Looking over the HW core rules, something struck me. Could somebody
conversant with the rules go through the following keyword descriptor
paragraphs and tell me how these characters would be built:

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to
leap tall buildings in a single bound! "Look, up in the sky, it's a
bird! It's a plane! No, it's Superman!" Yes, Superman, strange visitor
from another planet with powers far beyond those of mortal men.
Superman! Who, disguised as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent, wages a
never-ending battle for Truth, Justice, and the American Way!

"Criminals are a cowardly, superstitious lot." Traumatized as a boy from
witnessing his parents' murder, young Bruce Wayne used his vast fortune
to hone his physical and mental abilities to the absolute peak of human
perfection. He is universally acknowledged as the greatest detective to
have ever lived. Likewise, he is a master of several martial arts and
weapons, an accomplished scientist in many fields, and sufficiently
skilled in disguise and acting to pass all but the most diligent of
expert scrutiny. His wealth encompasses multinational corporations and
has been used to finance the most extensive and complete anti-crime
laboratory on the planet. His equipment includes the Batcar and a wide
variety of gadgets that he puts to use in the field.
