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

No one will be calling him a boyscout when they've seen him throwing a few punches, or hanging out bearded and gruff looking in Alaska.

He only gets called a boyscout because the image of Superman people have is this guy who's smiling and waving at the camera, spouting lines that literally sound like boyscout mottos.

It's not his 'goodness' that's the problem, so his motives for being a good person really don't need to be altered.

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
Flash: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
