Usually whenever I search this or Is Superman too perfect, I always get answers and results saying that he's not and that he has flaws & weaknesses but in the answers they always just state the weaknesses and not the flaws.
I've seen some of Batman's flaws but I find It harder to spot Superman's Flaws because he's portrayed as this Paragon of Virtue which makes him come off as bland, boring and perfect, especially to those who have little knowledge about him like me.
So I wanted to ask the people on this fandom who have Deep Intricate Knowledge about him on what those flaws are?
So that I can better understand the character and maybe develop more love and appreciation.
Note: The following article is not a canon statement, is just an observation over some elements in the DC continuity.
There are seven dominant forces in the DC universe, and there are Seven main heroes in the JL after the Rebirth, and each one of them is linked to one of the seven forces.
(Note: When I say "linked" I mean "related", not "connected", some cases count as "connected" though).
Flash: As it was showed before the introduction of the seven forces, the Flash is linked to the Speed Force, the dimensional force that sets the universe in motion.
Green Lantern: As it was also showed before the introduction of the seven forces, Green Lanterns' power comes from the Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum, the manifestation of the emotions of the beings in the universe, being the Will the central emotion.
Aquaman: The Life Force, the force that allows the life to flourish and flow through the world, brought to us in the form of water, the element that gave birth to the living beings in the planet and that connect us all.
Wonder Woman: The Sphere of the Gods is the energy that bends the rules of nature to the will of the user, the fount of all the magic and divine power, wielded by gods, new gods, angels, demons, sorcerers and, in this case, the demigods.
Cyborg: As a half machine, Cyborg is the embodimient of knowledge in the Justice League, Batman might be the smartest member, yet the one filled with knowledge instead of intelligence, as such, Cyborg would be the one linked to the Collective Unconscious.
Now, there are only two forces left, The Dimensional Superstructure, the force that states the laws of the universe, and the Faithfulness, the force inside us all that gives us hope and awaken the hero inside us. There are only two heroes left in the list, the World's Finest (Batman and Superman), the thing is that I don't know wich one to link with each one...
In one side, Superman is the most powerful hero of the earth and someone that has control over the imaginable, able to fly, super-strength, heat vision and all and Batman, as the primal member of the JL without super powers is the one that has the faith and hope, becoming a hero despite everything else.
But for the other side, Batman, as the one without power and fully human (almost) could be the one linked to the Dimensional Superstructure as he is the one that it's what the universe stated to be, the one who follows the rules of the universe, such as humans bleed, humans don't fly and all that meanwhile, Superman, the original hero is the embodiment of the Faithfulness, being the principal sign of hope in the earth.
What do you guys think?
Look carefully at this 1st issue of Superman 1939...
Then look at the reference DC did with Superman son of Kal-el issue 1.
I find it really cool how the artist used it for Jonathan’s first series issue and referenced his fathers second comic book series!! Do you?
Reports are going around that Michael B Jordan and his production company Outlier Society are developing an Earth 2 Val Zod Superman Limited Series for HBO Max.
Jordan has made it quite known that he wanted to do something along the lines for many years now after meetings with DC and WB that seemingly went nowhere. After WB’s interest in making a Black Superman project, it finally seems to be the time that Jordan has been given a green signal to go ahead with his plans to do this iteration of the character after fan’s heavy backlash on WB allegedly attempting to make a Black version of Clark Kent Superman under JJ Abrams which Jordan didn’t seem interested in. It’s not clear whether he will star as Val Zod himself or will cast another actor for the role but he is producing.
None of this has been officially confirmed so take it with a grain of salt until announced legitimately.
Where does this tittle fit in the DC timeline if it even is connected to the earth-0 infinite frontier continuity, because in one scene superman is talking to President Kennedy in 1963, then years later he is telling Manchester black about the orignal round table he got as a gift from king Arthur after helping him in the battle of camelot this makes it seem like this a seprate comic but there is also the fact that it is connected to superman:son of kal-el which is known to be set in the main DC continuity , I just can't figure it out does anyone know about this
Hey y’all so i was reading up on jon kent and i realized one of his weaknesses is kryptonite which i get to an extent but i dont think it should effect him at all including when batman stated jons powers are capable of already surpassing superman on his best day n shouldnt he have displayed more powerful feats by now since hes already a teen who trained under his grandfather? Or whatever is grandfather did
I think Superman is the Embodiment of Good & Hope and just doesn't know it, what do you think?
Hello, everyone. I found this discussion thread at CBR's Superman forum so I thought it would be a good idea to bring the discussion over at the DC Database and see if people think Superman is a badass or not.
This is meant to be a friendly discussion, so please be polite and argue your points in a civilized manner. We're all DC fans here, we just see things differently. So leave your comments below, thanks for your time and stay safe out there.
