That comes from traditional North American Protestantism, always bordering on Manichaeism.
Europe is a continent shaped and traumatized by World War II as well, but there is the perception that deep down everyone is an asshole, and laws painfully and horribly keep everything in check.
The whole "DEEP DOWN SOME PEOPLE ARE GOOD" and "DEEP DOWN SOME PEOPLE ARE BAD" comes from Calvinism, and isn't rooted in other European religious/phylosophical traditions.

Law in North America isn't seem as a man-made necessary cage, with an inherent dose of tyranny, it is rather perceived as the only natural way people can live together in harmony, in a mutual and inner understanding, that some psychos don't accept.

Actually I'm Italian. Our comic tradition doesn't usually emphasize the side of "the law", but the other one.
Superheroes used to be a niche genre. I don't really know what kids read these days.

The Brits are like-minded in that respect, though. Before American morality came along, "morally grey" was pretty much the absolute norm in the 1900s and I grew up with it.

The glorious ubermansch full of steroids that destroys evil with violence is kind of a... new concept to us. It died off WITH World War II and America is bringing it back to the old continent (yay?).

nah, it's just the most recent example of something to flanderize to death, if not for Hitler it would've been Bismark or Stalin, Napoleon, etc.
