I dunno, by the look on Ethan’s face, it seems like it’s something he’s tired of hearing.

Almost like getting caught by the mall security guy who moves fastest on the Segway.

Are we getting an arc focusing on them being small unknown heroes, and how that might not be enough anymore? OR something along those lines. I hope so, since anyone, who had devoted years to risking their lives, might want some recognition, even though that wasn’t necessary to begin with.

Assuming Captain Prime and Decibelle are more powerful and higher league than Analog and D-Pad, they probably have more important things to do, than chasing petty thieves, so that makes sense.

Similiar to why, in the Marvel Universe, we didn’t see, say, Iron Man doing this kind of hero work.

Pshaw. You know, the life of a superhero isn’t all the intense moment-to-moment, end-of-the-world stuff that happens in a two-hour movie. Sure, they have a wild weekend every now and then, but that doesn’t mean they don’t still go to the grocery store, file their taxes, pick up the kids from daycare, mow the lawn.

I mean, I assume. I’ve never seen an MCU movie.

And if Cap sees someone holding up the 7/11 while he’s picking up Doritos? Yeah, I don’t see him standing by and thinking, “eh, the cops have this, game’s on in twenty.”

Iron Man would likely intervene too. But most of the time, he’d have someone else pick up his stuff at the grocery store and deliver it or have the food sent up from some nice resto or go out to one. He was hugely wealthy and famous and busy, so he didn’t have time for a lot of the mundane stuff. Now, many heroes aren’t rich (I have no idea how Cap/Steve Rogers pays for a place to live given we never see him having a job) and probably do have more mundane existences. Especially heroes who have not been… Read more »

Cap is probably on a pention as a retired war vet, though idk how well that pays. Maybe he gets royalties for his image being used? or maybe he just crashes at shield or some hero hq most of the time, though I be he eats like a horse.

Sure, they’d intervene if they saw it happen. But on a regular basis, it depends if they are patrolling and on the lookout for petty crimes like that, the way I think Analog and D-pad do.

Batman also stops small criminals from time to time.

Sure, but Batman’s main thing is fighting crime, that’s why he became Batman in the first place.

Ethan prefers deadly burns, they don’t leave scars.

They got off lucky. If he finds out they were stealing a PS5 shipment to scalp them on ebay <i>he</i> would have to be restrained.

I just remembered: A friend of mine was working for Border Services or Immigration (he has worked for both) and was interviewing someone not admissable and with a warrant. He got fed up with the guy’s lies so he said “It has been a long day and we’re both here right now. The difference is I’m going home to bed and you’re going to jail.”

Oh it has nothing to do them not being ‘real’ superheroes. He just wanted to be tied up by hot women.

That dude is wrong, the real superhero here is Scott. The others are people with superpowers and disguises.
