I’m sure I’m just being a curmudgeon about this

I’m sure I’m just being a curmudgeon about this

In Justice League of America #15, Hal Jordan and John Stewart crush Lex Luthor’s “Kryptonian gauntlets” so he can’t use them on Superman.  Then they hold his arms out to his side and Hal (who’s always been a bit of a dick, after all) says, “Stop squirming.  You’re not getting loose until we feel like it.”  Then he says to Superman, “How about it, Superman, do we call this a wrap or do you still want a piece of him?”  Superman responds by bashing a helpless Lex Luthor so hard his stupid green armor disintegrates around him.

Sigh.  Remember when heroes did “heroic” things?  Shouldn’t Superman not act like a punk and a bully?  That’s what bullies do, Superman – beat on helpless opponents.  I get that it’s Lex Luthor, but he’s no longer a threat, and the Green Lanterns hold him down so Superman can get a shot in.

Is it too much to ask for Superman to set an example?  I guess.  This is why I don’t spend money on JLA.
