Now it's pretty obvious that the Hero's job would be ten times easier if it weren't for the normal human beings who are constantly wandering into the combat scene during struggles with Bad Guys. With reporters getting held hostage, kids who happen to be standing at the point of impact for a plummeting grand piano, parents worrying about psychically overactive children, and so forth, we can see just pages and pages of unnecessary action getting crammed into each and every tale of heroic struggle. Come on, people. Let's just try to stay out of harm's way so that Superguy can finally rub out the scum once and for all, eh?|
