When I was a little kid and an adult told me a good story, I would say “again” when it was through. Here is my again of the Superman story. We have been to this movie before. With Krypton about to be destroyed, a baby is sent to earth in a capsule. That baby is adopted and becomes Clark Kent. We see Clark discover his powers, then struggle with them and the responsibilities they bring. When a threat to all of Earth comes calling, it is Clark Kent who must defend us all as The Man of Steel.
In the end, the earth is destroyed. Just kidding! I wanted to see if you were paying attention. I won’t tell you what happens, but come on!
The comic books were such a part of my childhood that I was Superman for Halloween for 8 years in a row. Star Wars was the only entity powerful enough to change my costume choice and even that was a struggle, but after all those years the costume was becoming pretty ratty (and a little smelly too). Boy was my mom happy!
