one thought: the idea of having a superhero be a mere human individual with great amounts of wealth and possessing technological skills/tools (aka Batman and Iron Man) is really an symbolic formation/extension of the freedom and power of writing: writing unhindered by constraints such as wealth (or plot constraints), elevating even mere humans to superheroes, using everyday language to enthrall audiences.
