We need a superhero to sort out problems in the world

Ewan McGregor  as Renton in Trainspotting - the gender neutral toilets Zella has visited are almost as grubby

ZELLA COMPTON: Men – just aim it in the right direction and we’ll all be happy!

Have your say

Lying in bed after an operation, you get to watch an awful lot of dross on the TV.

I’ve been struck by how women are portrayed in adverts as either decorations or skivvies.

What I’ve also noticed is how redunk our superhero films are.

Seriously, if you were a superhero would you choose to fight petty crime on the streets of New York, or would you man or woman up and go and sort out drought and poverty in the Third World?

Why have we restricted our superheroes to such small lives that they only fancy tackling things going on in America?

It’s time that someone invented a new one to tackle the world’s problems and give us someone in which we can invest some emotion.
