For decades, the iconic comic-book character Superman has stood for "truth, justice and the American way." But apparently those days are over. DC Comics, the longtime publisher of Superman comics, now says the Man of Steel stands for "truth, justice ... and a better tomorrow," according to a report. The change reflects a broader, more global vision for the world of Superman, Jim Lee, DC's chief creative officer and publisher, said Saturday during the company's virtual DC FanDome event, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"To better reflect the storylines that we are telling across DC and to honor Superman's incredible legacy over 80 years of building a better world, Superman's motto is evolving," Lee said. ... The motto change was the second half of a recent 1-2 punch for fans of the traditional Superman. Last week came news that an upcoming Superman comic book will feature Jon Kent " son of Superman's alter-ego, newspaper reporter Clark Kent " as a bisexual Superman.
