The Greatest of them All
I will keep this short and to the point.
The greatest Super Hero of all-time is, without question, Mighty Mouse.
Consider a few things:
First of all, he's a mouse. When he went into a battle, he was always looking at a size disadvantage which affects everything from reach to raw power.
Secondly, he played during an era when the media did not cover super heroes the way they do now. A lot of of his deeds went unnoticed. Today, a super hero saves a village or colony and his face is everywhere. He's doing Anderson Cooper, not to mention Leno and Conan. The Mighty One did not go about his Super Hero-ly duties because he was looking for acclaim. Can the same be said for today's Super Heroes? Do we really know for sure?
Finally, and this is what makes it no-contest. Mighty Mouse could sing like Pavarotti. Go back and listen to the tapes. When he belted out, "Here I come to save the Day!" he always hit the note. And while opera may not be as popular as it was back in the day, his talent transcends.
