Default Re: Goyer Admits They Didn't Plan How 'Reporter Clark Kent' Could Make Sense

This reinforces what I have said for a while: Goyer does not understand the character. At all. I am far from a Superman expert or hardened fan (even though I love Superman Returns,) but the glasses and Clark Kent chameleon image are part of the fantasy, like Batman's red telephone to police headquarters or Ollie Queen having his Arrow-Cave (or to borrow a name from Harley Quinn from the Injustice comic, Quiver,) beneath his club. Trying to explain them exhaustively causes these artistic crystal to shatter.

"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the B---- of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?"
One of the best soundtrack sections. Ever.
