The Man of Steel.
The Last Son of Krypton.
Faster than a speeding bullet,
Stronger than a locomotive,
He has lasers for eyes,
and can fly
without even flapping his arms.
But his most notable power was Lois Lane.
The love of an amazing woman
is a phone booth that can turn a man
from a spineless news reporter
into a symbol of justice,
into a reason why it’s safe to walk outside
while the sun is sleeping.
I’ll be honest, I don’t have a cape.
Or a costume.
I wasn’t born on Krypton
and it’s been a really, really long time
since I’ve been in a fight
but I will fight gravity for you.
If you’re upset and you don’t feel like talking,
I will try to use my x-ray vision
to look inside of you
and see what’s really wrong.
If you need me to,
I will use my superhuman strength
and put your entire world
on my shoulders.
If you let me,
I will do my best to be Superman for you.
Because you deserve it.
