@Sagretti: I think main characters can be Mary Sue's if they don't have any character problems at all and are never in risk of any actual danger.Superman is kind of unique though, because most of his problems and risks aren't exactly apparent. At the begginning of the comic, his risk was being exposed as Clark Kent and trying to balance a personal life with his superhero life, but he was never in harm's way when it came to battle. Later on Kryptonite was introduced, and even later foes like Apocalypse and Bizzaro presented Superman with physical dangers. Ultimately even when he won the fights though, his overcaring nature is an often looked-over character flaw that prevents him from ever putting a permananent stop to any of his enemies. Even Superman would have been a Mary Sue if at the end of each fight when he had the upperhand he just bumped off anyone that opposed him, he'd run out of enemies very quickly, and even most of his fights would end much quicker if the fight started with him looking at the opponent's head and explodiating it with his laser eyes. :P*grabs a mop and bucket and cleans up everything that was geeked on*
