Superman is not supposed to be a dark gritty character. Superman is supposed to be about the light & all that is good. There are already plenty of dark & gritty characters in comics, movies, & t.v. If you make superman dark & gritty then he will be just like these other characters. I do not want to see a dark Superman. I like Superman the way he is supposed to be, as a positive big boy scout, who smiles & saves the day!!!
