Superheroes from Illustration to Written Word

Superhero comics (ahem)…sorry, graphic novels are a staple of a young boy’s reading journey.  Playing as large a part as The Boxcar Children, Harry Potter, and Patrick’s Dinosaurs.  We know superheroes can transcend from comic to screen, but can they survive in a medium without pictures?

Where would the voluptuous vixens be?  The square-jawed ruggedly handsome heroes?  The…  Well, I suppose they’d be right at home alongside heroes such as James Bond and Derek Storm (but not just in thrillers).  But do people want to read about Superman and Iron Man without the accompanying pictures?

After all, what’s the point of reading a comic without perusing the artwork?  It’s an acceptable way for adults to read picture books without needing to own steal borrow have any kids.  Unlike going to see movies like Inside Out.

Is there a point to this [is there ever a point to my ramblings]?  I suppose I’m just curious if people think Superman, Batman, or Wolverine could survive the transition from page of color to page of words.
