That's a good point. Yes, we definitely need to FEEL Superman is what Jor-El is saying he is but it always helps to have flowery dialogue to enhance it. I mean, how many times in the TDK Trilogy did we hear the idea that Batman is a symbol, he strikes fear, blah, blah, blah? It helps sell the point.
