Exactly.

Trucking company should look into insuring their trucks...seems like good idea.

Anyways, I think this non boy scout CK is a very basic way to fix what the modern GA perceived as flawed and boring. This idea that he was raised on earth and is just like the rest of us has always fell short in light of the idea that the midwest raises saints.

In this film I saw the thesis finally manifest. Raised on earth, has a big destiny to live up to. Like any man it's something you grow into. Pretty sure Obama wasn't the saint he is now when he left college lol.

Then again the last time they tried to change him for the modern GA, they made him sort of a dead beat.

But what about the poor insurance companies that have to pay for it!?!?!?

Just pretend it was a LexCorp truck and the money came out of Luthor's pocket.

I have read many Superman comics...and I am under the impression that he is a good man because the Kents raised him to be a good man.

It isn't collateral damage. Clark CHOSE to destroy public and private property just to make life miserable for a jerk he had bumped into. That destruction did not have to happen and ONLY happened because Clark got angry and wanted to destroy something.

Accidentally destroying a building while trying to save humanity is much different.

Also...another small issue...but Clark Kent is a thief. He stole a man's clothing. This man did NOTHING to Clark...never even met him.

This is just another example of how the writers of this film simply don't understand who Clark Kent is. The definitive Clark Kent would not steal from an innocent person to give himself a disguise.

No, you're asking us to consider the feelings of a pervert and bully. Why should we feel bad for him? He doesn't feel bad that he's sexually harrassing a woman, instead of stopping when he's told to stop, he threatens more violence.

We're supposed to feel sorry that he might have some problems later? Karma's a *****, my friend.

And if the company he works for loses out, its because they've hired a jerk. I'm sure that company has an HR department, and I'm sure that while an employee is driving one of their company's trucks, their drivers are expected to adhere to the standards of the company. I'm sure learning that their driver sexually harrasses women, and threatens violence in bars - risking arrest - would reflect poorly on their company and he would be fired anyway.

I heard he ripped the tags off of his mattresses too. It's going to be on the blu-ray extended version.

Please stop lying about my stance.

Public and company property were destroyed because Clark Kent got angry at a guy.

I have dealt with that type of jerk in the past. I got justice for the victim WITHOUT destroying other people's property and shutting down the power supply for innocent people.

And because you can't throw a truck onto a telephone line.

It was definitely a crime that his pecs only had such a small amount of screen time... talk about under using the talent

I didn't have a problem with Superman destroying that trucker's truck or stealing those clothes or any other such issue.

My friend turned to me at that point and said 'Yeah, i'd do him, but I might have to put a bag over his face...'

Then later when she saw him without the beard, she took it back

The first picture I saw of him was a set picture from the scene where he was stealing the clothes.

My first thought was, "Helloooooo Superman!!"

But I CAN destroy property in other ways. I just choose not to victimize others for the actions of one.

I'm smarter than this Clark Kent and I'm more moral than this Clark Kent (yes, I have been in desperate situations in my life where stealing was needed...and I STILL didn't do it). I am more the Man of Tomorrow than Clark Kent. If THIS can be changed about the character, then ANYTHING can be changed. There should never be another complain about a change made to a character in a superhero movie.

These are small issues...but part of a larger whole that shows a very, very poor representation of the character.

Exactly. You can't win the "I didn't do what Clark Kent did!" argument when you lack the abillity to throw trucks in the first place.
