And that's how I would hope they approach MOS.
I also think it helps when you make the world of the hero reflect our world - issues, social attitudes and trends, wars etc etc.
It all helps towards making us feel like this isn't just a fantasy about some hero called Superman and some town called Metropolis - but a fantasy about what it would be like if we had a hero like that in our world today.
Superman: Don't be afraid.
Lois: I'm not. Helicopters, danger, go, go, go! Then we'll talk.
