I’ve been doing some readings on Superman. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve dreamed of having a red cape so I could fly. Oh, yes I also wore my underwear on top of my tight pajama. I wanted to become invincible just like The Man of Steel. I also wished I had the X-ray Vision but I had naughty thoughts about that, ha,ha. For me, Superman embodied the “ideal” superhero. He was and is still my superhero.
Some people don’t like him that much though. The Boy Scout in a blue suit and red cape, Superman was someone I wished to be. Earth’s accidental savior, he was an alien who managed to hide his real superpower under a mild-mannered mask of Clark Kent. From the very beginning, it was clear he was destined his find his place on Earth. But it was also evident that Superman was just like us. He fell in love. He got hurt. He was betrayed. He had enemies, lots of them. But he also had a family who gave him the moral compass. He carried this great responsibility to keep our world safe from the numerous villains who wanted it destroyed.
I think we need a Superman today!
