What You Need to Know:

  • Is the concept of heroism as a career path an insult to superheroes? Ken Ogino, the author of "Lady Justice", a hero manga that cancelled serialization on Weekly Shonen Jump almost half a year after its debut, spoke his thoughts against the recent trend of heroes earning money for fighting evil.
  • There are many anime and manga titles that feature heroes earning money, including One-Punch Man, My Hero Academia, and Tiger & Bunny among others.
  • Read the criticism below!
Ken Ogino: The definition of a "superhero" is quite controversial. It's not as simple as putting on a flashy costume or saving the world. If there's a minimal requirement for one to be considered a "superhero", it would be the idea that the motivation behind the hero's justice isn't money. Recently there is an increasing trend of "fake heroes" that earn money by playing hero, but I can assure you that this manga's hero isn't one of them!

Reactions Around the Web

The author's got guts to dis HeroAca.
Is this guy dissing My Hero Academia?
I've never read either OPM or HeroAca, but are they "fake heroes earning money" stories?
Tiger & Bunny received money from sponsors, right? So I guess it includes that too.
Are you listening, fake hero manga authors?
Real heroes or not, it's as fine, as long as it's good.
Lady Justice is not good.
So no.

I feel bad for him, since his manga got cancelled... But he might have a point.
