These are but a FEW of the reasons that the kids from Team Hades (not to mention their crotchetty old cartoonist) think that being a superhero just isn't worth it.
There's gonna be more.
As I said before, please forgive the Wall of Text, but it's necessary, not only for ME to express MY opinions, but, for me to shorten this chapter. I am editing and re-editing on the fly so this issue doesn't run a thousand pages with my Nerd Rage.

Say hello to old friends:
Kid Zeus and ThunderLizard you've seen.

In the middle panel are Swerve, Dreadnaught & Positron, formerly known as LongArm, Crush and Barrage. Formerly Chicago heroes who, after some 'issues' moved to St. Louis, MO and changed their heroic identities.
(Crush and Barrage were seen fighting Statuesque in her "Family Matters" section in issue 1)

The gent arguing with "Karen" is Visionary, a married superhero in NYC, usually paired with his wife, Blue Moon.

It certainly sucks when the public's attitude towards superheroes is like the one in Watchmen and The Incredibles!

That is a big part of it, but it's the little things that sting more, sometimes.
Worse than being ostracized or villainized sometimes is simply being taken for granted or having so sacrifice your life (or, rather livelihood), free time and joy for the sake of others without even a 'thank you' or consideration for what you're giving up/missing out on while doing for others.

Keep the deconstructions comin'!

I don't know if these are proper deconstructions so much as 'inconvenient truths' and The Other Side of the Story.
