    Why is it That... Superman doesn't get a gun? He swore never to use his super powers to kill, but if he had a gun then his next encounter with Lex Luthor would be his last.

    Is it because we are all countees? I never thought about that before but i do get counted from time to time, but does that count? Does a count count? I shall worry about that all day until something more pressing comes along. You can count on that.
