i want to talk about clark kent as a journalist in bvs
i want to talk about how clark became a journalist because lois showed him that it could put him where superman needed to be and how he then came to understand that it could be a way to amplify others’ voices. i want to talk about clark kent, champion of the disenfranchised and marginalized, who notices that the bat targets poor neighborhoods and is wary of why. i want to talk about “perry when you assign a story you’re making a judgement about who matters” and about how clark wants everyone, especially those society cares about the least, to matter. i want to talk about clark kent honoring the power and importance of honest and daring journalism and adamantly refusing to allow the profession to be anything less than it was intended to be. i want to talk about how he never uses his voice for himself (he doesn’t even get to speak at the senate hearing). i want to talk about how clark kent thinks our stories – as well as our lives – are more important than his own.
