By which, I mean, what if, instead of creating a law against using powers, actual laws that are on the books were actually enforced. If superheros did something illegal, hold them acountable. It seems like a lot of the justification for the law came from doing dangerous things that were either illegal already or close to it, while a person, such as Cloud ( who wants to go for a cruise in the scky would not have been breaking the law. How much of what "super hero's" already do is illegal to begin with, wihout any act, if certain laws were just upheld?

I can accidentally blow up a city block, but if no one knows who I am or even that I have powers who's to know it was me once I go home and just take my mask off. Its that level of unaccountability that makes the act necessary.

Please no one hurt me for referencing DC, but in the book identity crisis they give the reasoning behind wearing the mask. The heroes have alot of enemies and if they were to reveal their identities to anyone especially the public its like putting a bullet hole in the head of all of their loved ones. Superman levels cities almost every time he gets in a big fight yet the public trusts them enough after all the disasters that universe has had so why does the marvel U have such little faith in their heroes?

I mean if the public needs to know the identitties of the heroes they should publicly tell them other things as well, like that green goblin and bullseye are in colorado, or that if sentry snapped he could do more damage then any other normal villain.

Also this was just me but in civil war when stark announced he was ironman and an alchoholic, does anyone else think the public should have been more concerned with that fact? I mean if I were a civilian I would have wanted him to remove the Ironman suit for good. Remember the public does not know his drinking history they just know hes an alchoholic

In the DCU the heroes are much more coordinated than the Marvel heroes- Superman can depend on STAR Labs, Cadmus the Green Lanterns and such to help clean up. Then you have the professional doctors like Mid-Nite who provide direct assistance. it's not hard to believe that Superman lifts more rocks and debris than supervillains.

That's where the Initiative fails in some way- the team does need Bullseye to catch some heroes, as only he can counterbalance Karla as well as to keep the others on edge.

Yet he's Tony Stark, the man f the moment.
