The Green Lantern is a unique superhero because it's not that he's super that is his focus it's that he's a man. He's very human. That's his greatest strength and his greatest weakness.
People have called me Superman my whole life. In various sports that seems to be the common theme. My favorite superhero is actually the Incredible Hulk. He's the only superhero that can't die.
The media need superheroes in science just as in every sphere of life but there is really a continuous range of abilities with no clear dividing line.

People always come up to me now and say 'Watchmen' is the best superhero movie ever made.' I'm always saying 'That's super cool. That's nice of you to say.' But it happens now more and more and more than it did when it first came out.
There's no point in swanning through and being cool as a breeze in every scene. It's not really that interesting. Even if you're a superhero.
There aren't as many girl superheroes but there are cool ones. Banshee for instance.
Some of the greatest actors have turned superheroes into a serious business: Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson in 'Batman' Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart the first venerable knights of the X-Men who have now passed the baton to Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.
