Perhaps this apparent overly simplistic morality is a holdover from his youth: He saw complexity in moral situations when his peers couldn’t, so now he frames moral situations for others as he believes they’ll be able to understand them—in black and white. 44 Superman leaves no doubt about his morality in this first “interview” of Superman by Lois, in a version of the script for Superman I: LOIS: Let’s just say your average Joe can’t deliver an airmail letter without putting a stamp on it. SUPERMAN: I wouldn’t do that.
His actions are straightforward, predictable, and clear, and provide moral guideposts that are easy to remember. ’ Inside each of you is a hero. ” Were his moral behavior more nuanced, it would be difficult for humans to discern right from wrong and behave accordingly in a given situation. I would also argue that his intellectual gifts have allowed him to learn a lot about human nature. He realizes that he “serves” at the will of the people. Humans allow Superman free reign because his moral behavior is simplistic and, therefore, predictable.
