Superpowers wouldn't solve anything in this world.

That's the greatest lie told by superhero movies: that our society would be safer, and our world would be better, if only we had a select number of people with superpowers.

It's a lie, man. Superheroes excel at one thing: stopping local crime. That's about all they're capable of doing.

What about international humanitarian crises with no easy answers? Take Egypt for example.

Or even worse: Syria. Possibly the most complex puzzle the world has to offer right now, with absolutely no conceivable, workable solutions.

What's going to do in Syria? Take Assad out? Let Assad stay in power? Any action he takes will allow one of those two options prevail, and both are incredibly ugly outcomes.

Let's assume sides against Assad, since I think that's the more option of the two. What then, as 1,000 different opposition groups, a number of them jihadist groups, start to grapple for political supremacy?

What happens when the Iraq-style ethnic cleansing of Assad's people begins? Is capable of preventing ethnic cleansing?

Answers, people. I demand answers.

could do some serious good in this world. Dude has the power to fight "crime" on a global scale.

Humans can't escape human nature though.

Here's what can do that we can't, on a global scale:

We want to remove Saddam Hussein from power (for example). Boom, we just send in, and he pulls out Saddam without a problem.

Except that just opens the doors to one of Saddam's subordinates to take over from where Saddam left off.

Well, the most powerful incarnations of can fly at speeds near light speed, move planets, and is impervious to any man-made weapon.

He could literally stop a mugging in NYC, topple a military regime in Africa, then individually evacuate each member of a small Japanese city before a tsunami hit.. within a minute.

... That's why is gay as hell.

Well, if saved my local daughter, that would mean the world to me, therefore, to me, it would solve that. For other people, as all people are local somewhere, they'd feel the same. So just because a hero is limited in scope doesn't mean it wouldn't solve anything.

I think you are seriously underestimating the powers of . If you can reverse the Earth's rotation in order to undo events, I think he could have a real impact.

And if you don't think just one could do much--how about the entire Justice League? You're talking AND Batman AND Wonder Woman AND Flash AND the Green Lantern AND Aquaman AND a bunch of other more obscure ones I don't know. I assure you, they could get some shit done.

I'd settle for someone with the ability to see right from wrong. Though I don't think people on the whole. Would be as happy with that as they think they would.
