Superhero Motivation

Give me a reason why superheroes would go out and fight crime?

Commonly, some act in their backstory has instilled a sense of moral duty within them. Often, the story is about finding this moral compass.

Spiderman (2012) realizes that with great power comes great responsibility, after his uncle is murdered.

Superman (1978) has a sense of moral duty given to him by loving Earth parents and his Kryptonian father.

In Chronicle (2012), Matt finds his innate sense of right pulled out of him as Andrew goes wild.
