Super Heroes have the power of "flight over" and "transcendence beyond" and "presto chango." With our current cultural addiction to gradualism it is very good for us to meditate on what a new change agent would be. The humorless Swedish guy in the tape seems like the deadly Left, ready to condemn and unwilling to laugh. Music and laughter is the way to open up to change, and all the super-heroes have that, from the professional wrestlers to the pentecostal preachers. Notions of fantastic powers become play. A cape is the beginning of flying.
