Heroes

I don’t like superheroes.  You have some extraordinary power, so you can beat the bad guys who don’t have any countervailing power.  Big deal.  

Superman particularly is extremely boring.  If you can travel faster than light to reverse time, then you’re pretty close to having divine powers.  What’s interesting about a straight-laced character like that? 

And that’s why God is boring.

It’s a lot cooler when you are a mere mortal like everyone else, but you beat the baddies through your human abilities.  

On that score, Batman may not be a superhero, but he is still cooler than any of his peers. 

This is also why Muhammad and Buddha are so much cooler than Jesus. 

Ah, but what if the baddies also have superpowers? 

Then we have a whole new ball game.

That’s why the Greek and Indian classics are cool.

You know what else would be cool? 

I think it would be cool to have dynamic duo of Moses and Hanuman kicking some arse.  Think about it.  One parted the sea, the other built bridge over it.  They are made for each other.

And whom would they fight?

All the evil imperialists, of course.
