At 80, Superman is a certified senior, even though he doesn’t look older than 30. As the world changes, Superman is updating his mission statement to better reflect the world he lives in, DC Creative Director Jim has announced. Lee at today’s DC Fandome event.
The world is changing, and so is the Man of Steel. Since his early years, the superhero’s motto has been “Truth, Justice, and American Style,” but we live in an increasingly global world, and Superman protects not only the United States of America, but also Earth.
“To better reflect the stories we tell across DC and to honor Superman’s incredible legacy of over 80 years of building a better world, Superman’s motto is evolving. Superman has long been a beacon of hope that inspires people, and it’s that optimism and I hope that propels him forward with this new mission statement: Truth, Justice and A Brighter Future,” Lee said in an official statement.
DC’s Fandome is a four-hour event taking place from 10am-2pm PST, during which DC plans to unveil a bunch of DC-related content. DC and Warner Bros. have promised us a new trailer for The Batman, and at the time of this writing, we don’t yet know what to expect. We’d bet on something from The Flash movie, Black Adam, Gotham Knights game, and Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League game, but probably don’t expect Injustice 3.
