His parents are dead and the whole point of adult relationships is to create your own family by forging new equally intimate bonds with people other than your parents.Anyways I'll bite, his parents knows about him for one.
It has not been established that Lana knows the secret, but considering she and Clark aren't a couple it hardly matters because the point is to ultimately create a new family or fit in and find a home with another human being and obviously Clark and Lana aren't on that path.He has been said to have Lana know his secret for two, even if its not shown yet, Lana has historically known his secret way before Lois knows it. Even in MOS the movie, it was said that Lana will come to know of his secret.
Admitting to something that someone already knows is not the same as revealing something to someone who's been in the dark.Lastly and most importantly, He admitted to Mrs Nxyly even if she did found out about it first and at that point of time, the only thing he knew about her is that she is a human. That by no means signify that he can ONLY be courageous, loving and accepting of humans ONLY if he tells a human his secret identity.
You can keep throwing around insults, it won't make your argument more convincing.Thus, that is no way the truth and its just a sick and warped theory that you conjure up to back your statements that he has to tell a human his secret identity and create a loving bond with one of them.
I never said that Clark's decision not to tell Lois his secret, and thus his self-imposed distance from her, indicates he doesn't value human life. He has accepted the human race as his inspiration and as those he's charged to protect. He's even acquired friends and a job, but he's already admitted his friendships aren't as intimate as he'd like. He still feels estranged from humanity, we're told. Telling me about the Kents' love for their son only makes my point further. As I've said before, even though they didn't give birth to Clark--he was a different species with different abilities--they bravely accepted him and loved him. These humble humans who didn't have powers and who weren't outsiders "gave everything to him," as you say. It's because of what they instilled in him that he is the hero he is today, according to JL13. Thus, loving Lois and ultimately finding a new home with her is an expression of his already existing ability to appreciate that humans can fully love and understand him despite their differences. Don't you see? This is precisely what has made the new Man of Steel trailer so powerful. It opens with Clark and Jonathan worried about how the rest of humanity will react to him because they believe "people are afraid of what they don't understand" and that "people would reject [him] out of fear." The trailer ends with Superman asking, "what do you think?" It's a question that the trailer has Lois Lane answer when she, in front of a show of military force, allies herself with Superman by extending her hand in faith and affection for this alien being.As far as I'm concerned, the minute he values every single human life as his own, the minute he put on that suit and cape to save lives, the minute he knew that he has the power to protect innocent human beings whom lives he value equally or more than himself, he is already courageous and loving and accepted human race. He grew up with his parents and he loved his parents so dearly even though they did not gave birth to him, they are everything to him.
How dare you accuse Kal for your own agenda.
One of the core themes in Superman is about hope in the face fear. Most incarnations ultimately demonstrate that it is cowardice and a cop out for him to not open up to Lois (see here). I'm not saying that he has to start getting that close to Lois ASAP. However, I am saying that in the myth of Superman, his capacity to finally make strides toward sharing his life with the human he loves--the one who had faith in him as Superman without ever knowing the man underneath first--is a poetic statement that not only brings his narrative full circle back to his human parents, it's a wonderful message to readers about transcending differences in our own lives by taking risks to be open to that which is different.
So I guess for the past 60 years before he told lois lane his secret, he is not
with that, im done.courageous, loving and accepting of humans
out). But not telling her doesn't make him un-accepting of humans. To prove one's love takes guts, because loving something is hard and it's a risk. There's a reason why many Superman writers say the way you make the physically invulnerable Superman have sympathetic vulnerability is to show that his heart is vulnerable. When he chooses to put a fortress around his heart, which is attracted to and yearns to have the kind of attachment with humans he once had with his parents, because he's afraid, he is denying a part of himself--the part that already loves and accepts humans. So he has those qualities, yet he is not fully expressing them. Consequently, he is still separate from humanity by his own choice.
... The Master Of Puppets has spoken.
Goodbye León (november 16th, 1993 - june 12th, 2009). You were, are and always will be the best friend I ever had. I will always love you and never forget you. And please, please forgive me.
Thank you for teaching me about love, patience and caring. Rest in Peace, my friend. I hope that wherever it is you are now, you can run and play as much as you want.
Lana knows his secret and has known since they were teens. I also bet he loves her like a sister.
Read Action comics back ups.
Also question: why are we always so focused on the romantic aspects of Superman? Isn't there more to him than just that? He's not some love novel character.
Every thread with this nonsense.....
I'm not getting involved in the big debate, but I thought it was obvious from that back up that she's privvy to Clark's secret.
I don't see him as a love novel character, Superman and Clark has always been more then that. The problem is that romance goes hand in hand with comics. Which again was why I keep thinking that any romantic interests should be sidelined until at least four years of stories have been told to allow the characters to foster personalities and friendships. Seems like Lana is privvy, as for the whole courage issues, I woudn't say he was a coward for not telling Lois I would say that he was more worried about the after affects of it. No one wants to be rejected, so yes and no there's a courage issue, but there's also an issue of "If I tell Lois then someone might read her mind and find out." so there's also a trust thing.
