This reminds me of the time I watched an episode of CSI Miami. They depicted a solar eclipse as taking place so suddenly and lasting so briefly, people were shouting "Oh my GOD!" and were so distracted they were totally oblivious to someone being strangled to death just feet away while their backs were turned.

Yeah, like solar eclipses take place without anyone knowing they're coming, and they always take about a minute to pass while provoking so much murmuring that unseen thrashing of limbs and gasps can't be heard.

I posted on another message board asking about it (it was my first viewing of the show), and someone told me it was best to view the show's stories as parodies.

Or as a really bad comedy

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
