First of all you've misread my point. I didn't even say Supes good morals and him being raised right had anything to do with it. Allow me to explain.
I don't know your first name so I'll just use Riv as a name. You're given godlike power and guess what comes with it. Riv can now hear the cry of every screaming child in Africa. Each one that's dying in childbirth. Each one that dies due to being malnourished. Now extend that to every country in the world. How would Riv cope with that?
Would you just go "Oh well I am just gonna do some work at a newspaper company while 100,000 children die today". And probably all of the people who are about to be beheaded and he can hear the heartbeat and can sense the horror they are feeling.
Riv I can tell you right now if that happened to me you, McAbe or anyone on this Earth we'd go mental. I'd say most people would kill themselves within days.
Now that's what I am saying with a a comic book psyche. Superman is given godlike power but he isn't given a human like psyche to cope with it is he? He's not constantly thinking about each person whimpering and dying is he? He can hear them but he can shut it out due to having as I said a comic book psyche.
Whereas Sentry can't as he has a human like psyche where he hears every cry and feels obliged to help but he can't.
And if you have read Sentry's work you would know that CLOC is deliberately programmed too only tell Sentry about 1 incident at a time so Sentry deliberately doesn't think about it himself.
Because when he did last time this happened. CLOC was told by Tony to flood Roberts mind with thoughts, which would be like as if he was hearing it but as I mentioned CLOC usually wouldn't flood his mind.

Him being being "raised right and having morals" had nothing to do with what I am talking about at all. Because I wasn't talking about whether Sentry was raised properly. We know Robert was a drug addict as a child but that's about it.
So yeah in short his morals and being raised up right weren't what I was speaking of.

Well, first off, Riv is fine, though you can feel feee to call me Lenny if you like.
Second, That scenario is no different other than scale, to what many people face all the time.
If i were President, every time i relaxed, is time i could spend trying to stop suffering and death at home and abroad.
If i were a police man, every crime i stopped, i'd know there were hundreds of others i wasnt stopping.
Just 2 examples.
I see the point you're making, i just dont agree with it.
Pre DCnu Superman actually monologued about his ability/inability to be everywhere and do everything (specific comic escapes me).
His upbringing is what let him see that, despite all that god like power, he really is just a man.
It's clear we openly disagree so it's probably best to just leave it there, I'll only say a couple of more things.
The president knows he could save people but he can't hear them which is what it focuses on.
If you were a Policeman yeah you would be aware of other crimes. But you wouldn't hear them, see them would you, that's again the point I am making they can both hear what is going on on the entire world. Whether it's in a forest in Malaysia or suburban London.
Sure Superman did act that way but like I am saying Sentry's psyche which in my opinion is a human one is that he can hear them and it drives him insane. He doesn't just say he realizes he can't save everyone so he wont. He has to save everyone but as we know CLOC is programmed. This explains my position a bit more.
Also apologies if my message sounded rude. Never intended for it to be so.
What I am saying is a person with a human brain wouldn't muse about the fact that he can't save everyone then carry on in his day. He would constantly have the death throes of millions on his mind. And we wouldn't be able to say "ah well were not fast enough to stop it." We'd go insane.

Dont worry, i dont care if i offend you.
I came in here to goof around with LoB, who has a good sense of humor.
While i have TI on ignore, i'm preeeeetty sure from the way he keeps posting directly after me that his comments have been less constructive than insulting, yes?
I see nothing directed his way asking about his human nature as to why he follows me around the board attacking me, which tells me a bit about YOUR human nature.
Basically, Professor, thats the way it is, January 19, 2015.
LoB isn't here, as you know.
I am pretty sure you can't resist and read his posts, else you wouldn't bother replying.
TI has an personal interest in this thread as a House of El member, so he is not following you, on the contrary, you post here because of TI not because of LoB, that is just an cheap excuse, as LoB isn't here for a month and you care too much about TI posts, which I never mentioned because I was talking about you.
So now I know you human nature, thanks. I don't need more.
Riv thinks he is fooling people. TC you saw right through it as did I. Its obvious Lob isn't here, nor does Riv have anything to add to the House of El since his primarily role has been on HC and here to piss Abi and myself off. Riv's a worthless fcking troll.
Wow, you're just as biased as can be aint ya, Professor?
Its good to know though. Unlike TI at least you've straight up said how you feel about me.
As to posting in this thread, i'm a Superman fan and i'll post in any Superman thread that interests me. I dont think anyone's invented a feature on boards that prohibits people from posting in certain threads, outside of the mod forums, which are private.
If i have anything i think is worth adding, be sure i'll post in this thread again, kay?
