    Smile comic books question #12

    In the sentence below, what does "vaunted mettle" mean?

    When I brought Superman to Apokolips, it was to test his vaunted mettle.

    Re: comic books question #12

    vaunted = praised; boasted about
    mettle = quality of courage/strength of spirit

    so:
    positively = his praised courage

    negatively =his boasted about courage
