Alter Egos Is Yet Another Deconstruction Of The Superhero Genre. Yay...

Unlike Kick-Ass, or Defendor, or Super, Alter Egos actually has super powered super heroes. So it's more like Chronicle. Or The Incredibles.

I suspect the biggest impact this movie will have is that it is the first non-Kevin Smith film to be distributed by Kevin Smith's ridiculously named Smodcast Pictures, the independent company he set up to distribute Red State. I'm not saying Alter Egos doesn't look good. It does. I especially like the whole "secret identities cause mental illness" idea. But I'm betting this becomes a cult favourite at best. Which, unfortunately, is just the way things go sometimes.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
