Forget Christopher Reeve, haven’t you heard that Ashton Kutcher is the Superman we should be raving about? The ‘Two and a Half Men’ star said in 2010: "It won't take very much, I'm telling you. It will not take much for people to hit the panic button. The amount of convenience that people rely on based on electricity alone. You start taking out electricity and satellites, and people are going to lose their noodle. But never fear, Super Ashton is here! “I'm going to be ready to take myself and my family to a safe place where they don't have to worry. All of my physical fitness regimen is completely tailored around the end of day. I stay fit for no other reason than to save the people I care about." And one time when he suffered a power failure at his home, he quickly sprung into action. “It was 20 below zero,” he recalled. “I got my guns out. We made a fire.” Mind-boggling stuff, Ashton! Somehow we think that an electrical fault and the end of the world are a little bit different, but okay.
