There is, and never has been, any such thing.

I think the majority of us don't want batshit I/P mentalism taking over this thread - if you guys want to talk about that, start a thread down in TNZ.
Very good - but isn't that the problem with a political, or even simply "extra-legal", Superman? Given the amount of power he has, can he really be anything other than the big blue boyscout - within the law - and still be a hero?

This harks back to my "Seduction of the Innocent" thread. When was the last time we saw and unabashed, decent "good guy" on the screen without it being done ironically? Do we really want all our heroes to be retreads of Wolverine?
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
