Quote of the Day | Superman is 'more relevant now than ever'

"Everyone's like, 'He's so powerful, I can't relate to him.' Are you kidding me? He's the most relatable character ever. He grew up on a farm, he doesn't have a lot of friends, feels isolated, he can't tell everybody what his secrets are. He's a great character. He feels overlooked -- who hasn't felt overlooked, or wanted to connect with people? All social media is, is people wanting to connect with other people. That's all it is. Because people long to connect with other people. And Superman is the embodiment of that. He's more relevant now than ever."

-- Geoff Johns, discussing his approach to "a human Superman" in "The Men of Tomorrow" storyline
