Totally agreed. And I always think that it's good to compare him to Batman in that way. Batman is sending a message to criminals with his symbol. It is showing them that they aren't above the law, that they can't get away with everything scott free, and that they should be afraid. Superman is sending a message to the people. It is showing them that there truly are good people in the world, who dedicate their lives to helping people. It is showing them that they should hope, and that miracles can happen, and that they shouldn't live in fear. That not everyone is selfish and greedy and distrusting, and they can be better than that too. I love Lois and Clark for really pushing elements of the story where you actually see the effect Superman has on the public. If people start to see him in a bad light, they start to loose their faith. They need that untouchable image to look up too. And the fact is, a man can do that with or without powers. Kind of like Kick Ass. You can still inspire people.
