    Default Clark Kent/Kal-El Superman Appreciation 2021

    At the end of the year, all Appreciation threads are closed and new threads for the coming year are put in place.

    Appreciation threads are for just that - Appreciation. Not for debate, not for slamming and not for bringing other characters down by comparison.

    This thread is for the Appreciation of the one and only Superman!

    Commence appreciating!

    The Ed McGuinness version of Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman is an all-time favorite...

    McGuinness's Lois and Superman are underrated.

    The entire Superman board is arguably his thread.

    Surprisingly, most people in the DC universe took it well and the villains never attacked the Planet (at least not until where i am, i still haven't read all Bendis run) wich is what everyone was expecting.

    I think Bendis just wanted to contrast it with Truth where everything that could've gone wrong, did.

    He's going to super fistbump the hand at the creation of the multiverse which will put his identity back in the bottle, so to speak.

    Technically does this count for any Clark Kent?

    Perch hits the nail on the head on how the whole "The American Way being outdated" is a weak and annoying take. And yes I'm that BBally he mentioned.

    No matter how many reboots, new origins, reinterpretations or suit redesigns. In the end, he will always be SUPERMAN

    Lol no, that video is totally wrong. Superman should have strong and clear values, and he should proclaim them. But those values mentioned don't make sense for Superman. Clark Kent as a journalist might worry about truth I guess, but not really. Or in other words, it's not the true priority for him. It's a condition, but not a value. Privacy should trump truth. He wants to spread awareness, which is different from truth.

    Justice is a vague value, but sure I guess. Everyone disagrees on what Justice means. Is Affirmative Action justice? Some would say yes, others would say no. Kind of hard for a superhero to clarify who he is when he says he wants "Justice".

    Freedom? Does he tho? I think he would value empowerement, not freedom. He wants everyone to have the power to improve their lives, but freedom doesn't really lead to this.

    In my opinion Superman's values are Empowerement and Responsibility. Heck, let's just simplify it and say, "Give great power, and acknowledge great responsibility".
