That One TroperAll I see is someone punching through a skyscraper.
Evil is my favorite color.
A Wizard boyYes, and they look like superpowered people, too.
Anime-tedKeep Until Better Image Suggested...definitely could use something better.
Not sure we'd be able to find an image that makes clear they don't actually have superpowers. Maybe something from one of the Trope Namer ads?
Evil-Smiting UmbrellaKeep the current image, but make it also a link to the video that shows off said "skyscraper-punting".
slowly but surely / the moon / quietly goes to the stars
Maybe a panel of a comic describing a character like this? The first one that comes to mind is Negi Springfield describing Jack Rakan's background (EDIT: Chapter 243, p4-5). Maybe Rock Lee.

Teutonic Tomboy T-GirlI don't see how the current image merits keeping - there's no evident difference between this and, say, a long shot of members of the Legion of Super Heroes doing something similar. It seems like you need knowledge of the work for it to make any sense as an example. I think we basically need an image with both:

Hmm... A good image for this needs to explain somehow that if you train hard enough, you can do anything... I have a couple of images I found online... how do I show them?

Wandering JewLink them.
Everything is Possible. But some things are more Probable than others.
But how do I do that? When I link an image, it says no hotlinked images please.

A Wizard boyYou need to put them in a link: [[URL]] not URL.
Anime-tedOr even better, [[URL description of pic]]...that way people have a clue as to what the pic is before clicking the link.
serial tweaker, sorryreplace "URL" with a link.

please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.
Avatar by NeoriceisgoodNot quite. Here's another demonstration. Code: [[http://raymanpc.com/wiki/script-en/images/2/20/BziiitPC.png Rayman fights Bzzit]]
Result: Rayman fights Bzzit◊

Ok, thanks... ^_^'
That One TroperI think something along the lines of a character in a Training Montage followed by him Punching out Cthulhu or some such superhuman feat.
Evil is my favorite color.
What about Batman's origin story?◊
For the people!
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
Anime-tedThat works for me, with a caption like "Plus there's that whole bat-in-the-window thing..."
Teutonic Tomboy T-GirlHmm, that could work. The one-handed barbell lift thing certainly looks superhuman, unless Bruce is doing prop comedy.
I have arranged an image with the two panels and placed it in the article, as supported. I'm open to suggestions for the text below if someone has better ideas, but "Plus there's that whole bat-in-the-window thing..." requires the reader to be aware of that detail of Batman's origin (which is not included here, and if we used the whole page, the "atlas superpower" thing is less evident)
For the people!
Anime-tedDon't jump the gun; we haven't actually decided to use the pic, just that it's an option to consider. I pulled it off the page. I so want to reference a scene from The Dark Knight Returns in the caption, but I think it'd be too long: "How else do you think he could carry 220 pounds of sociopath to the top of Gotham's Twin Towers?"

Murder BlastWhy was the original removed? I think the caption underneath it explained it. "Train hard enough and you too can punt skyscrapers..." Can we keep the caption and least and just modify it? I liked that one! -_- "Train hard enough and you too can punt/block/punch/kick [insertgiantobject].
RQZDUGV DRVKLPD!Read the earlier posts in the thread. That image was a bad illustration because it relies entirely on the caption to inform the reader that they aren't actually superpowered.
