Hey DCEU! Is It Time To Put The Man Back Into Superman?

SupermanI have never made any secret of my bitter disappointment in the DCEU movies and the almost criminally mishandling of the characters and their core values. However what they did to Superman was a crime, sacrificing his values on the altar of building a franchise… When really all they needed to do was put the man into Super.

His Greatest Strength

I have always said that Superman‘s greatest strength is not his powers, but his heart, this example exert from the Superman: Grounded comic written by J. Michael Straczynski

Superman Stops A Suicide Superman Stops A Suicide Superman Stops A Suicide Superman Stops A Suicide Superman Stops A Suicide Superman Stops A Suicide Superman Stops A Suicide

By waiting, identifying and then bonding, Superman did more than just save the day, he saved and changed a life. Sure he could have flown up there, grabbed her and it would have been all over in a second, but would he have saved her? This is where his heart is all important, and it is this reason, above all else why we desperately need this Superman back on the silver screen. We need his example to remind us of just how great we as people can be. We need hope and idealism to conquer apathy and cynicism. We need our greatest hero to come back out of the wilderness… We should all be super… MAN.
