Superman having an alien origin causes many people to instantly brush him off, even if he's more average in terms of human interaction.
Thank you, Coco. This post is a Christmas Miracle.
We've come to a point where people actually think someone is insulting Batman by saying what he actually is. He's a goddamned human. And people say that's his appeal, but then they expect him to do anything and everything and beat anyone. He can't be a representation of a skilled human and an invincible cosmic hero at the same time. Bloody pick one!
