"Automatically attracting supervillains" is a trope that Powernaut 
Comics is probably not going to outgrow any time soon.  However, the 
current series seems to be avoiding property damage in the neighborhood.

The soldiers presented a pathetic but inspiring spectacle. The
hospitals were crowded with sick and wounded; the walls were
gradually crumbling under incessant shell fire, yet that garrison
of heroes remained undaunted.

It was as Buck said, "just as if they had been Americans."
