    Something that always bugs me is first person narration. It needs to be set up right or else I'll spend enormous amounts of time worrying about it. It doesn't make sense if the character narrates stuff that he or she would have no way of knowing. Also, there was that one famous Superman story narrated by Batman where in his first person narration he's reacting to things as they happen. That should be a thought balloon. If it's first person narration, then Batman already experienced the story he's narrating--he shouldn't be re-acting in the moment. I'm still puzzling over that story--was it really just thoughts recorded on the page, even though it was lettered like diary entries; or did Batman have a voice recorder with him throughout the story so he could record his narration as it unfolded and then the tapes were transcribed later? I have the same problem with Captain's Log entries on Star Trek shows or the talking to the camera sessions in mockumentary style sitcoms.

    Wouldnt you think the public would give the man who fought Hitler, battled Gang and stopped the Red Skull dozens of time the benefit of the doubt. I mean do the police and public really think he is playing the long con so he can Rob First National for a few thousand bucks?
    While I get your point, that doesn't bug me. If the last 3 decades have taught me anything, it's that only horrible monsters seem to have unwavering fans. The public is all too eager to tear good people to ribbons at the slightest stumble.

    My problem is that people would jump ship over a mask, and at this point, it's been done and debunked too much. I'm glad Doc Ock/Superior Spidey got called out, but it still took way too long for it to be believable. When "good people" are torn to ribbons, it's almost always over damning evidence. Most fans are unwavering by nature, regardless of their idols' natures.

    Realistically, Spidey should be teflon and the most popular guy on the planet, and JJJ should be in a permanent state of destitution.
