Astérix, also, is always able to resort to the magic potion to get him out of a spot of bother. Tintin cannot do this, and has to rely on his wits. This is an advantage that Tintin has over the 'superhero comic books' - he has no super powers, and can't overcome anyone by using any such powers.

That is not entirely true, because it was made very clear from the beginning, that with or without the magic potion, Asterix is undoubtedly a very clever fellow. So many of the problems are solved by his wits and not by some magical super strength.
