Get To Know: Superman [Man of Steel] [CK version]
I may have been conceived out there in the endless depths of space… but I was born when the Rocket opened, on Earth, in America. I’ll cherish always the memories Jor-El and Lara gave me… but only as curious mementos of a life that might have been. Krypton bred me, but it was Earth that gave me all I am. All that matters. It was Krypton that made me Superman… but it is the Earth that makes me Human!. -Superman, The Man of Steel
What’s nowhere, but everywhere, except where something is?
Do not gas this motherfucka up
I had a speech. I learned it all. Oh, god, she won’t understand, she won’t understand.
Of course she won’t understand, Sparky. I’m beyond her understanding. She’s a girl! With sugar and spice and everything… useless unless you’re baking. I’m more than that. More than flesh— More than blood. I’m, you know, I honestly don’t think there’s a human word fabulous enough for me. Oh, my name will be on everyone’s lips. Assuming their lips haven’t been torn off. But not just yet. That’s all right, though— I can be patient. Everything is well within parameters. She’s exactly where I want her to be. And so are you, number 17. You’re right where you belong— So what’d you think, you’d get your soul back and everything would be jim dandy? A soul’s slipperier than a greased weasel. Why do you think I sold mine? Well, you probably thought that you’d be your own man. And I respect that— But you never will. You’ll always be mine. You’ll always be in the dark with me. Singing our little songs. You like our little songs, don’t you? You’ve always liked them, right from the beginning. And that’s where we’re going— Right back to the beginning! Not the bang, not the word… the true beginning. The next few months are going to be quite a ride, and I think we’re all going to learn something about ourselves in the process. You’ll learn you’re a pathetic schmuck, if it hasn’t sunk in already. Look at you… tried to do what’s right. Just like her. You still don’t get it. It’s not about right. Not about wrong— It’s about power.
Y e s. He’s out there somewhere.
