As you know, I’m quite keen on comic books. Especially the ones about superheroes. I find the whole mythology around superheroes fascinating. Take, my favorite superhero, Superman: Not a great comic book, not particularly well drawn, but the mythology, the mythologies not only great, it’s unique.
Now, the staple in the superhero mythology is, there’s the superhero and there’s the alter-ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spiderman’s actually Peter Parker. Now, when that character wakes up in the morning he’s Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spiderman & it is in that characteristic, Superman stands alone. Superman didn’t become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he is Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit w the big red “s”, that’s the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kent’s found him. Those are his clothes.
What Kent wears; the business suit w the glasses - that’s the costume, that’s the costume Superman wears to blend in. Clark Kent is how Superman views us & what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He’s weak, he’s unsure of himself, he’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race. Sort of like Beatrix Kiddo and Mrs Wannita _ _ _ _ _. You would’ve worn the costume of Mrs Wannita _ _ _ _ _ but you were born, Beatrix Kiddo & every morning when you woke up, you’d still be Beatrix Kiddo. I’m calling you a killer, a natural born killer, you always have been and you always will be.
