Felgraf: Because he can't be everywhere at once: Even if he tried to save everyone, always, forever, he would fail. In some ways, I see the writer job as, in some ways, a way to keep him from going nuts.
likefunbutnot: That's not to say that morality is somehow absolute, but in effectively acting as a sort of local deity, he has to assume a corresponding level of responsibility even for the things that he allowed to happen through inaction. That's just the law of super heroes.
Mugato: OhioKnight: I always saw this as the hook for the Batman Superman relationship... "If I had your powers I could eliminate all organized crime on the East Coast in a week -- and you spend your time writing a syndicated column"Heh. Is that an actual quote? Because it could be.I always thought the same thing. WTF is he doing dicking around a newspaper office? Like Jor'el told him, "With great power comes great responsibility"./call off the dogs comic book nerds, that was a joke

likefunbutnot: imgod2u: You really could say the same about Superman.No, I can't, because I can't accept that a character with his set of powers and supposed moral rectitude would choose to do anything but act as a superhero full time instead of trying to plant his seed in our Earth Women and hang out at the water cooler with Perry and Jimmy.

meanmutton: HeartBurnKid: meanmutton: thecpt: Because their only good character is batman?Came here to basically say this. God, I hate DC.Then again, the Marvel movies made me like Thor - no small feat - so MAYBE there is a chance someone could do a Flash movie that isn't terrible.No, wait, never mind they can't.Watch this. Then say that again.I watched it and frankly didn't care for him, the villains in it, or the plot of the episode.I have zero expectations that I could enjoy a Flash movie. Hey, I get that other people like ths character. I just don't.
farbekrieg: C has done a horrid job of maintaining and marketing properties, they follow up huge amounts of goodwill created by Dini and Timm with shiatty offerings like the green lantern movie the last several superman movies, an ill advised Wonderwoman Tv show, and yanking their fans around with continuity reboots.
