Failing upwards


So in a world with Superman and other incredibly powerful superheroes who do general rescue work along with stopping crime, are people more foolish? If you have a reasonable suspicion that if you get in a jam a magical man will show up to save you, do you take bigger chances hoping for a bigger payoff?

And I figure your general visibility must coincide with your willingness to gamble on a super-rescue. If your dangerous failures make it to the general news, that must mean a greater chance for a hero to hear about it and come to your aid. So maybe you only take big chances if it would make big news on success or failure.
