A Few Words About The Man of Steel

Superman doesn't kill, just like America doesn't torture.

Superman stands for truth, justice, and the American way.

But the American way is no longer about truth, no longer about justice. The American way is now security at any cost. Any. Cost.

Even if that cost is a perversion of what we say we hold dear as a country united only by the promise of a common creed: that we are, in Lincoln's words, "a government of the people, by the people, for the people."

Snyder has given us the Superman we've become, not the Superman we need. You want your Superman back? Earn him back.
