wildcardjack: [cdn.leasticoulddo.com image 850x285]I posted this one because it fits. SMBC did one about Superman being used as a power supply.Spider Man is almost as bad as Aqua Man. All the characters in comics get endowed with super powers and use them to fight. You don't see things like Superman becoming a satellite repairman or a laser powered surgeon. CRFH might feature low rent art but at least they didn't become super heroes.Batman's at least human. But I don't remember much about Wayne Industries or any foundations do much to improve inner city conditions through economic activity or sending out counselors to mediate between gangs. The Rotary Club has an initiative to stamp out polio, and that's helping more people than any vigilante super heroing.
ZeroCorpse: So don't give me this "Oh No they retconned him!" crap about him being suddenly powered-up. He has ALWAYS been a supremely powerful Marvel character who just pulled his punches and held back until he had no choice. Given the right situation and enough preparation, he could probably take on the prime Avengers (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Giant-Man, Wasp, Hulk) and win with his combination of intellect, powers, gadgets, and never-give-up willpower.
HotWingAgenda: ZeroCorpse: Recently, Otto-Spidey kicked Wolverine's ass. He decided he was frustrated with Parker always letting Logan piss him off and treat him like an annoying kid, and he did something about it. Easily.Great. Yet another superhero gets retconned into being way the fark more powerful than ever before, and starts kicking ass all over the place, rendering his weaknesses pointless. We totally don't have enough comic book characters like that. *cough* superman *cough* batman *cough* wolverine *cough * greenlantern
