Uplifting Comic Story Arcs That Will Restore Your Faith In Metahumanity

Comic books used to tell uplifting stories written to teach a moral lesson, but the anti-hero trend came along in the 1970s and changed the world where superheroes live into a much darker place.

The morals were replaced by vigilante justice and dark vengeance, and the upright heroes from the old school started looking a bit hokey compared to those brooding bad boys and girls.

But morality, justice and hope will always have a place in comic books, and sometimes it's nice to see superstars like Deadpool, Harley Quinn and Spider-Man trading the sarcasm for some serious heartfelt expression.

Deadpool teaches a kid named Evan, who is the mutant god Apocalypse reborn, to be okay with his dark heritage, Harley frees herself from the Joker's grasp once and for all, and Spider-Man says goodbye to a young fan with terminal cancer.

These are the tales that amaze us with their emotional depth and astound us with their impact on our non-fictional lives, the story arcs that are nice to read in-between epic battle scenes.
