Yes, I forget this concept of avoiding the superhero to be the superhero.

It's not "just a name." It defines him and it's given for a reason.

But once he's just one of the Kryptonians, then the whole thing loses its weight, no matter if they want to call him Superman in the second or third movie.

Or called Clark the "Fifth Kryptonian."

Oh yes, we all know that only teenagers fall in love. Not men. Adults punch their problems away.
