Summary: Superman or Green Lantern ain't got nothing on Sherlock Holmes
“Why do these things still litter our pavements when everyone uses a mobile?” Sherlock stared at the phone box as though it were a historical relic.
Not completely wrong, John thought to himself, but not quite as obsolete as Sherlock seemed to be implying.
Rather than chide Sherlock’s snobbery, he chose a more whimsical retort.
“Superman still needs a place to change.”
Of course. Sherlock’s selective, and sometimes infuriating, ignorance of popular culture. He thought about ways to explain, before realising that the Man of Steel was a mental prawn compared to Sherlock.
John had found his own superhero.
