<![CDATA[The battle of Superheroes vs Villains isn’t as simple as good vs evil anymore. This year’s major movies from both Marvel and DC explore the unchecked power of superheroes and make us wonder whether superheroes really do keep us safe.

So when do superheroes become anti-heroes, or worse, villains?
With the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans of both superheroes have to ask themselves how much destruction a superhero can wreck in the pursuit of justice. Can a superhero go too far? Bruce Wayne obviously thinks so, and makes it his personal mission to put a stop to the Man of Steel before he wrecks further havoc on innocent civilians.
