Well that was when Superheroes were *gasp* good and moral

Now everyone has to be troubled and conflicted
A trend that I hope and pray comes to an end SOON. I miss the days when we got stories about people who were heroes, plain and simple.
Problem with that is it only would consists of heroes dressing up and displaying their powers and abilities against the villain of the week. After the day is won they will go home and wait for the next mad man or bank robber to start shit. That formula would get stale really fast. It's how comics operated mostly during the Golden and Silver Age, but now in the books and movies depth and exploration of the character is necessary.
Maybe I should have been more clear. When I said heroes, I didn't just mean superheroes. This meant the guys in space-based series like Star Trek also.

I'm just sick of stories that focus ONLY on people's flaws, and daddy issuses. Why can't people be good simply because they're good? We don't need to see them crying in their beer, or worrying about who's sleeping with who, or not, as the case may be. I'd just like to see a return of stories about good guys vs bad guys, and cut back on all the over-emotinal shit that's been done to death and run into the ground until it's gotten tedious and embarassing.
