In Superman Returns, Supes stops a plane from crashing and sets it down gently in a baseball stadium (in the middle of a game, I might add), after checking to make sure the passengers are okay, he flies off, leaving the plane in the middle of the field! Now, even if the plane wasn’t suffering from a melted tail and missing wing, there’s no way it could have been flown out of there under it’s own power as there’s not enough room for it to take off. So how did they get the plane out of there? Not to mention how did they handle the jet fuel that was probably leaking out of the thing? Then there’s the whole matter of the game itself, how would the MLB handle that?
This kind of thing always seems to happen in superhero films. The superhero plunks down something he’s snatched from certain death where ever’s convienent and then leaves. Who handles that (and when you’re dealing with something like a train being set down on an interstate and unionized labor, I can imagine the bickering that would be going on to determine who did what)? And what about where the superhero and the villian proceed to beat the crap out of one another and take out half the city in the process? Who fixes all that and, more importantly, who pays for all that? Given that insurance companies all have riders saying they don’t have to pay in case of war or terrorism, I’m sure that they’d add one if superheroes were around, so they wouldn’t have to pay out every time Spiderman and Green Goblin go at it. If the government picks up the tab, how freakin’ high would the taxes have to be to cover it?
