Conversations Between Superheroes
#1 Discussing the complexities of the inner character of a superhero
Spiderman: Hulk Smash! Hulk Smash! (as he is
smashing toys together)
The Flash: Hulk is a bad guy.
Spiderman: No, he's a good guy.
The Flash: Well, sometimes he's bad.
Spiderman: Yeah, but he's good too. Hulk Smash!
#2 Discussing superhero attire
The Flash: Hmm...what superheroes wear belts?
The Flash and Batman do.
Spiderman: Superman does, too.
The Flash: Oh yeah, you're right.
#3 Discussing superpowers
The Flash: I'm so fast.
Spiderman: Yeah, but you can't fly.
The Flash: YOU don't fly!
Spiderman: I know. I shoot webs.
(then both proceed to make swishing noises pointing their fingers to shoot webs)
When I overhear these conversations, I'm reminded what Seinfeld said. Something like, "Superman, Batman, these weren't fantasies when you're a little boy. These are career options."
