Superman Is A Story

by Christopher Paul on April 21, 2013

I already mentioned my love of the Superman character. It’s a complicated reason why but Rands has a good summary of why he does.

Superman is a story. It’s a great story. It’s an unrealistic story full of fantastic elements that appeal to our desire to be intensely good humans, to perform amazing feats of strength, and to live forever. These stories, while unrealistic, give us direction, they temporarily relieve our burdens, and they give us an ambitious plan forward.

Like Superman says in the upcoming movie, Man of Steel, “The ‘S’ is for hope.”
