If you’ve upgraded to Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10) and you’re using the default settings, each time you start typing in Spotlight (to open an application or search for a file on your computer), your local search terms and location are sent to Apple and third parties (including Microsoft).
When writers have superheroes ponder these moral quandaries like “is it okay to mindwipe rapists and batman” or “is it okay to build a spy satellite and spy on the justice league” or “is it okay that we launched the hulk in space” or “are we allowed to commit genocide to save our planet?”
the idea is that we as readers are supposed to make a choice about whether or not we can still call these characters heroes
the problem is, in the case of most of these illuminati characters, we’ve already seen them spend years doing horribly evil bullshit like orchestrating orewellian registration acts and cloning gods and banishing people into space and hoarding items of immense cosmic power
so it becomes less of a situation of “can we still consider these characters heroes?” and more of a “if you’re not gonna read up past phil 101 utilitarianism can you just stop, please?”
the only reason these characters are still heroes is because you tell us that they are while they are making these terrible, morally bankrupt choices
