Book: Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey
"Jasper Jones has come to my window. I don't know why, but he has. Maybe he's in trouble. Maybe he doesn't have anywhere else to go." -Opening lines
"See, Batman is different. He's mortal. He's got a real life to risk. Superman just has to avoid Kryptonite. Big deal...Batman has the same vulnerabilities as the rest of us, so he has the same fears as us. That's why he is the most courageous...My point is this: the more you have to lose, the braver you are for standing up."-p. 56 (The main character, Charles, and his friend are fighting over who is braver, Superman or Batman.)
Jasper Jones is the town's juvenile delinquent, yet he needs Charles to help him with a problem. But as you see from the second quote, Charles is still a young teen interested in super heroes.
