Q:Why do you think people hate on Superman?
Heroes who are dark and broody or arrogant and sarcastic or psychologically damaged in recent times seem to be the more “cool” ones. Toss in a bit of mary/gary sue ie, they are the best at everything they do, most of the opposite sex go gaga for them and you have an object of wish fulfillment. That’s popular these days.
While heroes who are noble and compassionate and try to do the right thing at times are seen as boring.
It’s quite weird, isn’t it? In real life who do you think we’d want as our heroes and who we would faster trust?
But good story telling is key. Look at some of the characters we all love because of their inherent optimism and nobility…from the characters in the Lord of the Rings to Captain America…the way their stories were told made audiences connect with them.
Superman has suffered with regards to writing in the past and we hope he will have a continued renaissance that will allow modern audiences to see his value. Superheroes are modern day myths and he has to evolve as well to reflect the socio-political times we live in. But he can keep his core aspects ie courage, compassion, kindness, standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves, etc and be represented as a multi-layered, compelling character.
