Grant Morrison is one of the best comic writers and he has a refreshing take to how rebels ought to act: be optimistic. That’s right the greatest rebellion one can lead right now is one of optimism. Ten years ago he wrote All-Star Superman to show his approach and more recently people have been writing about the impact his Superman run had on comics.
A few years ago Morrison gave an interview which is still relevant today:
“In a world, Iâ€™m reliably told, thatâ€™s going to the dogs, the real mischief, the real punk rock rebellion, is a snarling, â€˜fuck youâ€™ positivity and optimism. Violent optimism in the face of all evidence to the contrary is the Alpha form of outrage these days. It really freaks people out.”
