Superman – It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s the greatest hero of all time, Superman. Average, bumbling reporter by day, superhero by night; Superman is probably the most recognized and beloved heroes of all time. The last son of Krypton, Kal-El, was raised as Clark Kent by a farm couple in Kansas. As grow he developed amazing powers and with his strong moral values was inspires to become a hero. This Man of Steel dedicates his life to protect the people, to fight against evil and give the world a sense of hope. No battle is too small, whether the world is in peril or business tycoons are exploiting human rights or a corner store is being held up, this hero always tries to be there for the people. Ever since Superman was introduced to the world he has been an icon and inspiration for so many different kinds of people; his existence, fictional or not, is powerful and gives strength to children and adults alike. You can’t deny the truest power of Superman, hope.
One cannot deny the crush worthiness of Superman, he may just be the only man that stayed in my heart from childhood to know. Beyond being the tall-dark-and-handsome type, which I have to admit is one of my favorites, what Superman represents is just so much more amazing. He always tries to do what’s best for all, not letting all these factors that make us discriminate each other stop him, or let corruption bait him; he has his values and refuses to waver. Superman has a golden heart and pure values, and even if sometimes he must face the challenges alone that stop him from making the right choice.
Honestly, the biggest draw for me is that whenever I read or watch the stories of Superman unfold there is always just this lingering feeling that I love. He is my greatest symbol of hope because he nothing stops him from doing what he needs to do. I love represents and always just wish that there were people like him in the real world, not superheroes with powers, even though I think that would be super cool, but just inspire hope. I know that there are but sometimes it feels like they get faded into the background and I just think that it would be amazing if our world had a beacon of hope like Superman.
