Default Re: Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El Characterization - Part 1

I've been thinking of how they can probably make Supes more relatable, or at least understandable.

Everybody says
¨Oh, Superman's just a boyscout¨

That can be explained by Clark/Superman wanting to appease everybody, afraid of doing the wrong thing. Since he was a child, Clark was raised by the best parents you can ask it's understandable that he wants to uphold his image of being the good son in his parents eyes, especially after Jonathan's death. It shows why he always does the right thing, and why he's reluctant and afraid of doing something wrong...Not about being a goody two shoes just cause he see's things in black and white, but because he doesn't want to let down his parents, and the world too. He's afraid of becoming anything other than good person in peoples eyes, he wants to appease others and reassure himself at the same time, I think that's a trait we can relate to.
