Waterboarding doesn't have shit on face-hooding.
He assaults a uniformed police officer in broad daylight while obviously armed to the teeth, to the complete uninterest of every passing New Yorker. Blade is so comfortable with committing felonies that he doesn't even bother hiding the officer's badge. When the guy refuses to talk, Blade pulls out a gigantic pistol. Karen, valuing human life, tries to stop Blade from blowing his brains all over New York's already disgusting sidewalks, and the bad guy escapes during the distraction. Blade, now inconvenienced, does this:

"Grrr, I can't believe that asshole got aw-- oh, shit, is that a Sbarro?"
Even though his continued survival relies on complete secrecy, he is the loudest, craziest man in New York. And that's a high bar.
This is a world where the evil vampires secretly control almost everything. Does Blade care? No. He even takes the time to remove his sunglasses and berate Karen for not being vampire woke while the crowd mills about him, the gun from all of five seconds ago immediately forgotten. Lucky for Blade, this is also a world where people see a man with a gun and a goddamn sword assault a police officer and don't even think to so much as tweet about it.
No Superhero Follows FAA Regulations Designed To Save Lives
Air traffic control (ATC) is brought to you by the Federal Aviation Administration, a government agency with one very important job: enforcing a host of regulations designed to prevent mid-air collisions. The FAA usually does a good job, but superheroes make safe skies impossible. Birds damage planes -- just ask Tom Hanks. Erratic humans decked out in armor would annihilate them.
Don't even get us started on humans in bird armor.
Part of ATC's job is to check in with pilots via radio. Superman doesn't fly around with a headset on, and he's too small to track on radar, so no one has any idea where the hell he is, or where he's going. If Green Lantern gets distracted by how awful his movie is, this could happen:
What The Incredibles didn't show was that engine failing and the plane plummeting toward the ground.
This is why all civilian pilots have to file flight plans with the FAA before take-off. That way, ATC can warn them of other planes in their path, and coordinate the whole thing. But Batman doesn't file a flight plan when he busts out the Batwing. Airports are restricted airspace for a reason. The President is a moving no-fly zone, and Wonder Woman's invisible jet could meet a Patriot missile if she flies too close to Mar-a-Lago. The FAA also sets standards for air speed. Superman can only fly 200 knots over land, so he doesn't smash windows by blasting through the sound barrier. There's even an entire list of regulations about avoiding thunderstorms. You know, the kind Thor causes just about every single time he flies.
Ryan Lichtenstein makes a weird, progressive kid's show you can watch here. Or follow him on Twitter.
