Batman use Sound based attacks to hurt Superman when he fight him.

Venom doens't trigger Spiderman spider sense, he also lost his spider sense at one point forcing him develop his own spider based martial art.

Can villains be able to trigger a false alarm or silence this sense to create a more interesting story.

Yes. It has happened a few times in the comics.

I didn't read anything after Mistborn. The rabid evangelism by his fans left me disappointed once I actually read it. Contained a few interesting ideas, story beats, was otherwise pretty average. He is most certainly not a generational talent.

You're right though, impressive output.

Seems like a nice guy, willing to make fun of himself, take criticism. The ties to the Mormon church is worthy of continued criticism.
