Default 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...

I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.

"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
