Superman and the Other-Worldly Challenges of Adopting that Baby Who Has Landed in Your Life
Man of Steel
Halfway through the film, young Superman’s dad teaches his son sacrificial love in a dramatic way. In “Man of Steel,” young Clark has to conceal his abilities – to the point of having to decide whether to save his father’s life in front of the gawking public. Kostner’s character waves his son off – fearing it will change young Clark’s life for the worse if the boy reveals his supernatural abilities.
