almost transcendental.
Whether it be something as small as the day I saw my youngest brother, at the age of three, quietly help a girl his age down from a sliding board or having the privilege to read Captain America in the pages of Daredevil #233, hold the flag and say, "I am loyal to nothing, except the dream." I still feel like the teenager who was given the words to express who he wanted to be in this world.
These are moments that make living, living. These are the moments that remind me why I love comics.
So, my question to you is this:
"WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE DEFINING MOMENT IN COMICS?"
