Nailing Superman

Post by Woodclaw » Fri Aug 09, 2019 5:55 pm

This piece isn't mine, it's from John Wick (the author of 7thSea a lot of other games) and I think he really nailed one of the key points about Superman: he does care.

"You're right. Sorry. Holy shit," I breathed, "heckhounds.”

There's a comment on the story from someone who said Superman ignored the larger problem: "What did Superman do about a government doing illegal human experimentation and then black ops to cover it up when it fails? Nothing. According to this story he ignored the larger problem."

But in the story itself it says "The Man of Steel says, “I found the men who did this to you. They’re in custody. The District Attorney says he needs your testimony to finish off his case.”" Clearly the the commenter didn't read the entire story. I hate that.
W: Professor Plum, you were once a professor of psychiatry specializing in helping paranoid and homicidal lunatics suffering from delusions of grandeur.

PP: Yes, but now I work for the United Nations.

W: So your work has not changed.
