    Clark wants us to be better. He wants us to change. He does so via leading by example. Fearing him would just make him more of what we're used to: a white (or passing, but the public likely just considers him white) man with all the power in the universe getting away with whatever he wants because he's above the law...I think Clark needs to stand up when he sees injustice, but someone with his immense power and role in the world should be responsible with how he applies himself...
    THANK YOU!! This is exactly right. When people say Superman should be an everyman, they mean that Clark views himself as a person subject to the laws and mores of society just like everyone else and not as god-king of Metropolis.
