    WORD!

    The other thing about flying is that it makes Superman look really dumb when he has to stop and "hover". And are the arms thrust forward really necessary?

    I can't believe flying is out of reality, but someone who can shoot spiderwebs from his wrist, or someone who can fight blind, someone who can change into a green monster isn't.

    Batman cape was disguised or tried to resemble of batwings rather than a cape

    The thing different about spidey or bruce banner is that, at least, they sort of explain (ok the tipical lame "radiocativity changed me!") why. But with super man... voiala, the guy can fly, but it is not because he is not affected by gravity, no (he will most the time float then), is just that he thrust himself with the power of his will because he is not human.

    Also, not being human, makes him... less human?

    From all superpowers available, i think a guy flying makes it, i dont know, "weird"...

    Maybe it has to do something with me watching also this

    It was really funny. though.

    The thing with Superman is that he is pretty much indestructable and has everything, escept one weakness which is krpytonite.

    Batman, Spiderman etc are not superman in the sense they can be killed by a bullet, they dont run fast etc and they are vunerable.

    But like I said before, that's why they give him all the toughest enemies. Who else is facing Darkseid? Or Doomsday? Or Brainiac?

    Plus, it usually isn't a matter of his life, it's him saving other people (usually Lois Lane).

    but they don't have to face Apocolypse. Damn he should be in X-Men. So should have Mr. Sinister.
