    Meh.

    In regards to the poll and actors having a say in their characters, Joss Whedon is pretty receptive to his actors’ desires. I recently watched Avengers with his commentary playing, and apparently a lot of the things in it were influenced by the actors. Having Pepper in the movie was Robert Downey Jr’s idea so they could continue the relationship and character development from Iron Man 2. Chris Hemsworth didn’t want Thor’s stuff to center on his relationship with Odin in the film, so Odin was barely mentioned.

    To answer Rodrigo’s question, the nickname “The Man of Tomorrow” stems from the fact that Superman’s strength in the early days was because he had come from a “planet who’s inhabitant’s physical structure was millions of years advanced of our own”, to quote Action Comics #1.
