A young person takes on his fate... A surefire weeper.....
I loved the episode. The only moment of "failure" was the initial reading of Lois' vows. Clark's were excellent, but Lois' were not of the caliber one would expect from a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist.The writers on the show definitely understood that Superman's real weakness is that he needs human relationships in order to remain a hero. Aristotle wrote that the man who can live without the city is either beast or god. Superman has the power to live outside "the city," but in doing so he would likely become a godly beast. The "Darkness" discussed throughout this season was spot on.That said though, the best episode of the season was the Booster episode. Ah the memories and joy that episode engendered.
I wish I could remember the writer at National Review's "Corner" who wrote about the recent "Superman becomes a citizen of the world and renounces his American citizenship." arc in the comic books....Made almost exactly that point: a superhero who was not a member of a polis would be a monster.... Dr. Manhattan, in fact.
