AVClub: It’s an old trope, both in comics and life: The notion of failure as a more valuable experience than success. Think of Bruce Wayne’s father from Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, asking his son, “Why do we fall, Bruce? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.” Remember JFK, encouraging us to fail greatly so that we can achieve greatly. Or Henry Ford, considering that failure is just a chance to more intelligently begin again. We learn more from failure than success because learning, in large part, is about shutting down unknown avenues of possibility. It’s about realizing that those who haven’t failed as you have know less, in a sense, because they don’t yet see the results of such experimentation.
