Daily Ramble 82: Outcasts Save the Day
Interestingly enough playing through the beginnings of Horizon Zero Dawn and reading the first issue of Amazing Spider-Man have a bunch in common. Both portray situations where someone with ‘extra’ abilities do their best to help people in trouble. In Horizon, Aloy, with her earpiece, dodges machines and saves a boy who’s fallen into a dangerous area. In Spider-Man, Peter Parker risks everything to save J. Jonah Jameson’s test pilot son. And with both, the heroic efforts are met with disdain and hatred. For Aloy, we’re gonna have to learn why the Nora tribe considers her an outcast and for Spider-Man we’re gonna have to find out why Jameson hates him so much. Two very different heroes with very similar situations.
