*OOC: It's been an amazing 80 years*

//Let me tell you why Superman is so important to me. Not as just a fictional character but as an icon. The shield for Superman is the second most recognizable symbol in the world next to the Christian Cross. For good reason too!

A lot of people nowadays look at Superman from a very two dimensional lense sadly. Starting with his powers his appearance and so on. Those things have nothing to do with why he's been around for so long. What the icon stands for has had a lasting impact on our culture. Superman is the grandfather of super heroes he set the golden standard for what it means to be a super hero. He is the one. What it means to prevail in the face of overwhelming obstacles. What it means to do the right thing not for some sort of pay off, not for self centered reasons but because it's what we should do. This is what Superman was popularized by.

He didn't need some tragic story to become a force for good. It's a powerful message, Superman is a symbol because Superman represents undying good. It's what the character was built up from. It's why when we have these versions of the character that try to twist the sense of truth justice and dignity from the character, people often neglect it. Because that's not Superman. Superman represents the ability to do good, represents the potential in all of us to become something.. Good :)

I can go on and on for hours about why he's my favorite hero but I'm gonna leave it on this note. See ya around folks!
