I was reluctant to watch this movie based on two things: I never read the comic and I am really getting tired of the superhero genre in general. I do read contemporary comics, but I stopped reading superhero titles many years ago; even the satirical ones. That and the fact that the artwork for the comic Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is very much in the Manga “big-eye” style kept me from even trying to read it. The last superhero film with a similar contemporary feel that was also based on a comic that I watched was Kick-Ass. I didn’t enjoy that mostly due to its use of realistic violence while it still attempted to generate humor. There is no comparing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World to Kick-Ass, because the two films are completely different in tone.
