    That's what kryptonite is for.

    Even that is totally perplexing.

    Fly around, hear and see every bad guy on Earth and zap them with eye-lasers.

    That he allows himself to be surprised by kryptonite - ever - is ridiculous.

    LEAD!

    The excuses are infinite.

    His enemies are extremely incompetent, though.

    Oh I found a big chunk of kryptonite. I'm going to leave it in a huge rock form and just sort of have it sit over there whilst tricking Superman to come close to it. Bullshit. Have that turned into bullets and shoot the motherfucker in the head.

    A good Superman isn't so much about if he wins but the process along the way. You have a man who can safely compete with gods but is still ultimately [strike]human[/strike] super powered alien. A lot of the really great moments for him aren't man vs man stories but man vs self.

    That's why a lot of the best Superman stories either have him fighting some cosmic-level evil that he can just go all fucking out on, or explicitly have him holding back and struggling with the desire to do good, to keep his morality in check despite the firm ability to force everyone to listen to him if he wanted, and so on.

    Why doesn't he put the whole world in a bottle?

    this video has colonel sanders kissing a woman in the mouth while jack in the box looks on in approval. Again slightly NSFW.

    It doesn't have connotations of being in the field; it's entered popular vernacular as just 'to disassemble'.

    Pretty much. It's easy to write a terrible Superman story. It's hard to write a good one but some of the good ones are great. And it gives Garth Ennis to write something great that doesn't involve male rape.

    Here's the thing.

    Superman was raised from near-birth as human, and depending on canon, may not have even developed powers at all until his teenage years.

    So his story is of one with very alien abilities struggling to keep his humanity and goodness when it would be so damn easy to just, as one story said, put the whole world in a bottle.

    Guys, what you don't see is that Robin has a very strange relationship with Batman. One of those Sub/Dom relationships where the basis is humiliation and unrewarding effort. Robin loves being forced to pedal Batman and Superman in public like that. He is sweating as much from ecstasy as he is from physical exertion.
