I wrote an article on Superman a while ago. I understand the existence of a Superman adds hope. The symbol stands for hope. I believe though the character should pass on for the sake of history.
A new Superman, offspring or some force should redirect the concept of Superman, drive the idea of hope and just what it means to be “Super” to another level and beyond Clark Kent.
Overall, the concept of hope is very important. What would be the absence of hope? If you imagine it, it will materialize. What would it matter? Accept hope and use it as a catalyst to take on new tasks, accept setbacks and continue to tackle those tasks until the job is done?
If there is no driving force, there is no driving. Struggles, within reason, are only temporary. The hope to move beyond it is very real.
