That is not a hard concept to grasp, and no matter how 'tired' you are of that formula, it is simply basic recognition of what makes a person GOOD rather than EVIL.

So no... not even a little bit... not even at first.

Superman would NEVER find it amusing that people were afraid of him.
Do think anyone with even a moderately dark sense of humor is evil?

I swear, this forum never ceases to amaze me...
No, I don't envision him saying that cowering innocents. But, maybe something more like walking up to them with a confident smile, helping them up and saying with a light chuckle: "Chillax eveyone, I'm a good guy" and then flying away.

Now let me guess how you'd have him respond "Oh God, what have I done?! They're afraid of me! I must go brood over the awful tragedy of it all!"


...and when you find Hop Toad, give him five pieces of gold for his entertaining jest!
