    when are we gonna be considered super heros

    superman had the strengh of ten men,
    how much is that really?

    if the average mans bench press( non athlete) is 50-60 lbs
    than for us to be superheros with super strengh is bench 500-600lbs

    I know I will never fly but batman couldnt either and he was a super hero

    but when do we become considered super heros with super strengh?

    where is the line drawn?

    Im thinking more of classification,
    If you can lift the weight can you have the title

    i dont think they would be classified as a superhero just because they can lift that amount of weight. they need to have more talent then just lifting. i bet a lot of "superheros" couldnt even bench 400. so i dunno.. its a tough call. when you can use your strength for good causes... saving a city... hold up the earth.. then maybe you will be considered a superhero otherwise.. you have awesome strength!

    see piddles when the word superhero comes across the only word you hear is super. heroism is what makes some respectable, not the ability to be extremely heroic

    Lmao! I think superman had more than the strength of 10 men. Remember in superman 3 or whatever, he picked up all of the world's nukes and threw them to the sun? 10 strong men wouldn't be able to pick up 1 nuke.

    Superman must of had the strength of more than 10 men judging by some of the things he lifted. But just because you had the ability wouldn't necessary make you a superhero. Supervillains have ability too. I guess to be a superhero you'd have to have some exceptional ability and use it in a heroic fashion. I suppose a human could become a superhero since Batman wasn't really superhuman, just an exceptional physical and mental heroic specimen with a vast amount of resources.

    Hey, this reminds me of a comicbook I read when I was in junior high about Batman. In it he fought Superman and beat him. Can you believe that? Ah...too bad I don't read comic books anymore. lol.

    there are a bunch of guys that had no super powers
    but relied on strengh and brains

    I found a batman picture and came up with the idea that anyone who put the time in could be a super hero

    and I dont think it would have to be on a global level cause it would be virtualy impossible

    besides...............
    two children fighting in a feild,
    you walk over and the bigger bully runs off ,
    you reach a hand out to the smaller one to help him up
    "tah-dah" instant superhero

    some acts dont have to involve saving the world
