Superman’s new motto falls ‘American way’

Generations of young TV viewers knew Superman— “Caped Crusader,” who posed as a daily newspaper reporter — as a Krypton-born, Kansas-bred hero who fought evil to promote “truth, justice, and the American way.”

The slogan, first used during the 1940s for radio serializations of the comic book and revived in the early days of the Cold War in the 1950s, is being replaced in new editions of the popular comic book series.

“With a nod to the past and an eye to the future, it was announced today at the DC FanDome that Superman’s motto is evolving into ‘Truth, Justice and a Better Morning'”, a announcement from DC Comics said.

“Superman’s new motto” Truth, Justice and a Better Morning “better reflects the global stories we tell across DC and to honor the character’s incredible legacy of over 80 years of building a better world,” DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee said in the press release. “Superman has long been a symbol of hope that inspires people from all over the world, and it is the optimism and hope that propels him forward with this new mission statement,” he added.

According to entertainment magazine Variety, the slogan changed to “truth, justice and freedom” in the 1960s cartoon, “The New Adventures of Superman.” It was revived in the feature film “Superman” from 1978, which played the late Christopher Reeve, although later films have not used the term.

The comic book publisher said the new slogan would be inserted “to Clark Kent’s Superman, [and] will be shown across all media, including comics, movies, TV, video games and more. ”

The information comes on the heels of last week’s news that the latest cartoon Superman, Jon Kent, son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, will “come out” as bisexual when he is shown locking lips with budding reporter Jay Nakamura.

Now the company says, “the next generation of Superman characters like Jon Kent will fight for ‘Truth, Justice and a Better World’, which was first introduced in SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL # 1.”
