he might have superior intellect but morality and ethics are subjective to ideological views hence why some people would think superman comes off as a totalitarian huxleyan/brave new world-esque nightmare
yeah it sucks. i was so fucking hyped for MOS, trailers made it look great. go to see the film, and its absolute shit. Not to mention the hopes of a sequel were destroyed when the film under performed so they shoehorned Batman and 90% of the JL into it.
Do you like we'll ever get a truly great Superman movie again that proves why he is so iconic and why he should be as well loved as characters like Batman, Spider-Man or the Avengers?
Will there ever be a chance that the majority of people will once again respect Superman for being one of the greatest comic characters with a plethora of interesting stories and personality traits and not just call him "bland" or "boring"?
>>78946488 some of them it makes sense, Barry Allen is a forensic scientist. batman is multi discipline. and martian mar hunter. has alien intelligence. but when does wonder woman or aqua-man display genius level intellect?
>>78946587 That means the novie was popular, no one loves titanic or avatar. There's people all over the world that don't go to the movies and dont play with toys. Superman is a cultural icon, something the avengers will never be. Batman and superman are mickey tier, you can ask anyone over the world what a batcave or a kryptonite are, from a 50 years old in italy to some older paki lady.
Superman has never been shown as a genius outside of comics. Even in JLA, Batman was shown to be at a higher level intellect to be able to match the other members. So why are people getting booty bothered now?
>>78946606 He isnt a genius and has never been portrayed that way in the comics, he is supersmart, can think faster and is knowledgeable about super science from krypton, all that and moving at the speed of light makes making superrobots something pretty easy. But geniality comes from aomething more than thinking like a super computer. Everything superman does is super, so for him doing superscience is just normal under his limitations, without powers he is just a pretty smart guy, a really good reporter that types really slow, in krypton no one would call him a genius. Calling batman the smartest person in the room does bot make everyone else dumb, bad writting makes everybody dumb you can make everybody shine if you try
>>78945625 Because you need to read comics to know that and the general public don't read comics. I don't read Superman's comics and nothing I have seen with him (old animation serie, serie, movies) talk about his intellect. Only that he's good person.
>>78946525 Wrong. He let a tanker truck collide with an empty and mostly destroyed parking structure, and as soon as he did it, you can see him look back at it like, "Okay, maybe that wasn't the best idea", as if he regretted not stopping it.
Of course, none of you people will give that movie a fair chance, so I don't know why I'm bothering here.
>>78948871 And... he is actually loved by millions all over the world regardless of age, while the avengers movies are popular in their TARGET audience. Your 80 years old grandma knows who lex luthor and the joker are, a farmer in Peru knows what the dynamic duo is but probably thinks ultron is a new kind of TV. You can't argue about who is iconic and who is not. Spiderman is on his way to be iconic, and is probably the most popular hero among children, the avengers are not, they are popular just like the TMNT, Pokemon or masters of the universe were at some point, they still need time to even get close to the x-men or transformers.
Now this means that warner and DC fail in a even worst way, they had failed to cash on batman since the early 90's and on superman since the late 70's.
>>78950412 No, it's not. That building was right in the middle of ground zero. The interior shots we see of other buildings in that area show them to be empty. And before the attack even began, the police were evacuating the area. I doubt very seriously that anybody was in that building.
>"Superman's powers don't depend on who is writing him for whatever Universe he is currently being portrayed in.No,his powers are a combination of every single power he had in comics bar none"
Hey dipshits,this is a SHARED UNIVERSE superman,he doesn't have to have the powers to take Darkseid all by himself,he can be a little nerfed.God I can't wait to see how you retards react when they bring out Martian Manhunter
>"Wait what,everyone knows he has super strength,super speed,Super vision and invulnerability matching Supermans,global range telepathy,telekinesis,can fly at light speed,optic blasts,can go intangible AND invisible,more intelligent then Batman and rivaling Lex Luthor if not Brainiac,shapeshifting,immortal and most important of all can materialize Ice cream.This aint my MM"
If they ever introduce Martian Manhunter on film he is going to be so fucking nerfed all the fanboys will shit their pants in unison.
Being a superman fan is easy, you just need to stop wanting him to be the absolute protagonist of everything batman was the second most popular character of dc for 20 years and since the mid 60's he is the most popular, there's no need to be pissed, they are the world finest.
>>78948871 This may be the most ridiculous statement on a website full of them.
True, Mickey Mouse anchors a set of theme parks. The most successful set of theme parks on the planet by a wide margin.
The Mouse, the S shield and, the bat shield are three of the most recognizable icons in worldwide pop culture.
Although there has not been a traditionally animated Mickey cartoon in ages, Disney is still making new animated shorts and TV shows featuring Mickey and putting them out on their channels, apps, Netflix and Youtube.
>>78951730 I am a fan of Superman and your rationalization of Batman's detective work is sound, I will have to concede that. Batman understands the pathology of crime better than Superman does. Superman my have genius level intellect, but he cannot think through psychosis in the way that batman can.
>>78952130 Not really, i will say that the trinity is, flash and aquaman are as well known (but far from the popularity), and GL and MM are way less known. >>78952221 He is, but he is not a genius, he is a well educated, smart person that can think faster than a supercomputer. He is not someone that thinks outside the box. But i don't know, sometimes i believe Americans use genius as equal of supersmart.
