1. Stop Rampaging Robots or Save an Old Man?

In downtown Metropolis, a squadron of evil robots is robbing a bank. If you don't stop them immediately, they'll tunnel into the earth and escape.

On the other side of town, a 90-year-old man is choking on a jelly bean. If you don't rush to his assisted living facility and give him the Heimlich, he will die.

6. Save a Falling Construction Worker or Fundamentally Alter Our Nation's Health Care System?

A construction worker is falling off a skyscraper to their certain death. Assuming this happens once per day and you fly by and scoop up every falling construction worker, you'll save 365 people per year.

Meanwhile, inadequate access to health care kills 45,000 people per year in America.

8. Destroy Doomsday or Run for Office?

Brainiac is plotting to revive the rampaging alien-clone, Doomsday. You can infiltrate Brainiac's living spaceship and destroy the still-gestating monster.

But will that fix Metropolis's crumbling public schools? You could run for school board president, provide an influx of Kryptonian technology, and offer a brighter future for generations of students.

9. Put Out Yet Another Orphanage Fire With Your Breath or Declare Yourself Leader for Life?

Yes, there's yet another Malaysian orphanage fire. Is this a ploy by the villainous Metallo? No, it's just the sad state of the world. You could use your freeze breath to put out the fire.

But you could also declare yourself the Forever Sovereign of Malaysia and root out the structural problems that are causing both the fires and the large number of children to become parentless in the first place.
