Thank you. It was off the cuff, but reflects the kind of dialouge I want to see in the movie. I'm a big believer in the power of dramedy in comic book/sci-fi/fantasy/adventure material.

Your right, it could not carry the film alone. But like you said, a vignette would be nice. Have you seen the original Robocop? In the film, after Robocop comes online he is sent out on his first night in Detroit. What follows is a series of non-related crimes that Robocop stops while showing off all his abilities. I would do something similiar with Superman following his debut in suit. While it might draw ire, I'm having Superman stop a terrorist attack myself.

In the movie world, Clark Kent has never been a real character. He was just the goofy disguise. It's time to change that. If there's one thing that Lois & Clark and Smallville got right it's that they gave CK the proper respect.
Clark Kent would do his part.......through writing.
