Does anyone else find the tone of the intro to be a little too derisive?

It's my understanding that this trope is supposed to refer to a person training their body (or mind) enough to be counted as superhuman, but there seems to be rampant linking to this trope when "regular" super strength is present in a work, from what I've seen.

Something might need to be done, is what I'm saying. Maybe a header on this page clarifying what it means, or something like that.

In the Mandarin header, it is claimed that Iron Man used his own rings against him in a 2008 fight. This is not true (I went back to the issue and checked) and should not even be possible anyway; nobody except Mandy himself (Okay, and his son) is supposed to be able to use the rings.

The example given in the introduction that humans can't harness chi as well of Goku because of training is.. well.. not true. Goku's a Saiyan. Given the same amount of training to a human, you end up with.. Krillin. Obviously.
