Re: Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El Characterization - Part 1
1. How is any of what you said him being 'amused'?
2. The public doesn't go 'ahhhhh' and then 'awwww'... he's never considered a 'harmless teddy'... he's considered a hero, a symbol of hope and a great man...
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
