Have you by chance encountered a short one-shot series "No Hero" by Warren Ellis ? (somewhat comparable to The Boys in concept and themes)
it's pretty brutal and at times disgusting (the artwork is pretty cool though) but IMO it shows pretty well the kind of fanatical masochists or tyrannical narcissists who will sign-up for the superhero-for-life business bloody seriously, even if they themselves don't realize it.
Just read your old post in Pairing discussion thread of The Last.
You talked about how JKR regretted writing Ron/Hermione.
So misconception no 1 : JKR never said that. Her half interview got leaked and her words got twisted.
All she said that they will have rough edges in their marriage and maybe will need some counseling.
Misconception no 2 : She only talked about Ron/Hermione. Notice how she didn't talk about Harry/Ginny ?
Because even if Ron/Hermione wasn't supposed to be together, it automatically doesn't mean that Harry and Ginny stops loving each other. Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny are not dependant on each other.
So yeah Harry always thought Hermione as sister and vice versa.
