Follow TV Tropes
The image is not from a work, and is frankly horrible. Also, the effect of the trope is diminished by the fact that the bulk of the heroic deed is done by professionals, and that there are just as many bystanders who are just gawking instead of doing anything heroic.

Previous thread; calling this a Keep Until Better Image Suggested case.
It's TV news quality. Could be improved, but Keep Until Better Image Suggested.
Keep Until Better Image Suggested. The quality of this one can't be helped per, and you see some non-uniformed folks helping push the car and two others going over to the body. Good enough for me.
I'll join the Keep Brigade.

That works, until someone else suggests something better.
Hmm, it's more text-reliant than the current (but it helps that he's in civvies and she isn't) but it's better quality and from a work...
6, because the thought bubble does most of the work (you can't tell the guy is a bystander from the picture, and that's rather important to the trope). Current pic is better.
6. I think it’s clear enough that the guy is a “bystander” due to his mundane outfit.
Keep the original image. That new pic doesn't tell us HOW this guy is just some civvie.

I think if we can infer that the bystanders in the current are not first responders because of their lack of uniform/safety equipment, we can infer the same for 6 given the superhero suit/civilian clothes contrast.

Votes bump; one in the green right now.
6 has hit super-consensus. It's in and the tag's updated; caption?
