I stopped watching almost all the superhero movies. Especially to the young, they solely convey the message that humanity's problems can only be solved by cartoon characters. What I'd like to see are more realistic, non-law enforcement, characters (especially Cypherpunks and Zombie Patriots) who through technology (e.g., crypto currencies, anonymous communications and anon prediction markets), planning, weapons and tradecraft can right some of the world's wrongs, eliminate as many of the corrupt and treacherous as practical, or better yet destroy the systems that create and sustain them.
It seems Hollywood generally stays well away from this topic. The unspoken message is that Western economic and (especially) political systems while not perfect are as the as good as mankind is likely to get and any notion they are not and might need major change or replacement cannot be tolerated. About the only recent movie I am aware that crossed this rubicon was "Law Abiding Citizen" (2009), staring Gerard Butler.
