I was thinking of this topic lately and I have short listed the following (with my limited knowledge. Please feel free to add more India: Hindi: Dharmendra, Sunny Deol (Hema malini will be very proud) Kannada: "Tiger" Prabhakar, Vishnuvardhan Telugu: Chiranjeevi,?? (I don't know his name but recently I saw him making a train go backwards just with his fingers....who is he?) Tamil: Rajinikanth, anyone else? Malayalam: Never seen any super heroes from this part (Y??)
Hollywood: Arnold, Tom Cruise
Please add anyone I might have missed. Also it will great if you can post some good proof (you tube video/Google video) showing their super human performance.
I'm curious what Kashyap means by "super hero" here, considering "cartoons" are now retroactively banned, and all of the examples in the initial post are actors. Who are generally much weaker than the characters they play in action movies. Are you talking about movie characters, or the actors who portray them?

Jim, Good Question Initially I was thinking of heroes who are not having any special powers or radio active blood but can do amazing stuff (like fighting with 10 guys and not getting hurt or only getting some scratches)...which you find a lot in Indian cinema. In Hollywood I can only think of Tom in MI series (he is not a specially gifted guy but he knows how to do amazing stuff....intially I was thinking they all go to some school for training)
But I posted without all the rules and Fred got me
