Does Superman help rebuild the buildings he destroys...? Or...
All the many movies and comics I've seen him in he just destroys ...STUFF. Everything. The big meanie. Is this ever explained in the comics...? I've been wondering since forever ago!
In real life, he would probably rebuild the buildings, or more likely, try harder not to destroy any in the first place (if he could exist in real life).
However, in the comics, it doesn't matter. You can assume he rebuilds them in his "off" time, but the important thing is the power and destruction in the comics and movies.
The collateral damage (both material and human) brought and wrought by Superman and the rest of the super-heroes while doing their "jobs" as protectors and savior of mankind, is just too unimaginably unbearable. A stiff price to be paid? Not in the COMICS world. In real life...think again.
I don't know about Superman, but I remember a very funny Marvel Comics series from the late 80s/early 90s called "Damage Control" which was about a construction firm whose job was to clean up and repair the damage caused to New York City after every superhero battle, alien invasion, etc. It was an original idea for its time and very well done stuff.
I'll research that! It sounds funny. I know I'd be like... "Man, go back to Krypton, dude...stop wrecking our buildings!"
Well, imagine being the owner of the Baxter Building (where the Fantastic Four live), or the Daily Bugle (where Spiderman hangs out)...those are always under attack by somebody or other... I'd hate to be their insurance guy. "What, AGAIN?"
Superman's strength, invulnerability, speed, flight, microscopic-,x-ray-,& heat-visions, as well as his super-breath make him a rare example of a superhero who actually can clean up his messes (often while they happen).
of course that's boring to read/watch, so it's not what most people will remember about him.
