The Superman Complex is actually a psychological state in which one has the belief that "nothing bad can happen to me".
As if THEY will never be the one to get in a car crash, or THEY'LL never overdose on a drug.
Common among teens and children.
The complex can vary from minor to severe.
As if he had a Superman complex, Jason would always pull the wildest stunts.
When you do something that makes you feel like a hero like superman. You saved them and feel great about it.
