The suggestion that we have hit a saturation point with superhero movies has become an increasingly pointless gesture in film criticism.

Archer is doubly motivated in exacting justice against Troy because not only is he a terrorist, sadist and all round nasty piece of work, he was also responsible for the death of the Special Agent’s son.
