Do Heroes do community service? Like picking up trash on the side of the highways? Why haven't I ever seen Flash run to poverty stricken areas and just start rebuilding shit? Why haven't I seen Bruce Wayne backflip a family a new home?

Bruce Wayne basically rebuild Gotham every 5 years.

Nice get but superheroes are normally shown doing community work all the time. Usually as an intro to an issue.

Pretty sure Bruce Wayne has saved as many lives as Batman has.

Flash's power is so stupid.
How is he not insane already?

I mean for the people it took only a few seconds, But in Flashs mind this must have taken a year or so. Flash must have experienced a hundred lifetimes already, most of it just running and building/dismantelling stuff.

Because deep down, most heroes are just deluded fascists who would rather punch a criminal in the mouth than effect any lasting change. Using their perceived "superiority," they anoint themselves judge, jury and sometimes executioner for their own self-aggrandizement.

Like, if Superman really gave a shit, why isn't he stopping genocides in Africa instead of fucking around with Lois Lane? Why doesn't the Flash collect and distribute any of the wasted food that gets thrown out every day despite being perfectly capable of being eaten? Why hasn't Wonder Woman opposed any of the puppet governments installed around the world?

Heroes don't actually want to change anything at a fundamental level, because it's the status quo which benefits them the most. They need a semi starving, disenfranchised and disorganized populace to feed their own legend.
>>
>>78756834
I can't answer your flash question, but in comics when superheros get involved in similar situations, the political shitstorm is too thick to breath through,
The most recent example that comes to mind is Superman: Earth one, volume two.
>>
>>78756834
Superman combats natural disasters and Wonder Woman works as a diplomat to effect political change. Fairly sure Flash works in disaster relief too. Batman pours money into gotham orphanages, homeless shelters, reconstruction efforts, welfare, etc, it just doesn't do anything because gotham is cursed to be a shithole forever.

He's generally just committing citizens arrests, it's just that he can do it to people most people can't, like bank robbers.

Until you realize that him building them a new building will increase the property value and now that it's no longer a rundown shithole, the owners of the land (and subsequently the owners of the new building) will evict all the people there and rent to a higher income.

Really?

Mainly the Batman. But that's just part of his plot armor
>>
>>78757958
To be honest, I dunno, that could make for an interesting one-off story. Superman, Flash, some big powerful hero gets caught up in some local, messy conflict that mere superheroics won't solve. Like dealing with an impoverished African village or something. The hero has to find a way to use their powers to enact lasting, meaningful change.

Maybe Lex Luthor tries to interrupt and Superman's just having any of that shit. "No, Lex, I'm doing this now, fuck off."

Kinda yeah. They brought it up though, remember when Superman told the US goverment to go fuck themselves and renounced his US citizenship? It got onto national news and everything here (in the UK). I remember watching a BBC piece about it.

Wait, by host country I meant the country in which they were operating. So in the UK its UK law, US its US law, Russia is russian law. They don't have to act though, so in Saudi Arabia they obviously are not obliged to arrest a woman for sun tanning.

There was a story arc about Thor where had inherited the Odinforce and decided to actually use his powers to help people. In one case, he goes to the west coast and uses his powers to just create a shit ton of lobsters so that fishermen who had lost their livelihoods through overfishing, pollution, and what not, could have work.

If you can't tell, this is comics, so it was a Bad Thing.

Thor goes on to interfere in a genocide in an Eastern European country. This is also a Bad Thing, and Iron Man and the US Army show up to stop Thor because preventing genocide could start World War 3. Tony Stark said that. For realsies. Tony Stark deployed his Thorbuster armour, which was powered by a magic crystal Thor gifted to Tony in order for Tony to develop an energy source that was cleaner than fossil fuels. Tony used it to power a suit of armor intended solely to kill Thor, the friend who gifted him that crystal. Tony consulted with noted supervillain and tyrant Dr. Doom on this project.

In the end, the person who prevented the genocide was Dr. Doom with some keikkaku Doom-wank.

Thor would go on to take over Earth. He provided free housing, healthcare, and sustenance to every person. He eliminated racism, classism, sexism, and other -isms. Everyone who wanted it had access to higher education under Thor's regime. No more would you have potentially brilliant minds left to stagnate at minimum wage jobs because they couldn't afford college tuition.

Of course. This is comics, so it's a Bad Thing.

Because, you see, some people, given every possible opportunity to improve themselves and all of the artificial obstacles removed, chose to be lazy. Literally only human nature was stopping anyone from being the best person they could be.

Loki was around, doing as Loki did. But somehow this was presented as Thor's fault, and a reason why Thor's utopia needed to never happen.

So the reset button got hit, and the moral was that Thor shouldn't use his Skyfather power to help people

DC heroes tend to do it the most.

Superman builds houses, meets with the UN to give speeches, visits terminally ill kids and orphans, and otherwise does charity work.
The only difference between Gotham and North Korea is Bruce's charities and outreach projects.
Wondie is a diplomat at the UN and regularly advocates peace and international cooperation on conflict resolution, Flash builds houses and does charities, the Green Lanterns all do charities, and almost all the JL or JLA scientists do humanitarian research.

Hell, Martian Manhunter pitches in at Christmas all over the world.

Marvel on the other hand is more about the common man superhero rather than the global leader superhero. Cap, Stark, Peter, and most other Avengers do charities. The saner mutants tend to be advocates for their own minority as a whole, Luke Cage helps a lot of New York inner city youth, Banner tends to spend his more cerebral time, especially as Gray Hulk, doing research for the improvement of man as well as helping out in third world countries.

In general, DC heroes are just more larger than life and accomplish more. By contrast, most Marvel characters have time-consuming day jobs or are slightly mentally ill or fairly poor themselves. I guess compare the guy who volunteers at a soup kitchen to Jimmy Carter.

>America is the biggest danger to peace
Since the end of WWII, we're actually living in a fairly peaceful span of human history.
You're looking at things through your own distorted lens.
But the average lifespan has increased drastically the world over.
Quality of life has risen greatly the world over.
And that 'semblance' of peace was brought about by the US and it's unique position after WWII.
Not that it isn't responsible for it's own bullshit, like toppling governments that get in it's way and allowing nonsense that suits it's foreign policy goals (drug cartels, authoritarian dictators).
But overall, thins are better.
Unless you live in Syria or Al Anbar province.
Then not so much.

Yeah that's why he feels guilty. He was sucked into the firestorm matrix at the end of Trinity War, missed out on Forever Evil entirely and Grodd smashed the shit out of Central City.

It took the Rogues to fend off the crime syndicate and when the Flash returned the city was all like "Why weren't you here?"

He is actually seeing a shrink and every time she turns her back or blinks, he runs outside and cleans up / repairs the city. He feels really guilty.

The character progression was supposed to be a "you can't save everyone" and "it's not your fault", but the writer doesn't quite pull it off.
