Quote:I am really not a fan of the guy, so not sure if he was just being a smart alec or not with this one. If he is, than it is akin to the argument that video games turn people into more violent people and so on. Bad logic.
In regards to superheroes, Maher is mostly being facetious. I'm sure he doesn't care about superheroes a whit, but here, he's just using them as a strained metaphor. He's a comedian and you shouldn't take him too literally here. I agree with Maher about 75-80% of the time, but I'm not always crazy about how he delivers his message.
