Default Re: Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El Characterization - Part 1

Seriously... who the hell do you think Superman is?

VILLAINS find causing the fear of innocenct people amusing.

HEROES find causing the fear of innocent people disturbing.

That is not a hard concept to grasp, and no matter how 'tired' you are of that formula, it is simply basic recognition of what makes a person GOOD rather than EVIL.

So no... not even a little bit... not even at first.

Superman would NEVER find it amusing that people were afraid of him.

I mean, how would you even visualise that? People cowering in a corner after a display of strength, and then Superman laughing and saying 'Oh you silly humans'?

I swear, this forum never ceases to amaze me...

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
Flash: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
