    Good idea never thought of Motercross outfits. Put on that with a football helmet and jeans/gloves/boots and your basically zombie proof

    It really annoys me when movies depict law, safety and military forces (police, firemen, soldiers, etc) as just stupid, useless and totally incompetent.
    This happens a lot in super hero movies but also in movies where the hero is/was a special forces, secret agent, super soldier, etc.
    Those trained cops, soldiers, etc are just there to get shot or run away or shoot 200 shots and always miss the target while the hero can easily deal with them 20 at a time...

    Chainmail and a helmet whenever you got out for a snack. No need to fear the zombies' bites anymore. The mediocre rec 3 is actually the only title I can think of, where people actually have the idea of taking medieval body armors to move around safely.
    About the "evil government" thing, that's what really bothers me about the Iron Man movies. The guy can totally provide everything the world needs in terms of energy and artificial intelligence, yet he doesn't because aliens (litteraly). He wants to ensure the defense himself, but that only gets everyone in immediate danger. By the way, he actually built most of his tech with public money and yet, refused to deliver them when finished. The guy's not only a pretentious megalomaniac who treats women like animals, he's actually blocking the path to the world's progress because he thinks that makes him look cool.

    About the "superheroes don't kill" trope :

    Batman hanging a mental patient, Batman No.1, 1940.
    Yeah, it's totally rubbish and a cheap writer trick, considering that superheroes have always killed their foes. Not only when necessary, there's a recent batman comics where he actually gets laid while thieves are burning alive in the background.

    That's actually something I like about Mad Max Fury Road. Even the most regular, nameless grunts, show good skills at what they do and are a decent match to the actual heroes.

    Remember that time Bucky Barnes fell off a moving train down the side of a mountain and just hurt his arm?
