Being a big comic book reader and fan, I believe that comic books can teach people both ethics, morals and so much more about real life. To me, I believe that comic books can relate a lot to people and the stories that we read are much more than stories that are meant for entertainment.
I am pro-comic books help people learn,

Round 1. Acceptance
Round 2. Argument
Round 3. Counter-Argument
Round 4. Conclusion (No new information can be added)

I look forward for my opponent in this debate and pray that we can keep this a respectful debate.

I don't think there is any way to argue against this. Any form of literature, regardless of how it is portrayed by society as a whole can teach ethics and morals.

I am pro too. If asked I would cite, as examples of comics that illustrate your argument, Brian Talbot's "One bad rat" as an exploration of the impact of childhood abuse. Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" series which deals with many aspects of morality often turning the usual arguments on their head. On a more mainstream footing Frank Miller's "Dark Knight returns" deals with the Batman from a moral standpoint and the broader issues of vigilantism
