Re: Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El Characterization - Part 1
Seriously... who the hell do you think Superman is?
VILLAINS find causing the fear of innocenct people amusing.
HEROES find causing the fear of innocent people disturbing.
That is not a hard concept to grasp, and no matter how 'tired' you are of that formula, it is simply basic recognition of what makes a person GOOD rather than EVIL.
So no... not even a little bit... not even at first.
Superman would NEVER find it amusing that people were afraid of him.
I mean, how would you even visualise that? People cowering in a corner after a display of strength, and then Superman laughing and saying 'Oh you silly humans'?
I swear, this forum never ceases to amaze me...
'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
