A thought just came to mind. I remember hearing that there is really two types of super-villain.
Theres the soldier villain.....who fights with his body (generic bad guys in comics, or eg: Bane (Batman). The analagy instantly and obviously goes
out in real life to every armed robbery, bank heist etc.
Then theres the real menace, the villain that fights you with his mind. He (she) can control all other villains, using superior knowledge and skill to
defeat good instead of brute force. This would go toward the cold blooded serial killers, e.g: Jack the Ripper, or even those doctors we're always
hearing about that slaughter their patients, silently, cunningly......This type of villian is of course the most insane.
i guess if caught red handed with something like Armed robbery what difference would it be from one of the victims/ customer shooting the
You are right on that one. In a perfect (comic book oriented) world we could have spandex/kevlar wearing average joes with money to burn jumping
around rooftops, saving the day, but in reality, people can and would die, of course theres no collateral like in reality, good always triumps over
evil. This is completely not the case in reality.
In reality there is an extremely fine line between right and wrong. things are simpler in comics. we cant just have every tom, dick and harry running
around "fighting" crime. It would be far worse than what crime does now!
But getting back to the point, i know for a fact there are certain people who "take the law into theirown hands". (the internet is extremely scarce
on any details about vigilantes). I suppose if you had the skills, the tools and the will (and i might add a knack for quick escapes) then ok you
could become a "superhero". But not everyone.....
