El Pato Verde is almost like a second home to our family and I have spent many a Tuesday and Saturday evening there wrapping burritos. My little job working with Victor and Rosi has been more fun than work and we have appreciated how they have adopted us.
I have been thinking a lot about it since we saw it and I really love that all the characters have different strengths. As I go through life and meet cool people I start to think that there is a "right" way for a person to be. For example, I think that it is right to have a perfectly clean house, or to run multiple marathons, or to make beautiful DIY crafts and that the rest of us that aren't really succeeding in those areas are just kind of failing. As I watched the characters in the movie with their different skills it made me think that it is silly to assume that the right way to bring justice to humankind is by wielding an enchanted hammer, or that in order to correctly kick butt you would have to have an arc reactor imbedded in your chest and an iron suit to fly around in. Sometimes what is needed is a big green monster with an incredibly explosive temper or a willowy gymnast/interrogator who does her own share of taking care of business. There might even be a situation in which what is needed is a great leader who carries a bulletproof shield. It is the differences in who they are that make the Avengers unstoppable.
Okay, so I know this is a pretty big stretch, but I'm serious. I needed comic book characters to show me that there isn't a perfect way, but a lot of great ways to be. Not being good at everything doesn't mean failure, it just means that everybody has her own way of fighting alien armies that are trying to take over the world.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, whatever they are, let your superpowers shine...and let go of the rest.
