The Morality and Ethical Duty of Superman

Host Anthony Desiato digs into the morality and ethical duty of Superman with guest Rich Wagner (Heroes Homebase Podcast). What are the ways Superman has inspired us? How can we reconcile his position as a paragon of virtue with his dishonesty toward Lois and execution of Zod? How far SHOULD the character go in the use of his powers? Specific stories discussed include SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE, SUPERMAN: PEACE ON EARTH, Zack Snyder's MAN OF STEEL, the 90s "King of the World" storyline, and more.
