"Captain America gets rained on, too. The difference, I think, is that at some point he would go out and buy an umbrella."

I really enjoyed this bit of musing on a key difference between how Batman and Captain America deal with their manpain.

On a related note I think I've mentioned before that one of the things I'm really loving about The Flash is the comparative lack of angst and melancholy in Barry Allen's life, despite a super bleak backstory involving a murdered mother and incarcerated father. The series would be about one-tenth as enjoyable if The Flash mooched around like some tragic Batman, boo-hoo-ing about how he was a super powerful billionaire with a butler who probably brings him tea in bed in the morning if he asks.
