Able To Bend Steel In His Bare Hands

As it used to say in the lead-in to the old Superman TV show that I watched regularly when I was a kid:
Announcer: Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!
Voices: Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!
Announcer: Yes, it's Superman, strange visitor from another planet, who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Superman, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands, and who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way.
Yes, truth, justice and the American way. Would that my country shared the values expressed in the poster.

Silencing the NRA would be ideal.
