Power of Comics

According to this article, the comic Dan Dare, influenced the hi-tech inventions of the 50s and 60s in the UK. There is a lot of tech in this comic and it inspired the children to head into science.  Some of that actual went into building nuclear weapons. As unfortunate as that is, this shows the power comics can hold over us.  It can inspire and not just entertain us.  They can be used for wartime propaganda or to instill national beliefs as well.  What do you think about the power of comics?
