Heroes were considered accountable under the old system and would be hunted by the police if they killed or hurt people (this happened to Spider-Man quite a few times, e.g. when he was suspected to have killed Gwen Stacy, usually until he proved his innocence and caught the real perp).
> Not at can you be held accountable when you never even show up to answer questions? When you always run away or beat up the law. Normal people need to go and answer police questions...but our unaccountable heroes just web them up...crack a joke and go on their merry way....suuuuurrreeee...thats accountability.

The situation superheroes was quite similar to that of normal citizens who find themselves persecuted for crimes they did not commit (cp. e.g. "The Fugitive"). And, since we are using Spider-Man as an example, the situation is not really changed by the SHRA because unregistered-by-OMD Spider-Man still is no more accountable than he was before. The fact that Spider-Man is not registered did not lead to a serious effort to arrest him. Apparently that would only happen if Spider-Man was suspected of a serious crime - so no change.

No it;s the same as asking a bunch of gun toting vigilanties who have never held themsleves accountable to the same laws of the common man. Sure they general do good things...but really they are som much better then us that us silly normal p[eople should bow down and be grateful...not make them abide by the same laws as us because they a soooo divine....please.....
