I’ve been a Superman skeptic for a long time. I didn’t like him. At all. I thought he was overpowered, incredibly cliché, and utterly lacking in personality. I still believe that there is probably some truth to those criticisms, but there’s something I’ve learned about Superman that has trumped my skepticism.
I have to admit, I’m usually not a big Superman fan. I think he’s overpowered and one-dimensional, not to mention the illogical lack of a need to hide his face. However, I left the theater last night pleasantly surprised.
