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.
Defo on that.

I think we can all relate with not wanting to let people down, especially our family. That's what I was referring with Superman. Not a fear that drives him, but an understanding in how we want to make people proud of us, especially those who raised us with so much love and hope, and being just a tiny fraction of our decision to do the right thing. That's all
