The beginning of an interesting suggestion from Slate:
I don’t want to offer spoilers for the new Superman movie, Man of Steel but suffice it to say that for a while in the film Superman is kind of bouncing around sporadically rescuing people from random accidents. And it’s a Superman scenario we all know and love. Even when humanity’s existence isn’t being threatened by alien invaders or the latest evil Lex Luthor plot there’s always someone, somewhere who needs to be saved by a guy who can lift really heavy objects.
And yet is this a good use of Superman’s time?
I don’t want to offer any spoilers either, but when you see “Man of Steel” and think about it afterward, you’ll realize that overall, he didn’t save that many people. I suspect this writer didn’t see the movie.
