EX. Adolescence is dangerous. That time between teenage years and adulthood? Even more so. In these formative years, a person is constantly seeking new role models and ideas to follow. During this metamorphosis, which can last from anywhere from a decade to, in some desperate case, several decades determines who that person is going to be for their rest of their life. In a round-about way, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is more about this personal journey that it is about the temporal romances of youth. It is about whether you will grow up to follow the standards set by society or will you become a deviant element. Will you be a hero or a villain? This is really the heart, the question, that lies at the center of the X-Men comics as well.
Your formative years are about choice.
