Something's a little odd about the audio here, oh well, what else can you expect form the 40's.

SNAFUperman, education is important you dolt! Snafu teaches us the importance of studying your field manual.

Why is super man being all sneaky and pussy-footing around? He should just fly into the center of the fleet and unload. I mean he is bulletproof and nigh-invulnerable after all.

He could take out Japan in a few hours, fly to Germany, take out der fuhrer, and still have time to save the world from the red menace that evening.

Too bad he wasn't gifted with super-brains to go with everything else.

[nerd on] Superman became progressively more powerful as time went on. The whole 'leaps tall buildings in a single bound' was really all he could do to begin with, he couldn't fly. Ditto for his strength and invulnerability - he could lift a car and stop a single bullet but he couldn't stop an artillery shell or take out an aircraft carrier. That kind of shit only came in the Silver Age. [/nerd off]

More propaganda from Disney. Nice to hear actual German in a Disney movie, though.

And here is a true classic: Der Führer's Face, starring Donald Duck.

so is his intelligence inversely proportional to his super powers?

I think he could be read as an ongoing metaphor for US military strength as it relates to foreign policy wisdom.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

The retardedness of the Superman character is directly proportionate with his power.

Silence you!

Super-man can be really well written lots of times.

There are some good super-man stories out there.

That hardly alters the fact that the Superman character is really stupid, mainly because he's so incredibly powerful that the villains he need to fight also need to be super-powerful to the point of being ridiculous, or just happen to have kryptonite, which appears to be more common than lead because EVERYBODY seems to have it.

Good stories, bad character. Batman's better, both old campy Batman and the new Badass Batman.

isn't that what i said?

you are correct. batman kicks ass. movie wise, comic wise, character concept wise.

what sounds better at first glance: do-gooding alien with super powers, or insane genius vigilante?

you know its funny that the Japanese at least were smart enough to figure out that Clark Kent was superman, unlike retarded Lois lane.
