Spider-man and President Bush
Mrs. Hey Man replied that those with power of a responsibility to help. (I am not allowed to reveal her true name under penalty of eye rolling.)
Spiderman often says the same thing, "With great power comes great responsibility." He learned this lesson when he refused to interfere and a villain he could have stopped later killed his Uncle Ben.
At first the robber didn't seem to have anything to do with Peter Parker's life... then wham! It hits home. Looking out only for onself can have lasting consequences. Even in comic books where people always come back from the dead as often as in soap operas, there is a saying, "Nobody stays dead but Uncle Ben." (Sometimes people say, "Nobody stays dead but Bucky and Uncle Ben." Bucky being Captain America's sidekick in the 40's. But it appears he may be back as the Winter Soldier. A hitman who staying in cryogenic stasis between missions.)
Likewise, Bush sees that if we don't intervene across the globe it will hit home. You can learn everything you need from comic books.
