Re: Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El Characterization - Part 1
Personally, my interpretation of Superman has always been that it’s never been about him questioning as to whether he should do the right thing but more about him questioning IF he was doing the right thing. I think there are ways to challenge his character in terms of his innate qualities in interesting ways without resorting to Spiderman-like angst or compromising his character to the point where there’d be a universal backlash as a result. The film “Superman vs. The Elite” is a prime example of that for starters. But I do agree that there would probably be a part of him that fears that he may let down his parents and the world, but I don’t think those factors are what drives him as much.
