    When the Supers get banned by the government, all the villains will decide to take a break too.

      Be careful what you say to your admirers. They might just turn against you.

        If you don't exercise, you get fat - even when you're a superhero.

        When you work in the insurance business, you can't be honest to your clients or else you'll get fired.

              It's almost beyond all rational belief, but you can have a living mother in a Disney film.

              I'm sorry, I was just trying to save your life by stopping that train from falling off the rails. If you're going to sure me for that, I guess I'll just leave the train alone next time, and we'll see what happens.

                  When the evil robot is destroyed and has no reason to explode, it WILL explode. The few moments between robot falling over and the KABOOM are like purgatory.

                    In a movie full of both normal and supernatural people of all ages and experience fields, the neighbors' kid on a bike will give the most philosophical quote in this movie -mind you, and almost ANY movie.

                      Masks will stick to your face with nothing to keep them there, and they'll never fall off even when you're doing complicated super hero moves.

                      A mask that covers the area surrounding your eyes will be enough to fool anyone.

                          If you have superhero powers, they will have an ironic tie-in with your personality.

                              No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back into jeopardy again. I guess that can get very tiring.

                                Don't get so caught up in your evil villain monologue that you forget to finish off your opponent.

                                  Go listen to police radio when you're no longer wanted as a superhero. It's completely safe and no-one will find out about it.

                                  Commanding the target to 'Freeze!' doesn't always work in the cops' favor.

                                      If your cat is stuck in a tree, walk in front of a speeding car, and delay a super hero by asking him to get the cat down.

                                                      The ability to gain superpowers is genetic. The specific superpowers of your parents, however, are not genetic.

You see such things all the time - sharks getting baby-sharks that can not swim but fly instead, or eagles with hatchlings that catch flies with extremely long tongues.

It's like riding a bycycle and no one will ask about it.

That's a nice move to show your appreciation and encourage the hero to try and save more people.
