All of this Gun Control talk had me thinking about this the past few months but I had forgotten to make it until now so decided why not.
Pretty much, I wanted to ask you guys/gals here since most of us read comics of some sort if you think Super Heroes or Vigilantes really existed to defend the innocent, fight for truth, justice and the american way like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, JL, X-Men etc
Do you guys think the government/politicians would want to try to control them? What I mean by this is not previous stories in comics where the Government has worked, blackmailed heroes to do their bidding or anything but rather have a "weapon control" over the heroes. Meaning, you see all this stuff going on about Gun Control yet some feel it wouldn't change much and crime would still commence. So, what I'm asking is say Superman, Batman, Spider-man, Wolverine (I'll use them as examples) really existed, would the government try to have a "limited weapon" rule on them?
A Super Hero method control if you will..meaning, would those politicians in power like now be like "Superman, you can't use your heat vision or strength, too violent you could kill someone"
"Sorry, Batman but you can't use explosive batarangs, they're too dangerous" when you help us stop crime, criminals etc
"Mr. Spider-Man I'm sorry to inform you but if you want to continue fighting crime you can't use your webs past a certain point..."
Wolverine, my apologies but you can't use your claws anymore they're considered dangerous weapons only your fists, healing are allowed etc
You guys get the point I can go on and on but I'm SURE honestly if these guys really existed those certain individuals in power would try to control them, limit their abilities much like we see now with real times concerning guns. And of course you'd know like us humans now in the real world, there would no doubt be some heroes perhaps for it as well as against it...now we know most of these guys don't kill or like to, but that's not so much what I'm asking, but rather if you think they'd be ok with the politicians in power asking them to "limit their powers" while fighting crime, protecting humanity etc
Obviously if you take MOS and Spider-Man and Batman, those imo are the better examples of humanity automatically fearing these guys even though they clearly don't want to hurt anyone, but they use their powers, smarts, gadgets whatever to get the job done.
