Although he DID have an interesting talk with Hitman, who you would think would be even MORE offensive to him, taking money for killing people. ---Al

Didn't Superman confront Spectre with the Spear of Destiny when the Spectre destroyed an entire country? (And the evil of the Spear, long held by Adolf Hitler, started to corrupt even him?)---Al

Wasn't that in a post-Crisis issue? I think I remember the cover, but I never read the story itself.

Anyway, I've always wondered what the in-story reason was for Superman not taking down anti-heroes. The closest we ever saw to that was the Gulag in Kingdom Come--and that wasn't set in the mainstream DCU.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

Yeah, it was post-Crisis. But then, MOST antiheroes, at least in the DC universe, are post-Crisis. ---Al

I think the Golden Age Batman might also qualify as an anti-hero. He carried a gun (which he used) and wasn't as interested in preserving life as he would become. I like to think that Robin mellowed him out.  :wink:
