"What makes [Superman] interesting other than that he’s really, really strong? That question led me to want to redefine Clark in ways that made him more interesting and more flawed as a person. Not in a dark, mean, cynical way, because that’s way too easy. But as a true outsider whose heart is vulnerable. I wanted to emphasize the loneliness of a kid growing up knowing just how different he was from everyone else, who had to keep his distance for their protection and his own."

Quote of the Day | ‘What makes Superman unique?’ | Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources – Covering Comic Book News and Entertainment

This is basically every kid ever, if you think about it for longer than a half-second. This isn’t a Superman thing. It’s not profound. It’s just the human experience. It’s how we do. It’s not special.

You’re right - but that’s sort of what makes it work, I think. That’s maybe part of why kids (or at least some kids) get Superman. I know it’s why I did, and still do.

And in growing up feeling alone and alienated as a kid because of not being human, it goes to show just how human he really is because it IS how we feel, even into adulthood. And that’s also a great thing about Superman/Clark: sometimes he’s more human than the humans he longs to relate to, but he doesn’t even know it.

And that is part of why I love Superman. He’s looking up to the people that are looking up to him.
