Superhero Economics

Flipping through some old comics on my shelf it occurs to me that Superman goes through a lot of shirts. Just rips them right off. Thing is, that’s not a really overwhelming sign of strength. Hulk Hogan used to do that when I was a kid and if that’s the measure of an alien who can carry airplanes, it’s kind of depressing. He’s supposed to be super fast, why not just make the effort to unbutton the shirt? Just as quick, and you don’t have to go out and buy a new shirt. No wonder Batman can outsmart him.
