Would you consider Lisbeth Salander (a.k.a. the girl with the dragon tattoo) a superhero?
At New York Comic Con this year, a panel of veteran comic book writers and editors debated this topic; the panelists included Tom DeFalco (Marvel), Danny Fingeroth (Marvel), Paul Levitz (DC) , and Denny O’Neil (DC, Marvel). Psychologist Robin Rosenberg, editor of The Psychology of Superheroes and The Psychology of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, acted as the moderator.
The panelists all agreed that the definition of a superhero is difficult to pin down. However, they discussed two particular qualities that many superheroes possess: a heroic role heroic and abilities that go beyond what humans are realistically capable of.
The film has already collected nearly $100 million around the world, and was produced for a lean $13 million. The company plans to bring the film to U.S. theaters “early next year.”
