Quotes: Superdickery
"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."

"We’ve reached the inevitable stage in any Spider-Man plot where our protagonist decides that 'hmmm, wouldn’t it be easier and more lucrative for someone else to do my job? And if I were to let them, wouldn’t I be the real hero? Sure, probably!'"
The Comics Curmudgeon on Spider-Man

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!

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.
Chris Sims and David Uzumeri 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 (?!?)"
Jason Michelitch on Superman: Grounded, "The 5 Worst Comics of 2010"
