yeah, i hate how the comic creators dont think the heroes are powerful enough, so they elevate them to god-level. what will they come up with above that!?!?!? like you said, the masked vigilante cant compete, so their taken out of the comics. this destroys a great part of superhero stories. there has to be an awesome guy with no powers, who can compete with powered heroes. if comics lose that, then they become just a picture book of immortals exchanging bangs and metaphorical button mashing.
in answer to the name of the thread (which isnt phrased quite right): yes.
