I will say this of Super: it commits to its premise far better than Kick-Ass; if you thought the latter was violent, you haven't seen Rainn Wilson cracking someone's head repeatedly on a rock. But at least Kick-Ass was fun.
Emboldened by its indie-film trappings and the easily manipulated cheers of its festival-circuit audience, it luxuriates in and celebrates pointless violence and aimless vengeance. It's Taxi Driver as feel-good movie.
