I would ask: Given the nature of free-market capitalism - where the rule is to rise to the top at all costs - is it possible to have a financial industry hero? And by the way, this is not a pop-culture trend we're talking about. There aren't many financial heroes in literature, theater or cinema.
Love of glory can only create a great hero; contempt of glory creates a great man.
Charles Maurice de Talleyrand

As far as superhero stories, what's appealing is of course that aspect of wish fulfillment.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
