"In the end, I saw Superman not as a hero or even a science fiction character, but as a story of Everyman. Were all Superman in our own adventures. We have our own Fortress Of Solitude to retreat to, with our own special collection of valued stuff, our own super-pets, our own "Bottled Cities" that we feel guilty for neglecting. We have our own peers and rivals and bizarre emotional or moral tangles to deal with. That "S" is the radiant emblem of divinity we reveal when we rip off our stuffy shirts, our social mask, our neuroses, our constructed selves, and become who we truly are.
------Grant Morrison on Superman
