Not All of Us Dislike Clark

Bruce Wayne is a jerk. Clark Kent isn't, even if audiences want him to be. So making the man from Krypton some brooding mental case that has Punisher-esque tendencies will not work because it doesn't match the Super-mythos. A legend that espouses a belief in a greater good and that good, no matter the hardships, will ultimately prevail.

How lame. This outdated school of thought hasn't done much for Americans since Watergate.
