    Good one!

    Extension: If a superhero with a secret identity dies, and is outed, does the insurance company have the right to refuse payment on the grounds of having the risk misrepresented?

    I've long had a fanfic in mind about how one of the benefits of Avengers/JL membership is that they will assure the care of a member's family, even if that means falsifying the circumstances of a member's death.

    Regarding Cables documentation through judicious use of tine travel and psychic bullshit I've little doubt he can get one made for the modern era. I know he's used time travel to become a certified lawyer.

    Mistaken for, it was a source of contention between the two groups, also Thena's original name was Athena her father changed to avoid pissing off the mythological one.

    Why are the super villains the only ones who go to jail after a grudge fight? I get that they can be arrested for escaping jail or what ever. I remember reading a spiderman issue years ago, I cant remember which one. But The Shocker gets arrested for assault on Spiderman. Why didnt Spiderman get arrested for assault on The Shocker? I am pretty sure that Spiderman never went to court to testify.

    For that matter why arnt more super heroes arrested for assault? I mean they beat the living hell out of regular crooks and such.

    I also remember in an episode of Spiderman The Animated Series from the 90's in The Prowler episode the Kingpin's lawyer gets Hobbie released from prison because there was not proof he committed a crime. The police just found him webbed up on a lamp post. And since Spiderman and Mary Jane (who's purse he had stolen.) never testified he was released. Why doesnt this happen more often?

    Because, that their core, superhero comics are still children's morality plays.
