In the comics, superheroes work because they either have abilities, resources, or knowledge that allow them to go beyond the skills and legal restrictions of the law. Especially in a comic setting where villains can be all over the place from minor to world breakers, superheroes simply become an aspect that allows for peacekeeping when the police are restricted.
These real world “superheroes” don’t do any of that. They don’t do anything and don’t have any skills or assets that would allow them to do anything a standard Good Samaritan couldn’t do. The difference is that they want to do those things and have a delusional fantasy of being adored and admired for doing things good people do anyways.>>114195513 is a perfect example. I also have a friend who is a cop that has done more for his community than them, and doesn’t expect anything out of it. He even helps with charity events for free because he’s just a good dude.
/co/‘s boner annoys me because they seem to ignore the fact that all he did was push his own delusions and quit when he wasn’t a superstar, and even other delusional largest said the same thing about him. Him being arrested for crack isn’t shocking, because anyone with that attitude is going to be a hypocrite.
