Superman and Spiderman

Daniel Synder of “The Atlantic” and Sam Kirkland of “Poynter” write on how both Super-Man and Spiderman undermine the profession of journalism. While both costumed characters are portrayed in positive light for their crime-fighting exploits, they’re common disrespect for journalist rules such as committing fraud are consistenly downplayed. While I believe that both supers are being unethical in their reporting, I believe both their creators had the intention of portraying journalists in positive light by equating journalists as the equivalent of crime fighting in the real world.
