A Young Justice Thought
Most superheroes do have superpowers. If you look at the original Justice League lineup, there's only one guy that doesn't (I count being an alien or Atlantean with super strength and hydro or telekinesis as superpowers even if it's normal for their species) and then the vast majority of people to join after that did as well.
So like, when Robin entered the scene as the first sidekick, I know the JL probably wasn't thrilled about a nine year old fighting crime, but they probably assumed he had like a really badass superpower or something, you know. "Oh, he's probably invulnerable or has a healing factor or something. I mean, it's still messed up that Bats is exposing a child to that kind of psychological trauma, but there's no way he would endanger a fourth grader with no superpowers by letting him fight crime."
So like, imagine their surprise when one of them actually met Robin.
Superman: He's literally just a kid.
Wonder Woman: I don't understand.
Superman: He's an actual baby. He doesn't have any powers, Diana!
Green Lantern: But he can fly, right?
The Flash: He has no powers at all?
Superman: Zilch! Nada! Normal kid!
Martian Manhunter: Is this normal on your planet?
Green Lantern: Is he secretly an adult with a growth deficiency or something?
Superman: He is a nine year old child that's really good at acrobatics. That's it. Batman took him to fight the mob.
Wonder Woman: ... I'm gonna kill him.
Superman: Wait, Diana!
One Year Later
Green Arrow: You let Batman do it! At least mine is a teenager.
Superman: Okay, first of all, I have never let Batman do anything, so jot that down...

Oh boy I can’t wait for James Gunn to make a sequel/reboot of the Justice League called The Justice League where Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash, and Aquaman get either captured or get unceremoniously killed by Brainiac in the opening so it’s up to Mr. Miracle, Plastic Man, Zatanna, Shazam, Fire, Black Lightning, and Rocket to save the day!

Regardless whether you like the film or not, everyone should keep in mind why the Snyder Cut being released is so important.
Not because it’s a “4 hour superior Justice League” but because Zack Snyder’s daughter died, he went off the film to grieve (VERY understandably so), and then Joss Whedon came in and tore his film to absolute shreds while harassing the cast and crew to horrific extents during reshoots.
If you like or dislike the film, that’s perfectly all right, but EVERYONE should look at this and see what a victory it is for Zack Snyder, his family and the cast and crew of the film.
