How Superman makes sense in the real world
One of the strongest character in the DC universe and an important member of the Justice League.Everyone knows Superman and what he symbolizes ‘strength and power’. Being a fictional character Superman seems impossible in real world. But wait! Think again, does he motivates you in your hard times? Yes. Definitely, he does!
Here are some great things you should know that how Superman makes sense in the real world.
“It’s not just an ‘S’. In my world it means hope.”
What comes to your mind when you hear hope? It’s a feeling of endless possibilities and desire that everything is going to be all right. Hope is a bright star in the hopelessly dark world. Superman is that star which gives us a ray of hope. He is a beacon to this world.
“He is an alien, but he is more human than us.”
Superman is very kind being. His altruism, generosity, helpfulness and a desire to help people are the aspects that keep him very closely connected to humanity. These are the values every human being should learn from him.
“Don’t think about what society will think about you.”
“What if, a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if, a child aspire to something greater.” This line applies to every one of us. you have to decide what kind of person you want to be. Because whoever you will become, you are going to change this world in many possible ways.
We, humans, are very greedy and narrow-minded. We judge each other, we pull each other, we kill each other for our own needs. But Superman, he is way more different than us. He does not seek to emphasize faults in humanity. He rather seeks to emphasize the strength in humanity and helping humans.
“You will give the people an ideal. To strive towards. They will race behind you. They will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.”

Pain cannot be avoided, but it should be embraced. Even a non-existing character can teach us more about, being human and life. This is how Superman makes sense in the real world and there is no doubt why we call him Superman.
