On another note it REALLY annoys me when they go out of their way to put down the abilities and uch of other heroes. I have WAY more respect for a Batman or Green Arrow type that actually REALLY risk their lives every time they suit up than a pretty much indestructible superhero. It takes WAY more courage and guts to do what Ollie does that what Clark does.

Totally agree with you on that Othello. It's very easy to forget that Ollie (or Bruce Wayne) is mortal and that they're status as heroes rely on their special abilities that they've honed (intelligence, skill with a weapon, whatever). They're not bullet-proof and they don't have super-strength. They do what they do, despite the danger to themselves.
