It's Only the End if You Want it to Be

30 Days of DC∟ Day Eight: Canon pairing you ship → Clark Kent & Lois Lane


There’s a scene in Kill Bill vol 2 where Bill is having a relatively speech about the identity of Superman. He says that, essentially, Superman is the real person with Clark Kent as the “Costume”, that Clark is how Superman views humanity. I disagree to this view. Before there was Superman or Kal-el (Superman’s kyrptonian name) there was Clark Kent, the humble farm boy from Smallville, found by John and Martha Kent. They raised him as though he was their own flesh in blood. In time John and Martha told Clark about his heritage but with the teachings and values instilled in him by the Kents, Clark would in turn become Superman. Not because he wanted to rule over humanity, but because he’s just doing what Ma and Pa taught him. Before there was Superman there was Clark Kent. Lois, Jimmy, Perry and everyone else Clark meets further cements his humanity. 

^ I completely agree with this. One of the most special things about Clark is that in spite of his alien heritage, he completely loves and embraces humanity. It’s like Dick said when he described Clark as ‘the most human guy I ever met”. Clark doesn’t view himself as separate from humanity or above us. And that’s part of what makes him so amazing. In spite of his extraordinary nature, he believes in the power and goodness of humanity more than anyone else.
And Clark’s love for Lois is part of that. I think it speaks volumes that Clark wouldn’t go looking for someone like himself, someone like Diana, someone with supernatural abilities beyond the norm. No, he fell in love with an “ordinary” mortal - who, in his eyes, is about as far from ordinary as you can get. Because Clark never needed someone to have superpowers to see them as special. In his eyes, Lois is the most extraordinary woman in the world, simply for who she is - for her intelligence, her courage, her love of truth, her incredible inner strength. Lois was Clark’s partner and equal in every sense of the word, and she didn’t need superpowers to be that. And that sent a powerful message, I think. It spoke volumes about who Clark was as a person, as a hero, about the way he viewed the world. Lois was more than Clark’s love interest. His relationship with her was an essential part of his character. And she is not replaceable.
