    To be honest, everything that is talked about in this article isn't about superheroes from game sin particular, nor goes over anything that hasn't been talked about in the comic book adaptions of the characters. But what it does do, in making you think about video games, and talking in general terms, makes me (and hopefully others) think about other super powered video game characters. People will go just as crazy upon seeing Sonic or Mario as they would Spider-Man or the Fantastic Four, as they are just as weird and fantastic. And that goes for more "Cute" or "Childish" games as well. Just imagine how people will react if Kirby appeared and sucked something up? Or if Squirrel Girl... Actually, I think people would be just as impressed with her as in the comics. In other words, I liked this article. Good work Benjamin!

    Real life super heroes would be awesome. I've always wondered how they would exist in the real world and this article has helped so much.

    If you gain super powers, move to San Francisco (or fly/teleport depending on said power) and you should be pretty ok.

    The main question for the comments should be asking what you'd do with super powers. In my case it'd be along the lines of a bunch of people going missing with no bodies ever found (they disintegrated). My point being that I'd kill people who particularly get on my nerves but hide the fact that I ever did so along with the powers entirely. I'd also need to find a workaround for swimming as I had every single power from the three inFamous games in mind.

    Super Heroes would definitely have a much harder time than what comics and games show us.

    "We rarely see this in games" Bullshit, the gaming media loves doom of any kind for any company.

    I believe they are talking about the story of superhero games, not the industry itself, way to miss the point :P

    They ARE talking about how the Media would treat super heroes "And once you make a slip-up, that is then likely to be broadcast… that’s the nature of the public eye. It would be impossible for somebody to hide”. We rarely see this in games, as the tendency is to focus on the action rather than the aftermath..." Journalism in general is always keen to focus on any slip-up regardless of profession said journalism is on.

    Epic awesome! I love this article. It's so intriguing seeing how everything in superhero-dom is compared to how they would be in real life... Now I'm wondering what this person would say about Pokemon being real...
