Interestingly, every ultimate super-villain is unbeatable because of their level of intelligence (which is supreme but not godlike since their fatal flaw is always the pursuit of godlike knowledge and power), but the reason why every super-hero is the most powerful is because of how hard they can hit.

What does society then tell us through this narrative?

It is that the villain is the person who uses their intellect through their utmost potential. And the hero is the one who is most violent and hits the hardest in the face of the villain's intellectual superiority.

Society tells us that the most brilliant of us are the ones who are in opposition of social stability, and the most violent and righteous are the protectors of society. And yet, it is the most violent and righteous (police, military) who are the vanguard of the oppression of all human liberty. Even though knowledge has done nothing other than elevate the common human to a level in which they can oppose the oppressor.

I ask you, who really has the better chance of eliminating society's biggest ills, the police or the scientist?

Hero narratives are cleverly crafted lies in which society tries to convince us that our oppressors are our saviors. After all, even "Superman" (√úbermensch) is modeled after a concept wherein "the ideal superior man of the future" is someone who could "rise above conventional morality to create and impose his own values." Superman is the military industrial complex personified.

And people like Lois Lane are otherwise intelligent and aware "reporters" who are rescued on a daily basis by the hero, but are still not smart enough to recognize that hero for what he really is, despite the rather pathetic means by which he goes to hide his identity--simple spectacles.
