Quotes: Super Dickery

"So, in this comic we find out Superboy would rather be pimping out his ho than saving innocents."

"Hordes of impressionable poverty-stricken young people having all their arms and legs broken by an extremely rich businessman."

"For all his bluster about 'With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility', Peter Parker is probably the most irresponsible super hero ever."

"You’d think that Peter Parker’s own extremely non-lucrative journalism career would give him a little more sympathy for the sad souls who pissed their editors off enough to be exiled to the Spider-Man beat for their various publications. But nope, being Spider-Man means you can just be a stone-cold dick to whoever you want!"

Spider-Man: This is like when Harry Osborn needed my blood to save his own life, but I wouldn't share it with him for some reason, even though sharing my super-blood to save a friend's life is a pretty straightforward superhero thing to do. Which makes it even weirder that I spent so much time convincing everyone that Harry and I were old friends. It's almost like I'm ... Oh, God. I didn't realize this but ... I'm an asshole.

Jay: This genetic experiment? The best superpower that Captain America comes out of it with is the ability to pretend he's sick so he can steal peoples' cars.
Jack: I can run slightly faster than an old man!
Jay: What a dick!

"Should you ever doubt that the Internet is truly a magical place, consider this: Any time you want, you can head over to YouTube and watch a VHS rip of 17 minutes of live-action bumpers from 1995 where an actress dressed as Japan’s greatest superheroine talks about the episodes, gives life lessons, and reads fan mail....Maybe the best part of the entire thing, aside from the gloriously cheerful enthusiasm that (Tia) Browsh shows in her role, is how completely harsh she is in shutting down questions from fans. Admittedly, this is perfectly in character for Serena — she always was a little selfish — but dang, those poor kids who wrote in asking if they could one day become Sailor Scouts probably had their whole weekend ruined when Sailor Moon not only told them no, but told that one poor kid he was a “bean brain.” Not cool, Serena. At least let me—uh, them down gently."
Chris Sims, "17 Minutes Of Live-Action Sailor Moon Life Lessons"

"John Barrowman, possibly the world’s greatest entertainer (he can sing, dance and present with equal aplomb) but not the world's most gifted actor, finally gets his own drama to front and the results are variable at best...Jack’s joke for everybody to ignore Gwen and go about their business as she stands there holding the pizza should work far more effectively than it does, but the net result is that this crew seem even more conceited than they already did. Why does Jack spend an inordinate amount of time posing with his hands on his hips atop vertiginous buildings looking out across Cardiff? Surely he isn’t lording it over what he consider to be his town? And if so, wouldn’t have set his sights on something a bit sexier?"

"This must be American Bandstand, because you’re a dick, Clark."
ComicsAlliance on Smallville ("Covenant")

"Jor-El says, "If you save Lana, someone else will die."

And Clark says,
"Okay, I'll kill someone."

Just in case you missed that. Because I'm so mad I want to kick my own head so hard it doesn't land until I finish college. And I dropped out to write. I'm not finishing."
Neal Bailey on Smallville ("Reckoning")

Chris: Superman flies out to space and listens to things for a little bit, and I’m not sure if this is intentional on Singer’s part or if we’re just reading into it, but he definitely hears sirens and gunfire and babies crying, but doesn’t move an inch until he hears the alarm from someone robbing a bank. Superman is all about the 1%, y’all.
David: I never picked up on that. Oh my God, he really has truly messed up priorities.
ComicsAlliance on Superman Returns

"In Superman #701, our hero runs some black drug dealers out of a foreclosed neighborhood in which they’ve set up shop. (These are, it should be mentioned, the first and nearly only black people he meets while walking through Philadelphia, a city with a higher proportion of African-Americans than New York City.) Superman’s brilliant strategy for getting rid of the drug dealers is to set fire to the drug stashes in each of their houses with his heat vision, and then… leave. Now, I guess you can read the comic and assume that he has the whole thing under control because, you know, he’s Superman. But setting a half-dozen large fires throughout a neighborhood and then just walking away seems stupid.

As he leaves, Superman comes across a magical white child who appears and offers him candy. Superman smiles, asks this random little kid to deliver a message to the drug dealers for him (?!?)"
