later i find a place for them but till then they are reminders of the people i'm writing. sort of mental anchoring points that summarize the craracter in a way that always gets me back to who they are in a nutshell
plus...fun to do XD
When it comes down to it, Kal-El is one really lazy fighter. He mostly relies on his superhuman toughness. He uses little fighting technique and rarely tries to dodge anything. That's what makes it so, ahem, "epic" when he fights something truly on his own level.
And for such a civic-minded guy he seems to totally ignore collateral damage. Those bullets that he's so worried about should be stuck inside disabled weapons! Super-speed, remember?
I remember from Superman the Animated Series how an alternate version of him said to the effect that he had always tried to be a good example in the hopes that everyone else would "get it" and be good as well.
