Forgive Me, Superman

I apologise. I remember in my innocent youth, I accused you of being a boring character. Boy scout, dull, goody goody, lacking angst and pain and all that stuff that cool characters like Batman had.

Now, I see Superman Returns, and I’m reminded of how fresh you are for lacking a lot of that. Not many superheroes remind those rescued from a crashing plane that air travel is still, statistically, the safest way to fly. And even if they did, none of them could do it and still seem as cool as you. How could I forget how awesome you were?

Oh yeah, Smallville. Huh. Ah well.

I’m also very glad that, even though there were potential angst-inducing moments in Superman Returns, your character didn’t wallow much. You get on with the job. I like it. You’re a straight-forward guy, and therein lies your charm.

If I was disappointed at seeing you in action this time around, it was only that your body was tested so much more than your mind and ethics. You’re a smart cookie, and Returns didn’t give you much of an opportunity to show that. Here’s hoping there’s a sequel.

P.S. Kate Bosworth is really cute.
