> > No, my issue is with the Avenger's reaction to it. Since when did the Avengers become Thor fanboys? That reaction was just so abhorrently *non*-heroic it was just sickening. They've got the fate of the world on the line and they just dropped it to gang-beat-down Superman?
> The Avengers have piled on powerful villains plenty of times in the past.
> I think you may be looking at it as different because it's Superman rather than Count Nefaria or someone you feel deserves it, but it's in character for either the Avengers or the JLA to pile on a villain who just knocked out one of their strongest. They're a team -- multiple heroes against a powerful solo foe is not an unusual thing.
Er, a pile-on when the "villain" is fresh and taking him on singly fails is far different than beating on a relatively weakened foe. My opinion, of course.
I could see it if Superman had been dealing with multiple Avengers and they weren't able defeat him any other way.
This just wasn't the Avengers that I love.
