With Great Power
I have often referred to the Ben Parker rule of Great Powers: With Great Power comes Great Responsibility. What used to be a semi-obscure reference to Spider-Man became mainstream after the big movies by Sam Raimi. Anyhow, I still use the reference, but this figure is good for illustrating the concept and Spidey's limitations:
What does this say? Spidey lacks good intel. Well, sort of. He can sense danger, if not past behavior. Still, an interesting set of comparisons. Thanks to "I love Charts" website, I can geek out to Venn diagrams (and others).
