I saw The Avengers last night.
I'm not going to provide any spoilers, but I did want to say how much I enjoyed the balance between seriousness and comedy in the movie. I like the movie didn't take itself too seriously. I find self-deprecating humour very funny.
When I flip through the books of more recent editions of D&D, I miss the humour. That's probably why I like images of adventurers getting their asses handed to them or depictions of characters in situations beyond their control.
