Tell that to fans of Bats.

A couple I can think of are the Jackal back in the '70s, who won every battle he had with Spidey despite having no superhuman powers and being a probably fortysomething college professor, and Hammerhead, whose metallic skull apparently protects his entire body from injury (to the point that his being at ground zero of a nuclear reactor exploding turns him into ethereal form rather than kills him).

I will. In a heartbeat. I have imminent respect for martial arts. In point of fact, that is how I make my living and I have practiced all over the globe. I will say it again: No amount of training can overcome bullet dodging speed and the sheer strength Spider-man exhibits--even during Conway's baffling runs. Not a knock on Batman. Not a knock on the Punisher. Personally I think it detracts from the ability to relate to these human characters when they are portrayed as holding their own with science-fictional characters and their impossible superhuman abilities.
