Hobbes: Has Stupendous Man ever won a battle?
Calvin: Well, they're all moral victories.
Tarquin: Look at you! What are you, a protagonist? I'm so proud! Have you thwarted any villains yet?
Elan: We mostly run away or have mixed victories. Wait, does Nale count?
Tarquin: Eh, not really.
Elan: Then, no.
Commentator: He can't seem to do anything right... Watch him screw up over...and over --
Copycat: Fear not, people of San Francisco! I went to the future and saw the bridge fall apart, but now because of that, I can stop it from ever happen-- CRASH Heh heh. Whoops. It turns out that I was the cause of the bridge collapsing after all.
Onlooker: Well, it looks like Copycat has screwed up again!
Onlooker 2: What a surprise.
Copycat: Good news, everyone! I stop a terrible dystopian future from ever coming to pass! ...Bad news is that my actions have created a new future in which we all die.
Onlooker: Damnit! I knew you'd screw up somehow!
"Pumaman is ten times the movie that Captain America is, at least. And I'm being serious; I'm not trying to be funny. Pumaman is a far superior film. Just look at Pumaman for a second: It's full of action beats. There's lots of fighting. (It's not great, but it's fighting.) The music is surprisingly catchy! (Little crappy, but catchy.) And Pumaman has actual fucking superpowers. I mean, OK, so flying and teleporting has nothing to do with being a puma, but hell, look at this! He's using superpowers! He's tearing a car up and flipping it over with super-strength! That's cool! He's doing stuff! And it even has a memorable villain in the form of Donald Pleasence, who even in crappy movies does a pretty damn good job. Now, don't get me wrong: the special effects were terrible, the mythology was ridiculous, and the hero of Pumaman was a whiny bitch, too. But at the end of the day, it was about a hero flying around and fighting crime. And he did it a lot. Something Captain America didn't get around to until the 75-minute mark."
—Noah Antwiler on Captain America 2: Death Too Soon
Gabriel Macht is…alright as the Spirit. I guess. I mean, he is not really asked to do a whole lot and that is another complaint I have: The Spirit doesn’t really DO anything! Seriously, for as much power as he has, he is surprisingly ineffectual. Even after the climax I kept expecting something more from him. Seriously!? That’s it? Its sad that I think the police actually have the crime issue covered and don’t need a superhero.
"All you ever do is wave your finger at how people are gonna get killed and yet you're constantly getting people killed! What's wrong with you?! You're terrible heroes! All of you!"
