Superman & Lois is back TONIGHT!
superman and lois is starting back todayyy
just thinkin about the way bruce was so dark and hateful and hopeless in bvs and then clark happened to him and in zsjl he became the most hopeful and faithful character brb crying
Clark doesn't miss a birthday, a doctor's appointment, a bar mitzvah, or a deadline. He's responsible that way. It must be those midwestern farm values he grew up with. Meeting a tough deadline is when he feels the most... human. And he especially doesn't miss dinner with his friends.

i love that scene in batman v superman so much where clark is fighting doomsday and they land in heroes park and there they are, clark and the monster and the statue, because it sums up the relationship clark has with bruce and lex, his two “enemies”, so well. lex sees him as this big god (the statue) he wants to destroy because he has personal beef with ‘god’ and people “need to see what a fraud he is” and “if god is all-powerful he cannot be all-good, and if he’s all-good then he cannot be all-powerful” etc; and bruce sees him as this alien monster (doomsday) he has to stop and kill before it kills humanity first ....
and then there’s clark himself, this poor farmer from kansas, who just tries to save people because he has the power to do it; literally all he wants to do is do some good in the world. but, as that dude in the tv said, “we have always created icons in our image; what we’ve done is we project ourselves onto him. the fact is, maybe he’s not some sort of devil or jesus character, maybe he’s just a guy trying to do the right thing.”
bruce wayne must be the most tired™ vigilante out there. seriously. dude looks like he lives off coffee and 2 hours of sleep. smb give him a blanket and let him nap and unkill his parents
Reading old Superman comics and noticed something important about the evolution of the character. In the older comics, Superman is Clark Kent while in newer stories it's Clark who is Superman.
Let me explain.
Back in the Golden age and Silver Age of comics, Clark Kent was mainly a way for Superman to have aspects of a normal life, but he also made sure to seem extra meek so that no one would suspect who he truly is. But he also enjoys being Superman in his free time and has a high tech fortress with Kryptonian tech and such, not just to help him be Superman but also to entertain himself. And Lois eventually married Superman, they got married in a traditional Kryptonian fashion. Sups was sincerely sad that he didn’t live on Krypton.
Post Crisis of Infinite Earths, it's the other way around. Clark want to use his amazing powers to help, so he creates the Superman persona, someone who is a bit more flashy than the humble country boy from Kansas. And he wants Lois to love him for who he really is, which is Clark, not Superman. Clark is the man he is, not because he is an alien who takes pity on us mere humans, but because his parents taught him to be a good person. There wouldn't be a Superman without the humble Clark Kent
